Really? Is this a joke? Seriously, you need to read the previous threads to understand the train wreck this company is.

The most junior captain is a 1994 hire... havenít had an upgrade class in 2 years... zero growth... over half of the pilots are on reserve.

There are much better places to work. Like every where.
No growth plans
No upgrades
Management that consistantly violates the contract
Management that is trying to take every meaningful work rule away
Management that has stalled for 4 years in contract negotiations
A chief pilot who denies every single grievance
Reserve life that has virtually no rules
Pilots with 20+ years leaving
Almost everyone hired in past 3 years with apps out everywhere.
Answer your question?

Hey Soapy this is on you and your dynamic management team.
1. Your entire scheduling department left for Atlas.
2. Your attrition rate is beyond industry norms.
3. You lost another Arbitration which will effect ATSG because of your arrogance.
Get a clue dude.

Still no upgrades in well over a year!

Grievances at an all time high and no negotiations planned.
Any management telling potential new hires there will be a contract "soon" is a flat out lie. They have been telling new hires that for almost 3 years!

They have been talking about upgrades like it should have been done after the first of the year! At this point even if we can rebound from getting a contract, the damage that they are doing keeps getting worse. Its getting exhausting trying to tell friends and family what I do. They ask, ď what is an ABX?Ē I just tell them I haul trash. Iím sure even local garbage men get more respect than us.

People thinking about coming here, the only reason we get things that most other places get is due to OSHA and health code violations. The government has to almost force things.

Also...hope you like sitting next to the crapper when getting airlined. Yep...its probably done on purpose. If they had a seat you could buy on the toilet...they would do it

February performance numbers are in. Once again ABX Air crews did an excellent job with 98.62% on time for DHL and 98.81% on time for Amazon. No delays were caused by flight crews. Here's to hoping our efforts will be recognized by our management and customers. I'm proud to be part of this team.

If it were a plantation we wouldnt be collecting pay checks and it would be illegal to quit.

By team I mean the pilot group. I'm not expecting the mgmt to suddenly appreciate the efforts of the pilots. I'm not that new. Soaper walked in and told me everything I needed to know about 2 years ago.

He stopped talking because everytime he opened his mouth 5 more pilots quit! His constant drival of needing to be the cheapest in the industry so he gets his bonus was getting old!

According to the story I heard, the FAA told him to knock it off because he was disrupting the learning environment.

I think they need to be upgrading more than just 2 a month from now until August. Captains cycle through the FIFO twice as hard as FOs. The Company is so behind the curve, we are hiring for attrition that happened months ago. Canít wait to see the grand plan for ILN. We need to upgrade like 4-6 a month and run a class of 10 FOs from now until the end of the year.

I was expecting more. This is purely conjecture, but given 99 FOs on the May bid qual list vs. 111 captains, I'm guessing they don't want to drain the FO list any more than that until they start getting FOs on line. You get the lists too unbalanced and you run into a situation where you not only don't have any FOs to junior man, but you can't junior man check airmen to the right seat either because they're busy training new FOs. It's the old conundrum - fish or cut bait?
