    Southwest to hire 8,000 new hires in 2023

    Here E, here's a little more detailed on the hiring. All airlines are having the same hiring problems with Pilots and even Mechanics currently. There are shortages on Pilot and Mechanic hiring in the industry, we all know this, or should by now. As I read it, SWA is getting ready for the...

    Southwest to hire 8,000 new hires in 2023

    Always good to hear of adding employees. This is on top of the 10,000 hired after pandemic travel picking up in 2021 and 2022...

    Frontier one of the 6 airlines fined and forced to refund

    E. Help me a bit more to understand. You are claiming that these refunds were paid out in 2020 and 2021. I have trouble seeing that as the consumers complaints didn't come until late in 2021 of at least November, per this article where they list the 90 consumers complaints were filed within...

    50lbs of marijuana found on luggage carousel after flight

    First question is, how did this get past TSA? Second point, smells a little fishy, could it be with some sort of insider help?? I sure hope not, but how does that much pot in 2 suitcases get missed??? Makes you go Hmmmmm. Also, what stood out was a man from Cali picking up the 2 bags in...

    DOJ's case against JetBlue and AA NEA starts next week

    After closing arguments on Fri., it's now in the Judges hands to review it all. Should hear something in a few weeks hopefully. It does appear the DOJ put on a good case, but we shall see how the Judge decides to rule in the end. Will he reject it or will he approve it? Or maybe yet force...

    Delta F/A's Arrested on Drug Trafficking Charges

    A couple of real winners here. These two yahoo's thought they were safe from TSA searches but forgot they could be checked on a random pull by TSA. These two will have plenty of fish to choose from where they are going. You just gotta love the stupidity of these morons...

    American Pilots Reject Contract offer with raises

    Wondering how this might affect the current talks with AA's Pilots at the main airliner. Interesting timing. https://finance.yahoo.com/m/d8fcf1bb-4d6c-3c4c-b774-700da2a18d15/american-airlines%27-regional.html?utm_source=sy&utm_medium=nsyp&utm_campaign=yh&yptr=yahoo

    Frontier one of the 6 airlines fined and forced to refund

    Now... if that $222M is incremental i.e. refunds they denied and now have to pay out, that's going to be a different tune. That's how I read it and that's how they presented it. The only part I read that they already paid was the 92 million I believe and yes also the voluntary give...

    Frontier one of the 6 airlines fined and forced to refund

    Refunding 222 million and fines of over 2.2 million. Think about that when their last reported funds were 674 million at end of 3rd Q 2022 of cash and cash equivalent. That is over 33% of funds on hand. Bad timing after coming away from the attempt to purchase Spirit Airlines. Hope they...

    American Pilots Reject Contract offer with raises

    I believe all the airlines are facing the same. Inflation being one of the biggest as well as retention/retainment issues. When SWA said they would hire up to 10,000 employees from mid 2021-2022 they thought all positions would get filled rather quickly as usually, they get very overwhelmed...

    JetBlue Jumps In With premium Offer For Spirit

    If that turnover rate has anything to do with pay and or benefits, maybe if and when they get brought up to JetBlue's pay and bennies, that might slow it down a bit? Just thinking out loud. Southwest did, but also still cleaning up some.

    American Pilots Reject Contract offer with raises

    Ahhh, yes, the "Delta" move right back at Delta. Delta always has liked to be the first airline to throw wages at their employees (in any of the work groups) just before all the other airlines are nego raises or fixing to start so that they were first, then all the other airlines have a goal to...

    JetBlue Jumps In With premium Offer For Spirit

    Spirit just keeps doing what it does best. Bringing out all the negative news about itself time and time again. Now the question is; Is JB prepared to fix the Spirit half of the company and bring them up to JetBlue's level of customer service and rankings? Not too sure they will be able to...

    Pulled up the weekly update from NMB and saw where the representational snowball affect is in works at Sun Country Airlines. Their Mechanics very quickly brought in AMFA to represent their Mechanics and Related and then the Fleet Service Employees thought they should get representation as well...
