Default Loss of USPS contract…

Our uphill battle for a new contract just got substantially steeper with the news today.

And they said during the earnings call a deal was imminent not in months but a few weeks or days.

When is the excess bid?

oh I get it. They let go of the contract out of spite for the pilots. Every choice they make at the company is out of spite for the pilots. This place is in the garbage. Take it to the landfill.

Biggest case yet of turning down business because the margin is too low. Seems like we will keep cutting until we have one 777 from NRT to MEM with P1 freight.

What’s funny is they will trip over a nickel to fire 15,000 long-term employees but they claim they “walked away” from a $2.3 billion a year revenue stream?

My guess is the USPS walked away from them because we do not have labor peace, and an election year is upon us. At any rate, say goodbye to domestic day flying and 4A2C just became a bit more of a real possibility.

more like the BOD is not as desirable as the Government would like. All those people in Government affair's couldn't quite get the pigskin into the end zone. We need more JD's to get back on the tit.

All of this shock happened when we walked away from Amazon in '19. That upcoming Town Hall is going to be REAL fun with questions.
