Exclamation I'm warned, I'm in the morning report

Got a good laugh at this when going on the company earlier. I guess being ALL IN CAPS means the morning report was extended to discuss this MAJOR EVENT.

Or you could work at a company like Atlas where some pilots are supposed to hold an Indianan visa depending on your crew base. Only problem is the company says they need your passport for 2 weeks to get the visa. We're only guaranteed 13 days off a month. Do the math.

I guess they could've just let you get removed with out pay too. Instead, someone has your back.

Or have a second passport to enable getting the visa on one, while using the other...which is why the second passport is issued.

They should just take it over to the office in Bloomington. I heard it a quick turn around there.
