Default UAL pilots. Learn from this, remember scope

In a couple years when you negotiate a new contract, remember the pending reductions in force of today and donít give up scope when Kirby demands it tomorrow. Hold ALPA accountable.

God speed.

Good luck to us all indeed, but I donít think this dip will change our collective resolve on scope, if anything just the opposite as we fight to keep more flying on the mainline. There was a question on the ops conference call today asking if grant money would flow through to UAX carriers and UAL may be planning expend some UA grant money on UAX to keep the network in tact.

If there are mainline furloughs, there are some restrictions on the number of seats (76 to 70) and youíve gotta know that will be bring more attention to scope, not less.

You probably heard this, but 50 seat RJs are NOT expected to part of the recovery scenario. Barring a full and fast economic bounce, the 50 seat jets are gone. Thatís paraphrased from Kirby.
