    The low-hanging fruit is nipped first. Over the next few years the higher branches will start getting sparse too. Speaking of which, what’s the latest Envoy class stats ? Wasn’t there supposed to be a class within the last few days ?

    Yes, Envoy is not getting enough new hires with Captain mins and the new hires aren't happy with the taxes being taken on the bonuses.

    You guys still selling that 6 year flow that goes along with the advertisement I saw yesterday on APC? Seems like recruiting is running out of ammo so they are going back to the old tactics of selling the inherently false 6 year flow.

    Neider was in an new hire class a few weeks ago telling them that they will flow to aa in less than 6 years. AND they have something in the works to flow them even sooner. This did happen. Straight from the mouth of 4 new hires I talked to separately in the training hotel. I told them what it currently is and to ask their ground school instructor what it really is. The union rep that visited them the next day told them the truth. A few bummed faces to say the least.

    It should be criminal for a person in management to knowingly tell lies to an employee.

    Just FYI. I am not who you guys think you have figured out. Definitely not Chris. Don't want anyone to get a bad rap when they haven't done anything.

    Absolutely nothing in the works, just parking more 145’s and CRJ’s every month. 67 145’s and 27 CRJ’s on property. 10 175’s coming starting in December. Adding almost 20,000 hours of flying in the next 12 months, and hoping we can staff this airline... “That’s All Folks.”

    So, you’re saying you’ve done something that could give someone else a bad rap if they were mistaken for you?

    ^^ I saw that. It took every ounce of restraint not to say something
