Question How are things going out there, domestic ops?

All the FCIF's and news alerts, union updates seem to be addressing international issues. But things are getting dicey here at home, so I'm wondering what people are experiencing domestically. How are the loads? How is your domestic support? Are they doing anything differently that you can see? I'm wondering if soon we are going to be quarantined in our hotel rooms like some of the international pilots. Are you bringing a suitcase full of beef jerky, power bars, tylenol, lengthy novels just in case?

Spent last week doing a tour of America type line. Ops normal. Loads were on the heavy side.

Sounds like mostly normal, larger loads. Good to hear. Amazon just announced they want to hire 100K more people...wonder if we’ll start flying their freight again.
