May should be interesting. We have cancelled a bunch of flights and the planes are still empty. Hub to hub flights have 100 open seats every day. My commute was frequent rj flights that were always full, now they have been cut in half and still have flights operating with bookings less than 10 passengers. You would think that the company would be announcing deeper cuts and many more SRLís.

i suspect this is about not pi$$ing off DC until any deal is done. Did you notice that we did not cut service from any city? You donít have a choice if hubs to fly into but everyone but Mammoth still has UA service. This way no senator can b!itch about losing service in their state.

i expect changes going forward.

I finished CQMV last week. Been fine since then and will fly my first trip after vacation next week.

Those air planes, with at least a few passengers wonít fly themselves. But, letís give Boeing and mgt. a reason to advance Single pilot ops, to combat anyone ever catching something from the second pilot. BTW, are you refusing to fly..ya know in that cockpit that 2 other people just occupied and was visited by a cleaner?

Bravo! Glad you feel fine a week later and can preach the truth that this ainít no big deal. But would you mind doing us a solid? Please can you head on into a NYC emergency room and do a bit of a meet and greet in your uniform to let everyone know this isnít a big deal and all is well for you health wise? The doctors would probably really appreciate your view on this whole thing as well. Ya know, give it too um straight and assure them this too shall pass because you survived an MV.

Outcome-based thinking, that got us in so much trouble decades ago. Remember all the TEM stuff we teach now, about threat-based thinking and determining strategies to mitigate a threat?

Outcome based with invulnerability and resignation hazardous attitudes: The virus only kills other people, not me. We're all going to get it anyway.
