When you park 65+ airplanes its going to happen. No surprise there. We parked 30 and furloughed 350, so if they are parking at least double that so 700 isnt out of the question. I dont know if I would say 1000 furloughs though unless something else happens and they park more than 65 airplanes. I would venture a guess at 800. That is if they dont offer any kind of early out(if they even can while in BK), LOA's, etc... like we did.
I hope we are setting up a preferential interview deal with them.
dont worry guys, that pilot shortage is just around the corner!
Disclaimers: are stupid. This is the internet, not a courtroom. You are not as important as you think you are. If something I write on here actually causes an investigation, it wasn't me typing at the time, my account was hacked.

Oh and no earth shattering spoiler here, the FAA is completely aware of the situation over there. Hence recent fines and probably more than a bit part player in the holding groups decision to shut that sh1t down !!!
I can't comment on the quality of EWR, but a lot of Colgan's mnx was outsourced to podunk outfits on overnight stopovers. (Kind of like us in MX ! )
It is true that it can be a pain in the *** down there due to having to make multiple phone calls back to the states, trying to get the info translated, etc..., but the actual quality of the work and the mechanic going above and beyond what I thought was going to happen always impressed me.
