    Sounds like a desperate glass-hole scare bomb to me.

    A negative person would say half a glass is empty, a positivive person would say a half glass is not empty, a realist would say piss in that glass and fill it up until you here the glass choking.

    Glass is a scare tactic maneuvering person, nothing positive will happen coming from him or AAG since they hired him. So piss on both AAG and glass.

    Just an opinion
    Sir, can I have another.

    The sky is falling!! Go pound sand, because all you got is Glass. My motivation has vanished for this place. Place them here, place them there. IDGAF! You've screwed us over for a F'n dollar and that has done the damage.

    The Author for this article is in the pocket of AAG. This is a horrible piece that doesn't mention at all the issues the regional industry is facing. Issues that give the Envoy pilots the leverage they never had. Some of those guys that are "to senior" were hired during an era when applicants paid the regionals to obtain a job. Today, the signing bonus for new recruits are as high as 12,000.
    In my opinion Envoy is already on track to be a ground service provider. Envoy will never have an airplane under its certificate. With out pilots and dispatchers on its pay roll, that's already what it is.


    Again in this article is irrelevant. It does not touch and the true labor issues that Envoy, AA, and the Industry will face if they continue to "Nickel and Dimed" skilled labor.

    I concur. God save us from glass-holes who think fear and intimidation is a proper and profitable leadership technique.

    Our union shouldn't be negotiating airplanes or hiring practices; only pay and benefits. The first two are the problem of airline management.

    The whole "ground operation" idea is ludicrous. Take down a Two BILLION dollar operation and downsize it to a quarter or less that size? Do they really think they can take business away from the ramp services of other regionals?

    another irrelevant article put out by idiots. why would anyone here care about this place to vote yes on anything??....I believe 50% of the current pilots here will no longer be working for Envoy within 3 years do to majors hiring ...i was leaning toward a career here, but now hate the place with enough vigor that i am getting my log book in order, packing my man purse with discount bought M&M's and moving along as should everyone else.... let the place burn to the ground and as allays vote NO!!

    Am I missing something? I'm not seeing the fear in there. The article stated both sides' positions and mentioned the pilot shortage. I don't expect AAL to change its tune until it's too late. These guys are always fighting the last battle, not the next one.
