At this point you really should just be looking for any job that pays you money.

Re: Layoffs

Flat pay should be flat. If it is X amount when you are busy it should still be X amount when you're not. That's a risk you take when you set up something like flat salary. Bingo. The whole point of a guarantee for such low pay is so it' can't go lower. AC pilots already work for substandard wages ...

Re: Layoffs

Hard to layoff a mixed fleet of pilots from the bottom up when current speculation is this will be nearing completion in a few months.

Layoffs need to last much longer than 3-6 months to be financially viable.

China also locked down essentially the entire country, in their homes.

In Canada I still see people showing up to work coughing and going to bars/clubs.

The last couple days confirmed cases in Canada increased by about 30%/day, currently at about 600. If cases increased by the same rate for 30 days, we would see 1.5 million. In 40, about 22 million. Not saying that will actually happen, but it illustrates the problem. Misinformation and panic is th...

Re: The return of bonds?

If that was the case most bonds would be $2500 on things like Navajos.

Instead you have places doing "training" on empty legs they are getting paid for and making pilots sign $15,000 bonds for something that cost nothing or VERY little.

It's there to manipulate pilots, that's it.

Re: The return of bonds?

Bonds have always been a shady way for shitty operators to push their pilots to do things they shouldn't in fear of losing their job. There are enough reputable operators out there that don't have bonds, and if EVERYONE just walked away every time they were told you need to sign a bond they would AL...

If we were like Europe or Asia with no real seniority they would just lay off whoever they wanted from each position/roster without any issues. Just like what happened in Cathay and Norwegian. Not true. Cathay has not laid off pilots, yet. They have halted hiring and postponed all future courses. H...

The TP shortage is a nice example of supply chain disruption. It won't stop with TP - for example anything produced in China won't be getting re-stocked. Once the current supply runs out - that's it. People haven't figured this out yet - once they do it will be complete anarchy in the stores. ...So...

Re: Grab a seat. The music is stopping

And don't they send a ton of pilots to Europe in the summer?

They were going to be really fat on pilots very quickly. I can understand why they did what they did.
