They'll delay for a bit to prove their points, but not for too long. Why?

Because their programs might also stumble one day and payback is a real biatch...

As for anything else Iíll believe it when Iím sitting in the seat and the check clears.

The only way that could happen is if mgmt did it in a way that upsets both AS and QX pilots.

How's that scope coming along?

Probably need the Max cleared before they announce anything. May not even know what they're doing until Max plays out?

Itís done. Pretty sure they decided to announce without MAX final certification.

2025
321 NB aircraft NG/MAX
80 170ís
3850 pilot seniority in 2025
If the the economy holds, if not there is flexibility to swap out some 737NGís for Maxís.

All Airbus and positions have buyers

Awesome!!! We are MAYBE going to grow by 700 pilots in the next 5 years.... Holly crap... you werenít kidding, I just won lottery! 😂
All kidding aside, if I was a loyal Eskimo customer and found out that my go to airline had ordered a bunch of super, de-certified MAX flying coffins I wouldn't necessarily be all excited about it! Just saying.....

while there will be a FEW people who won't fly on a MAX, most won't know and will happily fly on any jet that gets them to their destination.

Did you mean 2035? You sound more and more like a recruiter everyday.

I understand math is hard for you

3850 - 2932= 918 add 265 retirements company estimate 1183 new hires in 5 years. About 237 a year. Honestly, with transitioning all the Airbus folks, that is the absolute most the training department can handle.
