Which one of these statements written about 1 hour apart are true?
Yesterday morning we had 4 Amazon fights delayed for crew. The PDX-CVG was delayed 24 hours due to no FO after a FTG call, and itís still hasnít left yet.

ONT-MIA left about 18 hours late yesterday due to no crew ( BTW, this is a crew base )

Many more running late due to crew rest.

Iíve been tracking amazon delays every day for the last few months for the union. The last 30 days things have started to get worse, ASAP open time emails for Amazon are coming out left and right.

Atlas is propping up the Amazon flights however AMC is runnning 2-3 days late acrosss the board. Weíve have crews stuck in places for 3-4 days waiting on the AMC birds.

Southern Air 777- running 18 hours late CVG-BAH this morning due to no crew ( at a crew base ) this is a daily occurrence for the 777.

5 767 pilots- I personally know are leaving this month for other airlines. Things will not getting any better anytime soon. The training dept is finally cracking skulls in Miami, many failed PC/PTís recently and a few have been sent home.

What a disaster. Seems like it's getting much worse.

Since Amazon is in this conversation stream, here's just the latest in a long line of reports about life in the "jungle"

https://nypost.com/2019/07/13/inside...ouse-employee/

Interesting perspective from a professional reporter who didn't just observe, but actually had a job at one of these facilities. One statement in particular grabbed my attention.

"Her biggest surprise, she tells The Post, is not just how much abuse her co-workers were willing to endure, but how they remained optimistic and grateful despite often staggeringly brutal conditions."

This is why there isnít a contract nor will ever be one.

Amazon doesnít care if Momís black mamba arrives a day late- this bill is paid; prime member paid, and the customer will forget itís late, the second it arrives.

Nothing to see here.

Cheap to settle with the customer too. Amazon will extend your membership by a month if you contact them, but most probably are not that motivated.
