    Still a pyramid scheme like all other regionals at the moment with the exception of endeavor.

    Get/sucker as many people in the door as you can and hope they didn't realize the surprise that will hit them come 2nd year pay.

    Just a business throwing as little $$$ at a problem as possible thinking it will solve that problem, but a problem that is on the precipice of putting them out of business. More to come. The weaker "unanchored" players will collapse first (which will be good for players like Envoy in the near-term). Some might be acquired in whole or part, so don't be surprised if the stronger carriers (which Envoy is at present) circle in like sharks to feed off some of those carcasses. These are nothing more then delay tactics though as sooner rather then later, they'll realize (but too late) they killed the Golden Goose, that being an ample supply of pilots. It's not JUST about pay, but about respect and treatment and I don't need to lecture anyone here on that (the DMG an obvious exception). Envoy's future is no less cloudy, but it will take longer for them to end up in the same place, but absent MAJOR changes in philosophy about their pilots, they will.

    Sooner or later, either they'll have to merge Envoy into AA or replace much of its present flying with mainline Group I. Few delivery slots available for any Group I type NextGen jets and even if ordered today, will take years to ramp up and the collapse may just happen much faster then that. But, scope changes are a non-starter among AA pilots who've been disrespected and played too hard and for too long by their management team, so draw a line through any changes there as an option. Not a lot of good options for AAG, at least ones that won't end up sacrificing market share until squared away or eroding already questionable product quality. That's what happens when you kick the can too long and too far with no plan that's quickly adaptable. Actually, if StopJets was smarter, they'd realize paying (and treating properly) ALL their pilots is necessary as simply forking over $$$ to questionable suckers coming in the door, doesn't slow those going OUT the door. They too will learn the hard way and much too late.

    The tsunami wave is approaching the beach now and some will panic while others continue the party believing themselves to be on high enough ground. I have STRONG doubts about that.
