If they are parking the "classics" and moving the 777s to another certificate, they're done. How viable can they be with 2 or 3 -400s?

The Bridging Doc thing can be as simple as just knowing the cost of doing so, vs actually puling the trigger on the deal

If Southern's BK is anything like the legacies I wouldn't be suprised to see them use this to scare employees into pay/bennie cuts :(

About as viable as Evergreen is right now...

The DOD teet has dried up. Companies like World/NAA, EZ, Ryan and Southern are hit the hardest because It's easy to just sit there and watch the money come in. These companies need to innovate to survive.

We just got word that SA corporate HQ's is being re-located to CVG this coming Spring and hopefully exiting bankruptcy at that time (...we'll see how that goes). If anyone knows any former Astar, Comair, or other dispatchers still in the CVG area, please pass the word along as they are hiring in CVG at this time. It would be good to get some people back to work.

What is their pay like? A regional in the mid teens? Or low cargo pay in the low 20's. And with all the talk of them loosing planes, what is the possibility they even survive? Also, with them being a 135 for DHL who is DHL flag in the states?
