Yup your Cockpit is enormous
Yup your extra 8 inches is awesome
Oh your extra inch, oh yeah I feel that.
Oh your bathroom, I twirl around like a ballerina.
Who cares, what does it PAY!

Airbus “follow the leader”
If it’s not Boeing “I am not going” I just don’t care, there both just NB jets but in 2020 I better be making at least $285 an hour to fly one of them!
No pilot should be wanting any airframe to go away, period.

Stop fixating on a pay number, this will be the 2020 mistake. Let’s all
Say it together...work rules, work rules, work rules.

$250 isn't much in the grand scheme of my life, but if I can find a way to save that much annually, I'll do it.

The two airlines might be similar in size, but they're not the same. What makes sense for Alaska (or Southwest, for that matter) may not apply to Hawaiian, which serves both the local market and areas outside that, which are all 4+ hours away.

You stop your logical thinking right now! Rational thought is not o.k. on APC. Mods, remove this poster immediately as he is sure to confuse everyone by making sense.

I don’t want any NB’s to go away and they won’t... they are being replaced. Large MAX order with a significant number of options is done. “Proudly all Boeing” to return, and the transition rate will surprise. Should be announced late February, BP wants to hold off and announce w/ Q2 numbers in mid July. It is absolutely a done deal... thanks RC, our future looks bright!

BM just said today that it isn't a done deal, but that all Boeing was the most likely option. So...

He wasn’t completely honest then. That doesn’t surprise me. The finance side is nervous about announcing such a large order without having proved the synergies of this merger to Wall Street. Airbus is in town next week in a last ditch effort, but yes I am positive it’s done.

Maybe in a different era. I’ve seen the schedules... not many, if any, 5 or six leg days anymore.... not without DH’s at least
