Further the release announces CEO is working for free until end of September & other managers are taking huge cuts. Quite a nice banding together & circling of the wagons.
I assume just as this reduction was a vast change from the originally announced 10% cut, an increase of service could come back sooner than the April, May, June timeline IF things improved? If there’s a need, AS will fill where needed.
You are seeing the bulk cuts, next I'd expect a few stations & lots more frequencies reduced even further before May. I've not gone digging, but I did speak to my GF who flies for AS while she was on a four day road trip, it was reduced to just three days & then she came home to her domicile & spent 24 hours, then went on a single day trip, PDX-SEA-SFO-PDX. She is getting paid to stay home on a couple of days, but because she's got seniority she likely won't get furloughed, but she told me, they've been told the cuts are just starting.
This next couple of weeks QX is down to 1 r/t daily from PDX to RDM.
AS 2325 9:40 am - 10:28 am PDX - RDM E-175 (plane goes on to SAN)
AS 2236 12:25 pm - 1:12 pm RDM - PDX E-175 (plane comes in from LAX)
Also QX chopped PDX-EUG down to 1 r/t daily.
AS 2130 3:10 pm - 3:54 pm PDX-EUG Q-400
AS 2135 4:30 pm - 5:14 pm EUG-PDX Q-400
And PDX-MFR is down to just 2 flights daily.
AS 2821 4:05 pm - 5:05 pm PDX-MFR Q-400
AS 2059 10:50 pm - 11:50 pm PDX-MFR Q-400
AS 2094 3:40 pm - 4:40 pm MFR-PDX Q-400
AS 2084 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm MFR-PDX Q-400
