    Nobody should be surprised about this. Doors are closing, time to vacate the premises.

    I asked about it last month in EWR.

    In short, it was less 50 hours of CA open time remaining at the close of smartpref for June. Their response was that given the choice, scheduling will always take more line holders over more open time.

    Fine with me. If I’m going to be on reserve for life, might as well work like it’s supposed to. You know, reserves flying for sick pilots and to help when wx f’s everything up (and not to staff trips that should be in another line or two, or six).

    Ok folks, time to re-focus on the facts, . . .
    Oil is back to its bullish ways as it creeps closer to $75 bbl.
    Even a dotard like Oscar can see the financial train coming for 50 seat jets with above average operating costs !
    Witness the gargantuan sucking sound as inc. releases its unprofitable positions to the non union side and the competition.
    It won’t be long now :cool:
    TFAYD !!!

    I think she was joking. Instead of “focusing on the facts”, she posted that article as a further distraction. That’s the only thing I can imagine was the intent.

    Yeah, I’m not attacking her, just couldn’t put the story in contex.
    I guess if ucal refleets with some narrow bodies they could add more 70’s. Unlikely in the current environment but seemingly the norm with dal and aa. As usual, ucal has its head up its, . . . well we all know :rolleyes:

    It’s not natrowbodies that changes the 76-seat limit, it’s small narrowbodies such as the E195 and CS-300. They can order all the 737s and A320s they want and it doesn’t change the 70/76-seat max.
