Robert Isom is a snake and an idiot.
He is the one that feuded with Scott Kirby and eventually pushed Kirby out the door. His ideas only exist in the theoretical, because he has so little practical experience.
I'm not a lawyer, but if I didn't know they hadn't flown a flight in a week and booked a ticket for, say tomorrow...wouldn't that be a kind of fraud (representing for sale something you have no ability or anticipation of fulfilling)? The owners are basically fraudersters. They sign up for subsidize...Jump to post
That's not remotely true. At my regional, upgrades are around 2 years right now. A captain on year 3 pay will be making in excess of $90/hr, and it will be over $95/hr on Jan 1. The top of our pay scale is like $150/hr. You definitely don't seem to understand the difference between a block hour and...Jump to post
Dude drop this already. Regional pilots are no longer low paid. They start at like 60k with bonuses and your a captain making 6 figures in 12 months these days Captains don't make 6 figures in 12 months. More like 65k. You're seriously uninformed in you think rj captains make 6 figures. Even a RAVN...Jump to post

I love how management throws out pilot shortage as the excuse for bad management.

The owners are SUPER cheap. Pilots checks have been withheld for weeks, invoices for airport charges go unpaid, fuel charges bounce.
The owner is a former Israeli fighter pilot and believes he's really hot sh1t and can do no wrong. Doesn't listen to anybody.
On a similar note, India-US trade is booming. I suspect the movement of manufacturing will help DL's new service to India.Jump to post
The trade deficit was $350B in Chinas favor in 2017. Does the rest of the world think we Americans are going to allow this to continue? How do you think the Chinese are able to snap up real estate and other luxury goods in cash in other parts of the world? Did they suddenly find a rainbow with a po...Jump to post
The US citizens paying Boeing for not delivering planes to China because of Trump's policies. Makes sense I guess. Or how about addressing a MASSIVE trade deficit?

Curious....will the regionals ever open up to foreign labor to help the shortage?.... the majors are good because they take away from the regionals but nobody is replacing those pilots That's the last thing we need.

So a post on a touching airline moment has turned into a full fledged affirmative action debate. Welcome to a.net What? No. A totally stupid moment, made of like 71% schlock, has turned into this. This isn't news. It's a complete yawner of a non-story. As it would be if it were any of the other ump...Jump to post
This would not be a story if this was a father and two sons being Delta pilots. This made news because it's three females in a position that is predominantly male. They are probably fantastic pilots and I wouldn't mind flying with any of them but there is no question that they are Delta mainline pi...Jump to post
Because if the story was about a father with multiple sons, you wouldn’t have heard it. But because it’s all females (who have an easier path to getting hired) it’s newsworthy Yep. People on the outside have no idea how socially engineered flight decks are these days. White males need 6x the experi...Jump to post
When I hired on in the early NWA days we had an anti nepotism policy. I guess those days are over. What if the son or daughter earns the position on their own merits? How do we know the DL daughter isn’t a highly skilled pilot who deserved to be hired? Because if the story was about a father with m...Jump to post
Y'all saying "nepotism" seem to not know what that word means. Here's a refresher from the dictionary: The practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs. Unless the mom's involved in the hiring selection and improperly biasin...Jump to post
AA feels like a better product in ORD. New 787's, A321's and 738's with sky interiors. Even the RJ's are mostly 175's and 145's. United is a hodgepodge of old 777-200's, 737's, 757's, crj-200's..

Not really. Flying over a country that launches missles without NOTAM’s is not a smart thing to do. The MH17 disaster is still a very sensitive subject in The Netherlands. There is still a debate going on why airlines where flying over the Ukraine when just days before missles where fired at milita...Jump to post
Regarding the theorized flight control degradation to direct law, could this mode of control result in the crew having reduced control input on approach and be a cause of the poor landing? Or put another way, would the crew be hampered by the direct law control inputs and thus have a bad landing? T...Jump to post
It had been raining in the area at the time of the aircraft's approach so the runway was wet and had ponding water on it. Imagine if American pilots had to fly in kind of conditions that are routine in the monsoon season in SE Asia. It'd be carnage. Those pilots out there must be damn good. Having ...Jump to post
There is a great chance if a smaller type is introduced, the pay scale will be lower than that of the 737; which actually goes against your argument. And that still doesn't discount the fuel saving, which is the only thing zeke was talking about. Why would the SWA pilots union vote yes to lower pay...Jump to post
Wow, that was hasty! Usually, orders remain until the dust settles....so the potential buyer has no slots of MAX production either... The financing has probably been withdrawn, and Boeing notified of this by the financiers. No finance, no sale. Boeing was probably notified months ago that there was...Jump to post
Apologies if this has been asked before, but a few weeks ago during my visit to DFW, I had actually still seen a couple of the old American Eagle airplanes flying around with the older livery.

Not in India but they do have Sri Lankan Airways which is a OneWorld member. Sri Lankan does have a good coverage of India.
I was just talking to neeleman...turns out he is actually planning on taking this capital to buy back Jetblue and go private. In cohorts with the pilots maybe. They want him back.

The Pilots WANT Neeleman back super bad. I could see the pilot union acting in cohorts with Neeleman/Moxy to enable a coup d'etat.

American owns Argentina. I would never consider UA or DL. DL has issues all the time and with only 1 flight a day they have no wiggle room for any MX issues. Utter nonsense.
