Re: Delta F/A's & Fleet Workers Could Vote on Union Soon

From my understanding is, FT staff are getting angry at the fact that the RR program is replacing FT jobs and that RR's are unreliable. To an extent, that's true. However I think that the RR program is more beneficial as opposed to adding more FT staff. Departments like 120 are meant to be a buildin...

Re: Detroit air service discussion - 2018

Using some basic math, for the month of June 2018, WOW enplaned 3,096 passengers. The flight departed 15 times on an A321 with 220 seats.

220*15= 3,300 total seats for June 2018

3,096/3,300= brings us to an average LF of 94% for June.
