22 Gross Aircraft in 2023.

What the next will be is the question.

Everyone will need a chair after summer 2023, IMO, and probably for a long time!

Does anything in this post make sense to anyone? Is this like a cryptogram?

You know during the labor dispute I could have made Bank in DCA I got called almost every day. Never did it. I go to BUS fo and Iím flying with this captain who was like man I made so much money over the summer last year. I was like we were in a labor dispute. He was like I know how do you think I made so much. That was over buffalo going to LA with a massive headwind. That was a long long flight.

Everyone will need a chair is a musical chairs reference. Hiring will stop. People will be stuck where they are.

This is my interpretation. lol

We all know that not picking up trips during a dispute has no effect on negotiations. I'll three engine taxi with the best of them, but I'd be remiss if anyone is going to tell me how to make money and support my family during a labor dispute, or any other time for that matter.

Now flame away keyboard commandos!

We do? That is news to me.

As for the rest well Iím not super optimistic about a future CBA with views like that.

Your opinion to justify your actions.

Anyway, you said "or any other time for that matter". What if we went on a strike? What would you do?

That’s hilarious, the company has no idea if you three engine fly the aircraft across the country. Unless another pilot calls a chief on you they never will know. However, If we all band together and don’t VDA, RSA, extend or pick up straight pay to the point that flights cancel then we have made a mark. We have some time before we get there again but I don’t thinks it’s far off.
