Do you understand what NAI is or the potential threat it poses to the airline piloting profession?

NAI has been operating since 2014, or for the better part of 4 years. Yet, U.S. carriers continue to hire in droves... and will continue for the foreseeable future... especially with the retirements on the horizon.

As a side... I’ve yet to read published articles Op Eds, or view, CNN, FOX, MSNBC, or CNBC for that matter pilots, picketing their airlines, or appearing on the “Hill” giving testimony relating to perceived potential damage to their careers, with the outsourcing flights to foreign operators by their own airlines.

The big 3 out source jobs, with other carriers, in the name of code sharing. Share the study by ALPA showing the number of jobs lost, given away, or deprived from this Code Sharing business model.

Mose consumers choose a service provider that will provide the best service for the money paid. NAI will continue to provide low fares until the day investors say “Enough is Enough!”. Consumers will continue to fly NAI until the day other service providers pony up with adequate service commensurate with the fares paid.

So… how about brainstorm with sales, and management as to how your carrier can draw the market share away from NAI. Plead your case to management as to why outsourcing jobs, in the name of code sharing, is detrimental to the growth, moral, and overall pride.

After all, whose job is safe with cheaper labor available from both sides of the pond... even with NAI in the mix? Who knows... a NAI/DAL or AA, or even UAL may be coming to an airport near you.

No worries mate. NAI's lack of feed on either side of the pond will be its downfall even with its completely unfair 'flags of convenience' business model.

Dunno, they get feed by easyJet (same as westjet by the way) and of course their own shorthaul flights. No idea about the other side, although i read somewhere that they do something with jetblue about codesharing.

Wasn’t that the mantra by the naysayers in 2014?

By the way, Norwegian Air Argentina has been approved to operate Buenos Aires-Perth route, applying for Singapore rights.

True, but I am not sure how efficient that is especially outside of Scandinavia, Luton and Gatwick. Their long-haul point to point and secondary airport model is questionable to say the least and they are taking on network carriers with efficient hubs at the most desirable airports. Time will tell, but their financial losses seem to be indicative of serious problems.

Norwegians own short haul operation is the third largest low cost carrier in Europe. Combined with EasyJet, Europe's second largest LCC, it is fair to say that they have plenty of feed on the European side. If you look at the focus cities in the US (e.g. FLL, EWR, OAK, IAH, DEN, SEA) it is not hard to see that they are aligning themselves with JB, Spirit, SW,AK, Frontier, et. al.
