Sure sounds like it. That issue with the huffer doesn't surprise me. You can call the dispatcher and have them notify your destination and half the time the station is unaware of the need for a huffer when you arriveMany times the huffer is inop! Then the station tries to borrow one from a competing carrier. Fun times. And it all falls in management's lap. Our major partners don't seem to be having the same issues as us, at least not to the same extent. And then treating crews like crap and violating the contract doesn't help things either. Hey but we got that " cut your hair" deal going on! ( I know, for a good cause).

You actually read a.net? Sad.

Unfortunately those guys can be good about giving you information that management is keeping secret.

I remember when Colgan lost it's US Airways flying, a.net guys told us before management. Pretty bad when on a conference call someone says "how come every one of our flights outta LGA in a few months shows a Piedmont Dash and not a Saab?"

They pretty much had to come clean.

Read that piece (SHV?) about mgt.'s visit and it apparently was newsworthy that employees there would like picnics, more things like that! How about fixing the frigging airline first!

That's not an option. In the mean time, don't take any more Jepp revisions than you need, and donate some hair or something useful.

Imploded, is the correct word. Almost all of our daily operational issues stem from poor decision making at the middle level and the organizational issues we face are the result of five years of penny-pinching catching up with us.

Good money spent wisely will always out-perform stepping over dollars to save dimes, which is what we do.

Half the CRJ's are flying with deferred FMS's the other half deferred water systems. The incompetence is at an all time high.

Its all the General's fault. He gleefully rejoices in the major carriers shopping for the lowest cost, forcing draconian cuts in maintenance and pay to the regionals while he (or she) reaps the benefits of profit sharing payouts on the backs of us who do the donkey work!

On a different topic, I should say our thoughts right now should be with those on board Malaysian 370 from KUL to PEK tonight. The outlook does not appear to be good at this time.
Very sad.

Brad Holt must be having the time of his life, at the moment. Clearly, nothing is being done to manage the company from the top. No one appears to be at the helm. From what I understand, it's as though he shows up, closes the door, and then goes home at 5 or a bit before. And yet, the pay checks keep on coming...............I want that job!

If that's true, get the chinstrap cinched down tight, the door is closed because he is plotting with SGU. If he is plotting with SGU, it isn't about changing the Mini Indy date or number of corners. BH may not have a clue as to how to run an effective corporation, that's because he doesn't have to, SGU pulls the strings from the deck of the houseboat, the S.S. Minnow on the lake. The SKYW side isn't doing much better either, it's like watching a one legged duck trying to get to VR. The EMB program and 117 has SGU tied up in knots, so anything more than one desk or cubicle away becomes difficult if not impossible. Brad hasn't kept his seniority number on the Skywest pilots list for nothing....

One sentence you say he is, then the next if he is. You a little confused?

Mucho!
Guys take a deep breath! It is all going to be OK. What is going on is that the 117 rules have brought added operational difficuly to the table for ALL airlines. The regionals are seeing more side effect due to all that and staffing issues combined. No need to panic (yet)! Sit tight and have a cold one once a while..
