Yes bumps for completely expected and pre-announced fleet drawdown are here. 8700-ish is the most senior for now, do the math. In a few months, it'll be all the way down to pilots with single digit line numbers. Everyone will be affected.

I'll bet GUM "magically" finds new markets after the last of the bumps and will be back to current levels this time next year. Anyone else think the company has counted how many guys have girlfriends/second families in Asia, and it's more than GUM can absorb!

I've noticed that there are no longer any of Fred's friends informing us that there will be no bumps and no displacements. Whats up with that?

When IAH 787 closes you'll probably get bumped.
