Advance Entitlement. I don’t know where the term comes from. It’s our bid for base, aircraft, and seat (Left or right).

There’s my Pangloss! The old Trip7 is back baby!

Actually, I’ve had kind of a crappy day so bring on the rainbows. I’m skeptical as heck that new hires will be seen in the next year at least but it’s nice to have a little optimism.

That was before any hand-outs from Uncle Sugar (to be fair it was the ridiculous government lockdowns that were a huge part of this industry going into free fall).

We have been uniquely insulated from this economically crushing pandemic. To see a more real world example of economics in action, look no further than 9/11. We had hired all the way up to the summer of 2001, stopped hiring late summer, the tragic events of 9/11 happened, and we furloughed as soon as November. Those guys didn't return for over five years, and that was repeated throughout the industry.

Absent all the CARES Act $$ we would have thousands furloughed, as would every pax carrier.

To paraphrase your own question, "does anyone really believe that absent money from the feds, we WOULDN'T have tons of pilots on the street?"

Sorry but I read the newsletter and did not see anything foreshadowing any type of maximum training. This the the best line I found:

”we’re gearing up to serve the pilots. Training capability will be the driver of our recovery: We are removing training constraints where we can.”

The rest just mentions reorganization of fleet chiefs and the new flap extension procedure.

Delta cannot even staff the planes now with no furloughs..If they had furloughed, I can't even imagine how many more flights would have canceled due to no crew. So yes, I think the threat of a furlough was all for show. They were trying to get concessions knowing no furloughs were really coming.

Still expecting an AE in the 3-400 pilot range in the next 3 weeks. Some training opens up in March and I would imagine they want some Affected pilots trained up by summer.
