May you do as recommended above and pursue other avenues as a backup in the mean time to flying. 9-11 saw me doing construction for quite awhile and making more money than flying at the time. Iíve since used the education in that to line of work to take care of my own homes/rentals. As we are about to see flying is a luxury, not required for life. And 20 years later Iíd probably be making more in construction still.

OK, Greta.

Email out. 5% capacity cut. Considering more. Slowing hiring. Buckle up. Hope this is a quick blip. Donít have a great feeling though.

For real? 5% (temporary) cut in flying and we are furloughing? Yah def headed that way. Probably a good thing. We are flying around 70% capacity anyway cutting routes left and right. We are operating flights 12 hours late to get completion factor At 99.9% with 0 people on the plane.

I have no idea where this story is gonna go, just like you donít. This is the first step though and the virus really hasnít peaked in the United States yet.

Sure do! Canít wait for another oneÖ
A lot of it depends on the state. But essentially youíre paid a percentage of what you made per month.
Have to prove certain things. Show youíre trying to get a job etc etc.
