I never got any letter from Reid, nor did any of the other furloughs that I keep in touch with. We all got our bonuses. I'm at the same address where I've always been, and the bonus check arrived with no problem to said location.

Ditto.

The check found me.

I guess Fred just doesn't like me because I'm cuter than he is.

A furloughed guy from Flex was at the training center and met one of the Flex instructors. He had mentioned of words flying around for about 30 recalls by the end of summer. It sounds like a lot in just a few months so I am not sure how much of that I believe, but is there any kind of good news coming from the line????

Does anyone know of a rough number of how many of the 85 furloughed guys, if any, have other flying jobs? I think that I have heard of a few, but then again, I don't know that many of the furloughed ones.

I meet two of them that are flying a 300 in the northeast . they both are laidoff flex pilots they got lucky and both got a job on the same 300 they like the job and may or may not go back if recalled . but they got some time to think about it . They both think it make take a year or so before they get a call back.

If they are not expecting a recall for another year, then I believe their recall rights would expire. I wonder what Flexjet would do then if they needed somr bodies to fill some seats?

I ran into a crew in the last week that confirmed that they too had heard the rumor of "a couple of dozen" recalls by fall.

One guestimated based on past experience that about half the pilots on the recall list would come back. Based on my conversations, I think it will be higher than that. While many have found other jobs, they don't match Flexjet in quality.

Just because the recall rights expire does not mean that Flex can't or won't rehire the 85 who already have the type ratings and know the system. It would be hard for anyone on the outside to compete with them. But it would provide the company flexibility when it comes to fleet management.

It will certainly be a while before the "help wanted" sign is out forthose who haven't worked there before.

the truth be told. the word is, no recalls or hiring till next year, which is a bunch of #@%$, they will continue to work us and keep uping the "yield". this is what happend when they layed off before. also there really isnt any "recall rights" because the people were technically fired. so they are going to have to re-interview when the time comes. pretty lame. with that said, remember that things can change overnight.
