I know nothing is official until it's official, but curious if there are any rumors circulating about any new domiciles.

Or now that MKE is open, is any further expansion unlikely in the near term?

ANC is on the table. Trips will start at 0200 local with a DH that you will not be released from.

I'd imagine staffing issues will need resolved before new domiciles are on the table.

I was told at a recruitment event that you guys will be getting some DEN flying with hopes of a domicile \_(ツ)_/

FWIW the bigwigs were in ORD today and it was mentioned that they met with UAL and explained some of the scheduling inefficiencies being handed to us by UAL which seemed to be well received. They also stated they are exploring more domocile possibilities. But they have said that before and it turned into nothing so believe it when you see it.

I would prefer a meeting about getting rid of DGS for any and all ground handling operations.

HEAR! HEAR!

"Sorry folks we're waiting to be parked. We contracted with our competitor Delta to handle our flights. They've pulled all the workers to go work their own flight."

That is a great PA.

Many of the DGS employees in the outstations worked for United previously. I see a lot of them still wearing United lanyards.

Well received, and acted on, so it would seem. Check CSS.

The May schedule.

I see the April/May schedule comparison on daily departures but I'm thinking that was decided months ago. Whatever they talked about recently won't show up for a couple of months. Just my thoughts.

Hmmm. With the latest update methinks you're right. No idea how we're gonna scale that wall.

Very few United people stayed over to work for crumbs at DGS. United gives DGS employees unis, lanyards, etc for working the flights. Supposedly Express by United is supposed to take all the outstations back in 3 years. Can't come soon enough.

got a postcard the other day offering up to $14,500 in bonuses for A&Ps
and Avionics in DAY and MKE.

MX base first then crew base?

CAE DAY and MKE are our main mx bases where we do revenue flights. MKE is now a base, and the email from MP alluded to possibly opening up a crew domicile at a mx base in the future. Both would be two leg commutes to uncommutable schedules.

But on the bright side, upgrades are now down to less than 3 years, albeit to a reserve position with lots of upgrade bypasses to keep you on reserve longer.
