We are probably averaging about 50 new hires a month, with a 15% washout is ~43 new pilots on line per month. So that's a net of about 13 new pilots a month. Which makes sense if you look at ISL 16-01 and 17-01, we are about 150 pilots larger.

We seem to like about 12 pilots per aircraft, but let's just assume 10 to make the math easier and be optimistic. We can take 1.3 airplanes per month, or about 15 per year. We have already made that commitment on the 200, so unless we start swapping out old 200s for 700s/E175s, I don't see how we take a lot of new jets this year beyond what is already planned. You could also make the argument that if we announced 175s with a west coast presence then our recruiting would increase dramatically.
Co-basing of New York #1, Dual Qual of CRJ's #2, Finally West Coast bases with E-175 #3... in order of increasing ability of staffing.

But, I don't see them cutting off Gojetz and taking 700s from them because that would just make too much sense. Possibly expressjet instead? Who knows, we'd love to take our PQ 900s back if they don't want them.

The thing I definitely don't believe is the E jets. Who are they gonna come from? Compass? I guess it's possible and we open a west coast base but highly unlikely. That's a huge undertaking opening West Coast operations while also operating a brand new aircraft type at the same time. Seems like too big of a bite that RG wouldn't want to chew. We also don't want to end up with a bunch of frames we can't staff, that will hurt our performance by stretching resources thin and therefore be on daddy's bad side. Only way I see that plane here is with a Compass merger, and we all know we don't want that.
Date of Hire no fences and you got yourself a deal for a merger

If it's your wedding, they will likely help you out for that weekend... if you are simply IN someone else's wedding, you'll probably need to hold it off or be lucky enough to find someone to trade with to get it off.. Unfortunately the world of regional schedules doesn't have much care for life's needs.

Don't commute to ATL, that sounds like a nightmare from RDU

If I were a better, I'd bet on mid April, but end of March hasn't been officially ruled out that I have heard of.

ATL commuting is a nightmare for Richard Anderson... anyone with priority below him has it worse...(that's anyone not named Ed Bastion.) and where from has little matter.
