Funny how we're the two they fired.

    Now I drive to Boston from home and am at the gate in about 35 minutes. That is pretty hard to beat and makes it a whole new job.

    I've always been happy, even at Envoy. After all, it's a pretty cool job we have no matter where you're doing it.

    The arbitration hearing went very well. Their case went south. That said, you NEVER know what an arbitrator may do. He may decide he doesn't like short fat guys, who knows.
    Welcome back, Cujo! Commuting sucks and I never liked it even though I did a two-legger as an FO for 7 years and over another year as a Captain to both LAX and ORD. Still, some people like living in a certain place and are willing to commute for a few years before they flow. Not for me.

    Not actually back yet. Still waiting for the arbitrator to give his decision. Their case did fall apart, but you never ever know what an arbitrator may do.

    Thanks DW
