    But did they not offer it to flex first? I am thinking that the older folks who are considering retirement would have jumped at the money. Weren't there 40 on that side? And potentially 40 more on the FO side? Now the company said that they did not want to sign cause they may have 60 take it by April! (They have signed it now).

    My point is the ratio will most likely stay the same.

    If they opened up the VSP again, I'm sure more than 80 would bail.

    And the company spins it like they are going out of their way to help the pilots. This is nothing more than attempt to thin the herd of higher paid pilots. Replacing them with new hires(as they are claiming at the job fair) was their plan all along. Do they really think they will find enough talent to replace these experienced pilots?

    Let's talk numbers. The latest info I have is mid 50s taking VSP. Equal numbers from Flex and Options. I also have to give cudos to JW for his latest text message. It was nice of him to admit that the Union's VSP victory is creating opportunities for us pilots.
    ... so I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

    But , once again while they claim victory, they are appealing the judges ruling. Is this for not negotiating in good faith? A big public announcement on one subject while the slimy weasel does something else when he thinks no one is paying attention. BUSTED again.

    Because most aren't paying attention and uncle knows it. For a quite a sizeable portion, scamagement can say the sky is pink and these guys will just ***************ume Kenn was speaking metaphorically from the veranda in Cabo because it's easier.

    Regardless of how overworked we get and how unsafe this place gets they still won't bother. Right now my greatest stress is wondering if today will be the day that we cross the threshold into tragedy. Right now with the way we are being run it's a matter of when not if. If you don't agree, then you are part of the problem and a likely candidate for the incident.

    That letter to owners was the best thing the Union ever could have done. After all, they are our real bosses and they deserve to know what's going on.

    Just for the record, has Flex had any accidents? I'm not talking about hangar rash, I'm talking about going off the end (or the side) of the runway? Or a dinged wingtip?

    No accidents/incidents with injuries but we've had just 2 I can recall in my decade plus. A 45 ran off in CGF prior to the acquisition and a 604 dinged a tip not long after the acquisition. I really wouldn't even count the 604 since there were mulitple factors involved that don't really count toward the a ssessment your question is leading to.

    Quite frankly, I'm amazed with and humbled by the caliber of skill and professionalism here because I honestly believe with lesser pilots the accidents would be piling up the way we are being run to the brink of broke and exhausted every flipping day.

    At the same time, as awesome as a Jimmy Johnson or a Dale Earnhardt are, I don't want them driving my granddaughter in bumper car if they're not really fit for duty let alone in a rusty racecar hurtling around Daytona at 200+ mph, capiche?

    I'm glad you see where Flex is headed. More people need to wake up.
