    Only 10? Any gentleman bets on how long they'll last? I say 60% will be gone before the end of their probation.

    Why do you say that? Fail or quit?

    Well that should cover maybe 1-2 weeks of attrition. I wonder if they are in panic mode cause no one is beating down the door to come here.

    Ardvark was correct, I meant quit. After talking to several FOs over the past year and asking questions such as "How many are left in your new hire class?", "Why did they leave?" and "What are your plans?" I came to the conclusion that more than half will quit for other careers or airlines.

    I wonder if anyone ever considered the the effects of closing LAX on recruiting efforts. They basically shut off half the country, so it's SKW or commuting until you can can move to SKW.

    If I lived west of Denver, I think I'd look pretty much anywhere else.

    True that.
    But the bean counters dont give those issues a dollar value, they should, but they dont.

    Same goes for other things which don't fit on a ledger like leadership, loyalty, morale and teamwork.

    On the plus side, they know how to mouth the words.
