Holy thread resurrection. But in all seriousness, regardless of utility in predicting the future, the original simple question was never answered. I think a rough WAG seems to be somewhere between 10-15% for most recent-ish events

Soon after, United parked several B747-400s.

Then came 2008-09. All pilots had been recalled and UA had even hires some nubes. Glenn Tilton wanted to right size the airline for a CO merger. He parked the entire B737-300/500 fleet (94 aircraft ) and another 6 B747-400s. This led to the furlough of yet another 1400+.

Right size. United union doent have a good history. To Shrink for a merger makes no sense unless you can't make profit or the gov tells you to. Lots of people love that koolaid flavor.

Long haul international carriers will furlough over 20 percent. The last thing to come back is international travel. Especially when this thing will be still around in some form until next year and we at best case will just be coming out of a recession by then.

I'm sure it had nothing to do with CO telling UA to pound sand when United first approached them with merger talks. United needed a dance partner and basically did what CO wanted to get the deal done. Tilton said that the 737's weren't fuel efficient, yet the new United operated CO's -500 fleet for nearly a decade.

Funny how as soon as United's Guppy fleet was parked and over 1400 pilots furloughed that a merger was announced.

I have noticed tons of new memberships popping up during the coronavirus shutdown. I don’t if it’s just random people wanting to screw around out of boredom, regular members who make burner accounts to troll, or what. Strange stuff.
