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!
Wow 2 upgrades announced 2...100 more Fos to go with no airplanes scheduled for delivery!

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?

Bold prediction. ABX lied to 5 more suspecting potential new hires telling them ABX will have a contract "soon"

The good news is that this could be a good diet for some. I came in to do a JFK turn. 04:45 showtime. Hotel restaurant is closed. Cafeteria is closed. No catering on the airplane, and youíre working till 12:20.

Since domestic catering was never negotiated in the current contract we are operating under....you are probably not going to suddenly start seeing it. Just like paying for our hotels in domicile....home based was not negotiated. We took pay instead. At the time and for the next 8 or so years ABX was the highest paid ACMI operator anywhere. It's all negotiable...we could eat surf and turf on every leg if we accept work rules and retirement/disability like the other ACMI's have. Be home based too! Tell your union what you MUST have and are willing to settle for.

I try to eat healthy. There ainít much of that in the vending machine. I usually have protein bars in my bag. This never happens when u have bars in your bag
Iím ok without catering when there are options. At 4:45 am with the cafeteria closed, it sucked. .
I donít need home basing. Iíd prefer the added $17,000 in my 401K

Could this be ABX new hire list for seeking new hires?
Come to ABX there is 50% chance you will have a better job in less than 3 years!
There is a 70% chance you might get a 767 type!
Why go to a regional for a $40,000 signing bonus when that's what you will make here your first year!
12 hours of ready reserve in CVG is what you need this summer!
Jr Manning is picking back up, your home life will suffer but you will get to see the world in the middle of the night working 20 days in a row!

You get to work for some of the highest paid management in the world who took deep concessions from the pilots and never gave it back!
You get to work for a guy who loves to threaten your career everyday!

What a swell place.
