Better go before the end of next month. In September we're getting this generations version of the fall of Saigon.

I give it six months…call me an optimist…

We’ve had air strikes this week in Afghanistan. They were to destroy US equipment the Taliban already took from the Afghan Army. You are an optimist.

I suspect that additional air strikes will delay the inevitable past at least 9/11/21. Taliban marching into Kabul on that date might not be a look that this administration wants.

Now, back to more gateways and growth. Do we need a bunch more jets and crews to cover these routes, is the Z already adequately staffed, or does the MD need to cover it?

Ha, not likely. From what I’ve seen lately we are broken in Asia. Not enough crews, not enough jets, we are just drowning over here.

Hopefully when the deliveries stop hiring doesn’t slow down. We can’t continue to run this lean.

Hell, you won’t do layovers in HKG because of COVID protocols that were in place there. Thanks for the laughs Pillow Biter
Wow! Wound a little tight aren’t we superman!!
