For me this is an interesting dynamic in the markets like EUG that aren't big tourist destinations. From a network perspective, WN ex-EUG will be a lot closer to a legacy than to G4 (good luck flying EUG-CHI, NYC, or ATL on G4). I'm not sure that sort of market is large enough for WN and G4 to coex...Jump to post
+1 There are 8 levels of mgmt. between me and the C-Suite. For a company that prides itself on "flexibility," that's a lot of layers. Regarding the idea of retention: It's worth noting that for months, the company told employees that separating from the company was the single biggest thing...Jump to post
Masks are not political at all in Taiwan - probably why they were able to fully reopen last summer. :sarcastic: The only people making masks political are those who didn't pass high school biology. Instead of making wild assumptions, why don't you simply ask a medical professional why masks may be ...Jump to post

I can tell you with 100% certainty that Grade 9 in TechOps did not get a payout. The payouts were to grades 7-8-10-11-12 and above. Grade 9 has historically been an outlier and not included in MIP because it is tied to the AMT pay scale. This was done because there would be little incentive to adva...Jump to post

Holy cow. That quite literally could have resulted in the airplane crashing. If true, that almost requires some criminal charges to the deicing crew who released that airplane in that condition. That's not fudging the bag count by 1 bag, that is downright scary. I'd say it definitely requires charg...Jump to post
When it comes to the "health experts" and their ultra-cautious approach you'll be waiting forever to get the go head to get back to normal. Folks like Fauci keep moving the goal posts (he's now saying we'll need to wear masks through 2022). Part of that is driven by our complete inability...Jump to post

Our tugs & belts run on gasoline. Other equipment--pushbacks, ground power units, A/C carts, and air starts--takes diesel.
We used to put Jet A in the back engines of our deice trucks, but now just use diesel.

I wonder how AA employees are not more upset about their partnership with B6, they're moving a lot of flying to a lower cost mostly non union competitor.

Delta definitely seems to be doing well based on these numbers. I’ve seen a lot of posts on Deltas Facebook, about people spending more money to fly on Delta because of them blocking middle seats.

Is anyone surprised by any of this in the covid-era of about 30-40% of normal passengers with almost no TPAC or TATL traffic and business traffic down 85%. Lets keep things in perspective here.

Folks, there is an end in sight. The pandemic is going to end. It's going to end soon because we put together a massive effort and we used science to create a vaccine. The vaccine is going to work.

Not a widebody per se, but a United DC-8 accidentally landed at Troutdale (TTD) instead of PDX. I believe they had to strip it to get it light enough for takeoff.
Don't take this as negative post I'm not coming after Delta, in fact it has proven to be a very smart move. It has allowed Delta to avoid furloughs (should they come to an agreement with their pilots) and Delta has left over CARES act funds to help get them through the reminder of 2020.
