I do not think that unless some large fundamental changes take place, and soon, will the company survive. It cannot continue to operate the ways itís operating-period.

My hope is now that management is truly detached from the reality facing them, the FAA steps in and stops this madness. Itís an accident waiting to happen. The entire airline is strained and it has to stop.
Are you mainly speaking of the trans-con delays and cancelations due to weather and crew time outs? The A220 side needs TONS of work. On the 195, we need work on not delaying the first turn of the morning, which cascades into delaying the crew taking the plane out on a 4 leg day after. One delay affects 6 flights. We have to fix our first flight of the morning delays.

You literally made the same exact doom alarmist post back in January. It’s going to take a lot longer than 2 months for there to be stability. There’s only about 1 plane a month coming so the growth is totally doable. Meanwhile they’re trying to make changes to the A220 schedules and virtual bases. More pilots should be getting done with training soon to give relief. It’s a new airline, they’re still trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t.

Having a new airline function well is not rocket science. In fact with a small operation itís usually much easier to manage. JetBlue ran great from day one. They only started having operational issues when they were a large airline. Same for SWA.

Where do we start with this sentiment. Pandemic, mixed fleets due to initial AC availability, lack of pilots, delayed deliveries etc etc. Let’s compare apples to apples, if what you’re saying is even true that everything was peachy first year of operation at those places. A220 just started flying only months ago, less than a year.

It gets exponentially harder as the operation grows in size. Most of the issues you posted were known well in advance. Is management simply refusing to scale your operation to the available assets?

Iím took me about 2 months from the cjo to class and 3 months from the first interview. Little over 5 months to get typed. Itíll take about a month for ioe for me.

Is IOE typically from your base or another?
