    Hey Skyvector and Dacuj,

    I thought you guys said the flow is 5 years. Then why is EGF having to take a BETTER position elsewhere AFTER being here 11 years?

    Waiting for the comments about I don't know about projections, etc., etc., etc...

    Only applies to the select few. He must've been a bad boy.

    It takes a special kind of brass balls to presume you know what's best for someone else's career.

    Maybe his family is from SFO and he wants to be based there. Maybe he likes the culture at Southwest.

    None of us know where the industry or any specific company will be in 5 years, let alone in 20 years. The only reason anyone wants to be at ENY is to move on to a better job. The man (or woman?) found a better job. Wish him well and worry about yourself.

    His "furlough fodder" claim regarding United is baseless too.

    He's right that UAL will furlough if they get into trouble and need to shrink. But so will AA or DAL or anyone else you work for, for that matter.

    Agreed, but he implied United was more likely to furlough vs. AA. That assertion is baseless.

    Furloughs are not likely at any of the big 3 over the next several years. Hiring may stop during an economic slowdown or other moderate event but furloughs unlikely due to the large number of retirements.

    True, but a significant unforeseen event (which is why they are called that be it "moderate" or worse) that causes hiring to stop means no flow for that period of time. One must also consider internal issues at any one carrier that may be only applicable to that carrier. Acquisition of another carrier could result in cessation of hiring at one carrier or economics germane to another carrier could result in changes that could result in downsizing ( or "rightsizing"), fragmentation or divestiture. In the case of AA who has a mountain of debt (4 times that of Delta), there is one component that already has them at risk that Delta or United doesn't have. Multiple unforeseen scenarios exist out there for each carrier that could result in a non-hiring period. The astute regional pilot will look beyond who offers them a job first with the assumption that's where they should hang their hat until 65 or a medical issue taps them on the shoulder first. If you have your preferred employer identified, just because another offers you a job doesn't mean you should stop pursuing your desired final destination. For some, AA might be a good stepping stone and for others a different legacy might be a stepping stone for AA.

    Not that they wouldn't, but to date SWA has never furloughed a pilot.

    I'm all honesty, how much more trouble can United get into. They have been thrown under the bus as far as the court of public opinion goes, and they're still turning a profit. Unless N Korea launches an icbm strike on only united bases. I think all the airlines will share the same boat as far as economics are concerned. It's just that Delta united and Southwest will give a bigger chunk back to their employees than AA.

    The legendary lying NY pilot Tim Martins would strongly disagree with you. He was the first and only pilot ever furloughed from SWA. Anyone know where that POS is these days? Still flying F-16's? Full time firefighter? 777 CA at Frontier? All of the above? HA! Lol
