Last I heard they were talking about putting dudes on 50 hour guarantee to not work so they could keep the gummint cheese. Just a rumor, though, afaik.

Where'd you hear that? I just flew with the Exco and to his knowledge, the company was keeping the min. guarantee hush, hush. I have no doubt we'll see a voluntary furlough, management would like to see 80-100. I bet quite a few guys/gals will take it as well.

The problem I see brewing is another big market correction that very well may be large enough to be a big recession. We'll go from reduced demand due to covid, to reduced demand due to recession. That will carry them at least 4-6 years through what would have been a pilot shortage of epic levels.
The flip-side is with the new administration it looks like global conflicts will keep us all very busy.

If they were talking about a voluntary furlough that had reduced guarantee instead of simply unemployed I could see some interest. Depending on the details, interest could be small or very large.

They did ask ATSG to seek it. Do not know the outcome.

Damn. Where did the flying go? Seems like Omni stayed fairly busy during the worst of 2020 and continued to hire as late as August. Some pax carriers are talking about bringing pilots back from leave for summer flying.
