Default ABX Interview - Is it worth it?

Ok thanks.

So Iím confused at times between ABX, Atlas and Southern. From what Iím reading ABX is hiring & filling classes with less experienced applicants in its pilot pool? This is because few pilots with experience are applying, and the ones that do are scared off once they do their research or learn more about the pay and working conditions???

What realistic outcome does this pilot group have? I mean if business as usual continues as it is now, what is the expectation/time-line for improvements?

Or do many of you feel only a Colgan (cargo version) accident/major incident will cause change to happen at ABX. If so, that is very sad to sit and wait for it.

I respect you guys fighting overall, i will find my way to picket in support when the time comes, when you guys decide on a action plan.

Thanks from the legacy guys at ABX. We are a tight knit group who have held this place together since DHL screwed us in 2008. New management is sitting on top of a ticking time bomb.

I fell and broke my back at work.I had finally after 9 months won the workers comp claim. But ABX in typical fashion just appealed the workers comp decision. Itís costing me thousands of dollars in lawyer fees and expert testimony. Not to mention the stress.
This company does not like the pilot group. Do not come here! Even if we get a contract and more airplanes. This place will still be toxic.

I hope u can get the legal fees back from ABX through the court process.

From a fellow ACMI/DHL/Amazon airline pilot,

God Bless, and Namaste...

A new low for ABX. Good luck Franz. This company is despicable.

Didn't the ABX-DHL contract expire yesterday? They were assuming that it was going to get renewed, but I haven't heard or seen anything public yet.
