What can a pilot do about it? Honestly, the answer is "nothing." If they learn fast enough for the company to survive, that's great. If they don't, there's nothing you could have done to fix it anyway.
I can't agree more. I see some positive indications that QX management, particularly DC, has realized this. I think even BT at AAG may have as well.

But the proof is yet to come. So far we've been fed apology letters, nothing else yet to show for it but schedule reductions. The true test will be seeing what AAG as a whole does about this.

We can't cut our way to prosperity, that has been demonstrated already with 20 misplaced CRJs. If history repeats itself those schedule reductions will be permanent as they retire the two-fan sh*t can with little else changing.
