    United To Hire More Pilots

    Do you know if this is "increased business", or did United have a bunch of mandatory (age-related) retirements that had to be replaced? Just about all airlines have bunches of age-related vacancies that need to be dealt with.

    United's stance if you test positive for COVID abroad

    Look on the bright side. Note the first 5 words in the United email....."Travelers arriving in the U.S." Sounds like if you get stranded, you will already be back in the States.

    CPAC

    This is so much BS, it's hard to know where to start. Point 1: The Japanese guy is from nowhere near Venus. A waitress at Denny's here in Dallas told me he's from Uranus. She aught to know. She's a Qanon.

    Donald Trump is no longer part of SAG-AFTRA

    Maybe. Maybe not. If the occupied rooms become unoccupied because of Donald trying to make permanent residence for himself, but no one else they may have to kick out Donald in order to pay the bills. You know rich folks don't like being played for a sucker, and they have enough money to...

    Stock Offering

    Remember that Mr. Warren Buffett, probably the most respected stock investor in the world, had been investing in the market for years before he ever bought airline stock. IIRC, he kept it less than a year before selling it at a loss. So, before following in the tracks of one of the richest men...

    Question for Flight Crew

    It's not conversation that the company would recommend be heard from employees in such situations. There are documented cases of passengers (wrongly) interpreting such comments as frivolous.

    M&A Talks And Rumors Start Their Rounds

    Think about how many jobs would be lost if Frontier and SWA got hitched up. I don't think any airline wants to make a move (nor would it be desired by the politicians) that would require massive number posted on Page 1 of employees losing their jobs. If SWA had moved a year ago (thereby...

    New early out offer coming?

    Bad post due to trying to make MS Edge and an editing field work with no mouse. Just remember, you are dealing with a man who told all of you (shortly after I retired 3 y ears ago that "American will never lose money again." (and we are laying off employees to prove that point.
