Any idea what's competitive? And if calls have gone out?

Internal recs are a very strong thing, also a history of tuffing it out in Alaska aviation go's a long way. The depth of the resumes on the CPs desk are 150+, alot can be said about QOL when you fly around Alaska 4 days a week and go home every night. Great crews, many are long time Alaskans and enjoy strapping on a Cub afterwork, then bring hunting and fishing stories back to the cockpit of the 73 the following day.

Rumor here at Atlas is Saltchuk to merge Aloha-NAC-Florida West.

Good to know. Thanks. Most of my time is alaska time. I still fly for an Alaska based company, but based in Portland

So Amazon is going to shore up Hawaii, Alaska, and the PNW? Hmm... Fed Ex and UPS are going to have a 3rd player

Putting everything under one roof most likely wont happen. NAC has a well know history in Ak , same with Aloha in Ha. As a pilot group it would make sense to have everyone on the same page.
Although using 767s to bring Amazon cargo to Hawaii and Alaska with one spare on standby may be plausible..... Based in PNW??
I hear that the 76 market place is on fire with Fed EX, Atlas, ABX, and NAC looking for both new and used airframes.

I'd say you can forget about the 767 being reasonably priced at the moment. Maybe some A300's?
