FCIF says program manager is returning to the line.

Seems like lots of management changes. Is this just a function of natural turnover or is there a new direction afoot?

Discuss....

Strange things are afoot at the Circle K...

I'd be impressed if anyone remembers what movie that came from...

It's not from the same movie that states "There's a new sheriff in town" is it?

I was wondering the same thing. Maybe we should start a juicy rumor!

I thought Buck just took over the program when O went to SCP... Must have had a divergence of opinion. You're right,that seems to be happening a lot lately. Rumors are that MP went back to the line because he couldn't (or wouldn't) cut his training budget sufficiently. Does not bode well for safety, IMHO.

We were discussing this in a van ride with a new hire recently. We told him that the Paris return made sense due to tax implications and DS retiring soon (and wanting to fly the line). With this new change, not really sure what to think? GD surprised me a little, but a new aircraft, time for a change? MP + BB both returning to the line is a new wrinkle. Also, why didn't BB stay on the 757?

Besides being a bunch of gossips and rumor mongers (formulating yet another reason to waste time), not sure how this will affect our future.

Bueller? Bueller?

Or hiring.

Or seat progression.

"O" boy.
