Back to work!

Hey dude,

( was be02plt in a past life) I spoke with some former JIers and I guess Comair has hired a bunch of y'all. ACA cancelled a couple of class dates so I am waiting to start with EJA in Jan. Are they giving you guys a short course or is it the whole deal? How long did the furlough from Comair last?

It still looks as if Midway will start up again so don't plan on getting vacation, sick time or severance pay. Just bend over and take one for the team.

Have fun with the RJ and say hi to fellow Midway guys and gals.

I have a crashpad in CVG. Must be a non-smoker, commuter pilot (this is a pilot who lives out of his base), neat and respectful of others. Please send me a private message. Thanks.

JI

JI is the abbreviation for Midway. It originated from Jet Express in Chicago I believe, Midway bought their operating certificate and moved the operation to RDU. It stuck ever since...... Shafted

ps. do you still have that crashpad available????

Yeah, I've been meaning to call you. Just a suggestion, please use codes that most people know. I've been involved in aviation for over twenty years, and I have never heard of ji, and some of the other ones people use. I guess that is unless you only want people who worked there to know what you're talking about. Just a suggestion.

The JI designation is just a leftover from the days that Midway was known as JET EXPRESS in Chicago. When the airline was brought to RDU, only the airline name changed but not the JI designation.

I'm headed to CVG Jan 2nd and will be needing a crashpad and an airport car. Please send me a message if you can help.

Shafted, Comair only pays for 7 days in the hotel?

Thanks.

CVG Hotel

ILS2DH,

We were the last class that Comair provided 10 days of hotel accommodations. Subsequent classes are now only given 7 days of hotel due to all the cost cutting measures.....
