Today''s Aviation Daily reported that ACA is planning its first pilot furloughs in ten years. The brief article says that 52 pilots will be furloughed on April 3 and another 34 on May 1. I''m assuming that these furloughs are due to cutbacks on ACA''s UA* flying, but I suppose it could involve ACA''s DL* flying as well. Does anyone have the explanation for why this is happening, such as grounding the J41s, the impact of the Iraqi War, or too many pilots hired in anticipation of CRJ deliveries that didn''t happen?
