The news just keeps getting better. More furloughs at NWA announced today. In addition to the 63 for Feb flying, 35 more in April and 25 more in May for a grand total of 693. But hey...Pinacle grew its ASMs by 38% in 2002 and is hiring. Now NWA wants to fund the pilot retirement fund with Pinnacle stock, still won''t pay furloughed pilots their contracturally guaranteed furlough pay (force majeur still applies over a year after the fact), all the while they are laying off mainline pilots. If it wasn''t so sad, it would be funny.
