But hey there's 4 190 and 1 320 slot in MCO! so I'll likely be #6 in that line. hahaha

We are a SHRINKING airline. We have less pilots now than we did a month ago!

agree 100%.

are we running that way on purpose over the long term, because its cheaper (and guys VDA/RSA enough to make it work)? Or is the company running us lean until contract negotiations are complete and we have displacement language, etc and they can displace the 190 JFK CA's?

I doubt it's about displacement language. The contract is going to require so many new pilots, IF they were planning for a new contract (they are NOT) they would be aggressively hiring. Not SHRINKING the seniority list just before the summer heavy flying season.

Not to mention displacement language is only an email away, THIS IS JETBLUE!

Finally, with enough openings elsewhere in the system and shrinking block hours E90 NYC guys will bid off voluntarily. The ones that don't can ALL be designated reserve and DH into position each week until they hate life enough to bid off or want to make more than guarantee.

This is severe intentional understaffing (bad planning) or evidence of a shrinking airline (we are) or a transactional event.

Hello sir, is your airline for sale?
- Yes, yes it is.
Would I be getting a good deal?
-Yes, we do 1000 + flights a day with less than 3500 pilots.
Wow, you must be the best, most efficient airline out there?
- Well, we have culture too.
Would I run into problems buying your airline with a union on property?
- Lucky for you, our pilots are in negotiations right now. Buy us now and control your destiny.

I'm confused, how are we taking 15 airplanes with 28 new captains for the year? Is it because they are going to be taking 320's out of service for cabin refresh?
