Default Envoy Information

Hey all,

I haven't seen a thread on Envoy since previous threads in regards to the TA vote. I just thought I'd start a new one about any news on the airline moving forward into the future, post TA. How are class sizes looking? Has there been any noticeable drop/increase in application submissions as a result of the TA? I know it might be too early to tell, but I thought I'd ask.

Happy Flying,

Alex

Zero and yes
Management says downsizing
Management says e175 going to someone else
Management says crj's will be leaving
Management says embraers will be parked
Management also says I get paid to much and don't work enough on my days off.

Sorry, just looking around and reading crap I don't have any skin in, but who in the hell is Envoy? Another cheap regional?

They have no choice- less applicants than attrition.
Hmmm. Where's the announcement?
Hmmm. Why announce a new base for them?
See #1.
The feeling is mutual, right?

I know you weren't trying to be funny but as a 16 year American Eagle guy that post cracked me up. If management has their way, yes we will be another cheap regional.

Educational moment of the day today was finding out Envoy means "I can't" in Finnish.

These are statements/threats that they have given multiple times trying to scare us into passing the TA. It's not speculation.

It means "management wants the pilots to make less so they can make more" in English....

In reality will not be any cheap regional. When they start to bidding for new TA's management will need to add the new pilots pay. We are all seeing game change with exception of a few one nobody else is taking concessions.

When are they scheduled to start taking deliveries of the E175s? They will have to show their hand eventually to get the program up and running at Envoy in time for the deliveries if they have just been bluffing this whole time, or no one else can staff the aircraft.
