Lets hope a comprehensive plan is being negotiated with a plan for 767 Pay rates that bump up the 757 to wide body, and fixing the FDA LOA for good, so they can open whatever aircraft they like in whatever market without trying to contort themselves. I'm hoping that's what's holding up the bid.
We've had enough false starts and distractions around this place with displacements, 4a2b and multiple cancelled bids. I hope they quit trying to bet the farm on one huge bid. Its hard on us, hard on the bean counters. It ought to be an evolving process with lots of smaller bids. If they want guys to settle down, focus on professionalism and be safe, they need to stop this Cataclysmic Bid mentality.
It's time to for us all to settle down and start making money.
