Serious as a heart attack. Our scheduling software does not track per diem.

Our leadership has told us swift us applied for 10 more acft to the fleet with the DOT. Looks like 2 will be cargo birds for DHL out on the west coast.

Also looks like theyíre going to explore adding wide bodies to the fleet. Talk of a330s in cargo and pax config. Not confirmed on type yet.

Probably starting DOD flying on last quarter which will be huge for the company.

ETOPs certification in the works.

As far as pay, was told to address it to our COO when he comes in 2 weeks or so to have a pilot meeting.

We arent getting A330ís. To get 10 A330ís you need more than the total amount of pilots now to fly them! Longhaul aircraft are a 117 nightmare. Tell me how the CEO has plans for more aircraft and larger aircraft, yet has nothing to say about pay to attract more pilots to fly them. This is just more used car salesmanship. Why would the CEO defer to his COO? He wants to give you good news about the PROSPECT of growth and then leave the bigger part of the equation out of the picture. We dont have commonality in procedures or equipment in the 737ís, but yea, we are gonna get A330ís and fly international cargo and passengers! Who is selling A330 freighters? Follow the trail!

3 years ago Swift was to get a DHL contract with 1-2-3-4 freighters.
One freighter showed and thereís still no DHL contract.
2 years ago 76ís were to come, 76ís for everybody!
And now Airbus
I can see the MX logbooks already:

They werenít able to get the 2nd acft out of Europe in time for the contract so DHL walked out. That was outside of swift control, but it happened.

Seems like a lot of focus onto cargo now.

CEO said the operational stuff is COOs position, not his. So things that happens in flt ops are pushed down from there. Anytime thereís pay information it comes from COO. Itís how itís always been.

They didnít confirm a330s it was an acft type they were exploring for cargo and pax ops. 777 is better for cargo in the end, wider fuselage than an a330. Doesnít have to be commonality it would involve a whole new type anyway. Whether itís a 76 or a330 a new type is a whole different mess.

Cargo doesnít have to be 117, the 737 cargo plane is under 121. If they go for a long haul type anyway theyíll be on their own schedules anyway, So that shouldnít be an issue. Just not enough schedulers to deal with it, thatís the key.

Well weíre already short for the addition of 2 NGs anyway. We have a good interview session planned out with a lot of interest. Obviously for the long term pay and everything else will need to follow.

So itís not because they bought the wrong plane? A -300 instead of a -400?
Less cargo capacity then DHL specfied?
Because that was a very persistent rumor back in the dark days.....

Seems they signed it with a 300 back then because they were both 300s. Number 2 never got released in time. So there it went.
