All depends on the outcome of this virus. If it goes away before the summer then life will be back to normal and hiring will be robust again. If it becomes a full blown pandemic, then forget the furloughs. Airlines will start shutting down or severely downsizing. I hope its the first scenario. My airline overseas has already announced plans to stop hiring and a reduction in pilots. They will offer an unpaid COLA soon before furloughs begin.

Is it early? They now say the illness is more widespread than we knew, just people don't know they have it. This means the survival rate is way higher than even the 98% or 99.5% (for under 50 crowd) that we know it to be. Which means, the clickbait fever coronavirus-19 is way worse than the illness. European corrections are because Europe's economy.

Depends, if your company has large retirement numbers (like AA) and you have some seniority you may be ok. If youre at a company that has small retirement numbers (like Alaska) and you are somewhat junior, Id expect to be furloughed and hope for the best.

Oh and we have another 167 aircraft yet to be delivered. All but 50 of those are brand new Airbus/Boeing wide body aircraft...Funny how things can change on a dime. LOL

You mean a company with zero exposure to Asia? Really furloughs.... Jesus some people are blowing this so far out of proportion.

I saw this passing around the internet. Dr Drew takes on coronavirus and I think the crew on set was in shock over the idea it's all media hype

Dr. Drew talks about the flu

then someone with some authority and that can be trusted needs to get on TV and tell people to calm down when the time comes. I don’t think it’s now because the airport seems as full as ever for a late February day but in a couple weeks with spring break happening that could change.
