    Questions for the long time XJT folks

    With the elimination of DAL flying and the consolidation of numerous offices at A-Tech and the XJT Hangar being heavily used by DAL Maintenance.

    It sure looks like a scaling down before moving. If XJT Corporate leaves ATL. Would it come to IAH or St. George

    I doubt it will get moved but if it moves anywhere my guess would be Houston. Having said that, I cant imagine it being moved anywhere with the future of the company so unstable to the point that theres a possibility of not even being around in the not to distant future to even need a operations building. This company has to get some kind of long term plan out to the employees that's visible to the front line workers and give them some kind of desire to stay and or attract new employees to XJT. The lack of long term plans and still handing out aircraft to other companies like it's candy, is destroying any kind of desire and will for the employees to want to stay around. Company communications must improve regarding the future of this place. The quotes "just because there hasn't been anything announced doesnt mean there isn't any progress" will no longer cut it. There must be concrete plans laid out and made visible. For any management personnel at A-tech reading this, get out of that building and ride the jump seat for a week and you'll know what I mean. You live in a bubble that is so isolated that you don't hear the questions being asked or concerns being brought up. The disconnect between management and the front line employee is as large as I've ever seen here at XJT.

    Why move folks to just move again. This is a "right-sizing" maneuver to minimize office space requirements. To move them to IAH and use empty space in the training center will be next. There's no reason to send anyone to SGU unless we get one-list.

    I agree with flybeaver in post #2 they could say somehing. I see no reason to move anything to Houston. They can dispatch planes from anywhere.

    Air Wisconsin’s headquarters remained in Appleton the whole time they were primarily East Coast based and PSA’s is still in Dayton. Hell, Skywest’s is in St. George. Headquarter locations don’t matter.

    Republic doesn’t have any 50-seat aircraft and United is maxed out on large RJs.

    Why bother moving OCC to IAH? It makes much more sense to move it to SGU. Inc. can finally leverage some benefits of acquiring XJT by combining many functions into the existing HQ at SGU. It's much more than OCC-many administrative functions are duplicated and could be combined. From the pilot/union side it makes zero difference. If it makes Inc happy and saves them a few dollars, fine, maybe they will finally admit we are making them money.

    None of those companies were acquired by a competitor.

    The point is that a company can have its headquarters anywhere. It doesn’t have to be a location that the company operates out of.

    My bet is it will remain in atl and will not move. Too much money to waste just to move the building.

    It’s also not just moving a building. It’s also the people who work there. I’m sure this company will exhaust all efforts to keep those ATL people employed locally. Historically, the ATL folks have been favored heavily.

    Why pay to relocate people before laying them off when the airline is folded?

    Right. SGU/SureJet has ALWAYS been at the forefront as well as possess the foresight to make good financial decisions.

    I agree. This is a slow wind down operation. Perhaps some small remenant will remain to keep the possibility of whipsaw open should the Chosen Ones unionize.

    The reason they are not saying anything, "better communication" as some say they desire, is that they hope for an orderly draw down, not a panic that leaves United frustrated with St.George.

    The CPP carrot dangle has helped to stem part of that exodus.

    Wouldn’t it be some **** to see that if there was a large scale drawdown, hose holding “acceptance” we’re now PWOP’d?
