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. Can’t 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 you’re working till 12:20.

And no NDO either, right? But wait, why didn’t you just use the vending machines?

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.
