He is planning to resign after the planned emerging from bankruptcy - early 07 (for now).Obviously, Delta's CEO does not want to loose his job.
Yeah, in order to return to profitability they want to cut less yielding flights, but reducing the capacity by 10% will be a nice break - everyone is working too hard now. The average line is up 12 hours from 2004. Since the concessionary contracts besides just the pay rates our work rules suffered a tremendous hit. Days are long with short overnights. So the 10% reduction of capacity by itself probably will not trigger furloughs.Patriot:
US Air says that they can optimize combined network and will fly the same number of passengers with 10% less capacity. That includes pilots, I guess.
Also, I cannot imagine the mess with seniority – they are still arguing between former AWA and USAir pilots. How are they going to deal with seniority?
