I feel like it takes talent to burn it down this quickly….
Or just desire for it to happen

We will run ultra hot through the summer and have an ops meltdown to rival the Valentine’s Day Massacre.

Battaglia gets fired by the end of the year because of this.

DOJ lawsuit regarding the NEA is settled late this year/early 2023.

Growth is chopped massively, solves operational and staffing issues. Joanna looks like a hero, saves her job, leads us into a merger.

C’est la fin.

So, at least something good will come of it…

Wait, I thought all of our operational issues are because we have a higher percentage of our flights concentrated in the northeast than everyone else?

No it’s because all the pilots and flight attendants all call at the same time so the wait times are longer, then that turns into even more operational issues.

The lady in charge of crew services says we’re gonna hire more and go from 2 people in crew services at a time to 3. Problem solved.

Joanna’s memo explaining this weekend’s IROP (our 10th IROP of the year, so far…) sounds kinda familiar.

“Summer 2021 was a complete bloodbath but it’s not our fault. Plus, now we know how to fix it in time for the Holidays… hire more people.”

“The Holidays were a complete bloodbath but it’s not our fault. Plus, now we know how to fix it in time for Spring Break… hire more people.”

“Spring Break was a complete bloodbath but it’s not our fault. Plus, now we know how to fix it in time for the Summer… hire more people.”

My confidence level is very high that our management will take the necessary steps to make this summer run smoothly.

Going from 2 to 3 is a 50% increase. So we can expect wait times to improve by a similar margin… going from 3 hours to 2 hours. Problem solved.

Our "D- Weekend Management Team" has new operating hours" Thurs 0900 to Tues 2100.

I'd fly on Wednesday...not this Wednesday. It's going to take several, several days to get our customers to their destinations.

- Can our union have a vote of "No Confidence" (with respect to our Management) when the "YES" voters win tomorrow?
