Easily corrected. A great friend whom I used to fly with was from Mexico. I just told him to switch the ‘J” from “Jaw Damper” and substitute it for the “Y” in “Royer”..

This deal really highlights the significant threat of massive layoffs for the pilots of Atlas/Southern down the road when/if Amazon decided to start up their own airline.
Sounds awfully familiar. Go back to the early 1980’s. UPS had Orion, Ryan, and Evergreen flying UPS jets. Then one day in 1988 decided to bring it all in house.

I heard it was more like the FAA told UPS to bring it in-house. I am surprised that AMZ and DHL have been able to get away with the system as it is now. If I was FDX or UPS, I would have raised the BS flag long ago.

The FAA of today is a different machine than what it was. That manifested itself in 2 airframes as of late.

The mainline/regional model has set the current legal precedents. It is a different time. Or just look at the FDX/FDX feeder legal and operational structure.

The FAA is now willfully blind to the puppet strings. Just as they are willfully blind to the actions of CEOs and COOs. And neither of those are bugs, they are features.
