Company posted requests for VLA today on the employee website...I think we'll get a few takers but not enough to ward off the big "F"....Anybody with a 400 or higher number needs to be quite concerned me thinks..
Same thing many say at PSA with the orginal 27. Then it turned into 76 and 33 down grades. Fact of the matter is we have nearly 15% of our group on the street. You figure RAH/AWAC/MESA/PSA with furloughs it was just a matter of time. Flying a DASH or not when routes are cut they are cut. Eventually it had to catch up with PDT. I hope it doesnt but I think to assume you are going to get PHX flying and have no furloughs I believe is a bit overly optomistic.Furlough's? Eh, who knows. I personally don't think so.
Are there things going on that we don't know about, sure. I personally think that there is more going on nowadays over in SBY concerning expanding over in to PHX. I guess only time will tell
What. . .lolI guess all we can hope on is our history. Piedmont/Henson "Fd" 1 time and everyone was recalled in less than 2 months and it was done to show solidarity with mainline pilots as per their request, after 9-11.
Ahhhh yes rumots from the FAA. Might as well just issue a press release now.Actually, you don't have that on lockdown..your turbo-prop contract with US Airways ends in 09"...And a friend of mine in the FAA out in PHX tells me you guys are giving up your Dash flying by choice anyway...
