ACA Employees At IAD

Fri Dec 19, 2003 10:16 am

SkyWest and other United Express carriers have been on hiring frienzies in Washington D.C., but what about the ACA pilots that might get layed off? Has anyone heard anything about this?

Looks like none of the ACA pilots want to face reality yet.

ACA has been furloughing pilots for the past 9 months or so. The last round of furloughs has already been handed down. ACA pilots are not anticipating any more.

It would have to be Skywest thats hiring.
A judge just blocked Mesa's bid to replace the ACA board.
Meanwhile, to quote Reuters, "the U.S. Justice Department has opened an
antitrust probe into Mesa's $495 million takeover offer, joining a similar probe by District of Columbia antitrust officials." Additionally, Ornstein, the Mesa CEO, has been making retreating noises that he may back off the take-over bid.
