How many pilots are at Air Midwest and how many were furloughed?
By the way, do you guys allow 135 jumpseaters? Would it help that I am a furloghed Skyway pilot (an Air Midwest codeshare)? I'm looking to go from Great Bend, KS to Kansas City. I can't imagine they are very full are they? You can PM me if you like.
317 from the mesa air group were furloughed. there are approx 210 from amw, the rest from mesa. I used to fly the GBD-MCI run and at the most we had 10 passengers ever. Before 9/11 135 jumpseaters were captains descretion. It usually was no problem. Now i dunno, i have been furloughed too, so i havent had any experience with that.
Best I can say is wear a tie and ask to see the capt.
