Has anyone heard anything about the three airplanes out there? Since last year, there were a bunch of rumors that we were going to get more Airways flying but just recently, I had heard that the remaining three airplanes are to soon be gone. I didn't really think much of it because the story has changed a few times over the past year but just recently, a gate agent asks us out of the blue when our last flight for them is.

Has anyone heard anything?

Doug Parker said in the crew news the other day all contract carriers are down to contractual mins and they have to abide by that. And basically if there was any other options to keep PDT employees from losing their jobs he would do so since he wants to take back as much USairways flying and keep it in house. So I would highly DOUBT there's any more USairways flying to go anywhere.....

Isn't all the Airways flying at-risk? If so, no matter how much TSA picks up, it doesn't effect anyone else.

i actually heard that Republic was going to pick that stuff up. I dont know if they were going to use the 145's or 170's but thats what I heard. Realisticly, its Usairways flying in and out of PIT its only a matter of time till its all gone (including republic's base).

All I've heard is that we're hiring more dispatchers.

Is that for "trans states holdings"?

No, no, that "other" side is a separate company... Duh.. They would NEVER do such things as share dispatchers... or maintenance people...

I would be surprised if RAH picks up any more flying. AWAC now has contractual mins Airways is worried about. RAH is still above contract mins. Its just a matter of time they just pull out of PIT all together and move on. Do some connection flights and call it a day. They have abandoned it in every other way so why stick around? We all know its going to happen, its just more of the WHEN we do not know about.

i just keep hoping that as long as we have that lease on the hangar theres hope i will still be based at home. My neigbor who is a ramper for USAir has already given up hope of ever being based at home again.

I did hear today from a gate agent in Greensville that Republic was buying Transstates. She knows people and says it's a done deal.

So we can all get ready for that.

In the land of Indy, in the fires of Mount Westeir Shupubliqah, the Dark Lord Bedford forged in secret, a master ring, to control all others. And into this ring he poured all his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life. One ring to rule them all. One by one, the free peoples of Middle Earth fell to the power of the Ring. But there were some who resisted...

If nothing's going to happen they might as well enjoy the scenery.

That was my line...;)

One ring to rule them all
one ring to find them
one ring ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them
