Will be interesting cuts indeed. I'd imagine the intra-AS flying sticks around as it is rather essential to those communities. Maybe anything with multiple frequencies gets cut to 1, and some of the routes to smaller-mid sized cities cut entirely. Obviously the limited international (Mexico) flying they do will likely be cut entirely.
Really hoping that AS and all airlines are returning to a larger schedule after May, but that definitely doesn't seem like a given right now.

It will be interesting to see if AS can remove any of the Airbuses sooner now.

If pilots are furloughed by seniority, I wonder if a disproportionate number of those considered redundant might be AB pilots due to the VX group being lower on the list? I might be wrong on this...I don't know the details on how the seniority lists were merged.

Intra-Alaska flights to Nome will be cut to 1x daily. In addition, you now need a permit to enter or leave the Nome airport. Things are getting a little bit out of hand with the local government and I'm heading down to City Hall today to find out why. As government takes necessary steps to ensure public health, they must also safeguard people's civil rights and liberties.

They could probably park them all right now. Add the Maxs when this is over and never look back.

Grab your lawyer. I want to see you argue in state court that you have a right to make other people sick. If Nome isn't an example of a place that's isolated and with limited medical resources, no place is.

In addition to the schedule reductions, all levels of leadership (myself included) are taking pay cuts of 10% to 30% depending on their role. Hopefully this is enough to avoid even a single job loss to any employee.

Port of Seattle has indefinitely halted Alaska cruises, Canadian ports are closed until at least July1, and both Alaska and Hawaii are instigating 14 day quarantines for anybody entering the state. That makes up a lot of flying in the summer for both Alaska and Delta out ofSeattle, obviously harder on Alaska as they are the much larger carrier in Seattle.

I have so much respect for Alaska and their employees that I hope they come out of this well positioned to continue serving the west as well as they have. And I say that as an employee of a rival.

Forgot to mention the BOD has halted their compensation, and both Brad Tilden and Ben Minicucci have reduced their salaries to zero.

Not sure what percentage Gary took but it's got to be more than the EVP/SVP/VP level, who all took 30% cuts. MDs took 20%, and Director and below took 10%.

Many thanks for the well-wishes. May we all get through this intact, and I look forward to seeing you onboard again soon.

50%. It should be 100% just like the other exec leadership. It just looks bad to me, but what do I know.

Question for you - The workforce retention provision of the aid package from DC explicitly prohibits reductions in pay rates and benefits (and invol furloughs), etc as a condition to receive the aid (Sec 4114) until 9/30/20. Is the way around that by just cutting hours and leaving rates unchanged? I was hopeful that language would keep folks whole.

This is exactly what happened - hourly rates didn't change, but the hours we work did change. This effectively cuts our pay. It hurts, but honestly I'm still thankful to have a job (at least through September).

Nome, Alaska will be 1x daily Monday through Friday until further notice. No weekend service. So down from 14 flights per week to 5. Cargo flights have no restrictions. Continue to see NAC, Everts, Lynden and Alaska Air Cargo on a daily basis.

Yes. I fully agree. But we're dealing with a unique situation in rural Alaska where you have to fly from village to village. Local government has a great deal of control if they restrict access to the airport, folks can’t just hop in their cars. I have a child in Minnesota waiting for surgery with a complex medical condition.... so I went down to City Hall today and got my exit permit in the event I need to leave Nome on short notice. (I've got my papers now, comrade!) Had my permit been denied by the City Manager, the Mayor would have be the next level of appeal, and then I would have had to make a petition to the Superior Court which I would have done and like you said, its illegal to restrict travel between points in the US. But that doesn't mean somebody won't try. And you have to find a willing party to challenge it in courts.

edit: Quickly to address MIflyer12: Back to the question of whether the government - state or federal - can confine persons against their will in order to protect public health. The short answer is yes, but the Constitution requires procedural due process. That means a trial for every person confined. Thus, a government ordered quarantine of all persons in a city block or postal code or a telephone area code would be an egregious violation of due process, both substantive and procedural. Substantively, no government in America has the lawful power to curtail natural rights by decree. Procedurally, notwithstanding the fear of disease contagion, the states and feds may only quarantine those who are actively contagious and will infect others imminently. And it must present evidence of both at trial at which it bears the burden of proof. And a quick side note: We have zero confirmed cases in Wester Alaska.

Earlier, it was reported that Alaska Air Cargo wanted to get their hands on a -800, but that was unlikely before the Max started flying. Has anyone heard if 1) the cargo market is still strong enough to warrant this and 2) if such a dramatic reduction in passenger service might free up an -800 for cargo use?

Are the freighters now able to take full loads? They had a design flaw with the barrier between the cargo area and galley. As of January, they were estimating 30-60 day fix but haven't heard if it has been resolved.

If anything I’d imagine cargo is way up. Everybody is ordering online now. AS used 738’s on cargo only flights last year while the freighters were getting work done, I’d be surprised if they don’t start doing that again.

Plus, AS is supposed to start shuttling oil workers to SCC from “a Pacific Northwest gateway” in order to bypass ANC.

Good luck to AS and their employees. I’m a 75K (grounded for now)...get through this because the places I fly to regularly need you!

AS ran a couple of odd flights today maybe cargo runs or positioning flights. AS9800 from SAN to LIH and AS9802 from SEA to OAK. Both were 800. I guess the could have charters as well.

OAK will be a parking spot for some of the fleet. So I suspect that's where it was heading.

State governments have pretty broad quarantine powers to protect public health. Courts generally don’t get involved either, and when they do, they usually side with states.

And you better hope it doesn’t take off in the villages and communities. If this thing takes off in Nome or some of the even more remote villages, it could theoretically wipe them all out. Makes total sense Nome wants to keep everyone out.

I wish nothing but the best for you and your family. Hope everyone is staying safe!

Had not heard of OAK being a parking spot, only GSO,
OKC and SAT. Guess they need more space with the additional flight pull down. I know a couple of Q400 for QX are stored at Hillsboro, OR and several might also be in Spokane.

QX is definitely going to HIO, saw a picture of a couple of Qs parked on the grass. Didn't realize the Q was an ATA (all terrain aircraft) :duck: . Can't see SNA as being very useful as it is so constrain space wise but you might be able to store some stuff at the unused ground gate in terminal C. Still seems like an odd choice.

In other news, I see that at JFK Alaska is moving from Terminal 7 to Terminal 8 "temporarily".

Any idea why this is happening? I mean, they started at T8 (I was on the inaugural flight from SEA) and moved to the horrible T7 (although the lounge is quite nice there). I can imagine at some point AS moving permanently to T8, given the OneWorld alliance and T7 eventually being torn down.

Anyone?

They are consolidating terminals at JFK due to low demand.

MLB is a good place to park them. AS also does 2ku satellite installs there. If the birds don't have 2ku yet then it can be installed just before they return to service.

Everything is negotiable.

How many 320 left that still have Virgin branded interior? Incentive to peddle those first although the new interiors and contracts for installs are already signed as well.

Wonder where the deal with the lessor on the 319's is? They were supposed to go back to lessor and then be leased onward to AA. If AS deal is still solid, they don't care if AA can't take them - won't be their problem.

MLB is used for satellite 2Ku installs. There is also a MRO down there now. No one will store an aircraft on Florida's coast with Hurricane season coming.

It depends how deep the cuts go which is going to depend on how sharp the rebound is. If demand bounces back and we are back to normal by Q4 then I doubt there will be any furloughs.

We have actually hired quite a bit of pilots post-merger.

The bottom 20-ish percent of pilots are post-merger pilots. A large portion of these are Airbus pilots, as the Airbus bases have ended up as our junior bases. However, they were never VX pilots. The next junior 20% actually went to where the Legacy-AS pilots ended up junior for a given date of hire. If you were hired on the same day, you wound up more junior as a legacy-Alaska pilot. That flips around for 20% above that group. It really all depends on how deep this goes.

Bethel reportedly cut to 3x weekly and Kotzebue cut to 2x weekly. We are anticipating our 5x weekly to Nome will be cut down to 2x weekly shortly.

I kind of am wondering if one SEA-BNA-ATL may be in the works!
Aesthetically the A 340 got it right!

After all ATL is not a OneWorld hub.

I've heard JNU will get down to basically the milk runs.

AS61: SEA-JNU-YAK-CDV-ANC
AS66: ANC-CDV-YAK-JNU-SEA
AS64: ANC-JNU-PSG-WRG-KTN-SEA
AS65: SEA-KTN-WRG-PSG-JNU-ANC

The above are all EAS routes. (https://www.transportation.gov/sites/do ... r-2019.pdf)

However it looks like AS72 and AS79 are still running as of now.

SIT is getting AS70 (ANC-JNU-SIT) and AS73 (SIT-JNU-ANC) as well.

I was also told the amount of cargo they are carrying through JNU right now is at levels they haven't seen in the past.
318, 319, 320, 321, 332, 333, 388, 707, 717, 722, 732, 733, 734, 73Q, 735, 73G, 738, 7M8, 739, 752, 753, 742, 74L, 744, 762, 763, 772, 77L, 77W, 789, 142, CN1, CR2, CR7, DC8, DH2, DH8, D8Q, D10, D95, EM2, ER3, ER4, E70, 100, J31, M11, M83, M88, M90, SF3

See the DOT Show Cause order of 31 March for details of acceptable service levels. If a served point had service by a carrier at least 5x weekly it must be maintained a minimum of 5x weekly - unless AS forgoes payroll grants or gets a waiver.
