Looking forward, IMHO, the hiring will be unable to pace attrition, much less expansion.

Surging Earnings Estimates Signal Good News for Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings (AAWW)
May 11, 2015 by Zacks Equity Research
Published on May 11, 2015

Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, Inc. is a Transport-Air Freight company that could be an interesting play for investors. That is because, not only does the stock have decent short-term momentum, but it is seeing solid activity on the earnings estimate revision front as well. These positive earnings estimate revisions suggest that analysts are becoming more optimistic on AAWW’s earnings for the coming quarter and year. In fact, consensus estimates have moved sharply higher for both of these time frames over the past four weeks, suggesting that Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings could be a solid choice for investors.
Current Quarter Estimates for AAWW
In the past 30 days, 3 estimates have gone higher for Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings while only 1 have gone lower in the same time period. The trend has been pretty favorable too, with estimates increasing from 67 cents a share 30 days ago, to $1.00 per share today, a move of 49.3%.
Current Year Estimates for AAWW
Meanwhile, Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings’ current year figures are also looking quite promising, with 3 estimates moving higher in the past month, compared to none lower. The consensus estimate trend has also seen a boost for this time frame, increasing from $3.88 per share 30 days ago to $4.63 per share today, an increase of 19.3%.
Bottom Line
The stock has also started to move higher lately, adding 31.7% over the past four weeks, suggesting that investors are starting to take note of this impressive story. So investors may definitely want to consider this Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) stock to profit in the near future.

What retirements? IBT site shows 31 for this year. More than covered by the class of 18 followed, by the class of 24, 24, 24... Not to mention all the hiring before that.

As for attrition, I suppose it depends on your reference point. Hiring in 2012 to Apr 13 was pretty steady then it dried up with only 2 small classes the rest of the year after Apr 22nd, Until Feb 14 and it's been pretty steady since. When I started in Feb 14 we had around 1000 +/- a few so we have gained a little since then. The company's annual report lists 959 pilots as of 31 Dec 13. So in their eyes I guess the company is a net 85 since that point. So I guess it depends on your point of reference as to gains/losses.


Annual report reference, pg. 11...

Employees

Our business depends on highly qualified management, operations and flight personnel. As a percentage of our consolidated operating expenses, salaries, wages and benefits accounted for approximately 20.3% in 2013, 20.7% in 2012 and 21.0% in 2011. As of December 31, 2013, we had 1,792 employees, 959 of whom were pilots. We maintain a comprehensive training program for our pilots in compliance with FAA requirements, in which each pilot regularly attends recurrent training programs.

The running of 24 in a class may well be an experiment to see if they can do it and how well it will run. We all hope it is for growth, but the training can be turned off pretty quickly. New base bid due on Friday. Rumor of some captain upgrades.

The bottom line is that they can and will train their way out of the attrition issue. We've got more leverage than just that when negotiations open next year. Things will get better. How much better is the real question.

We've hired a ton since the beginning of the year, so no clue what's going on. With such few upgrades I'm not hopeful for growth. I'm guessing they'll be like 10 upgrades this bid, not the rumored 50 people think. We'll see in a few days. I also heard they're taking a month or two off on classes for those of you in the pool.

I'm hearing 16 upgrades on the 15th, with 50 as a target for the year.
