Lads, the only flying job with a garanteed future until the end of the Great Oil War is the Airforce.

Some say there are too many people driving cars tomorrow. Others suggest there are just too many people.

To be sure: humans, like the rat, when starving and cornered will cease working together and start to fight.

Jaba,

Don't know where you heard that. Hovering around 86% fleet wide, and I can't get on an EK flight to Sydney until well after Christmas (we are probably flying Etihad to get home!!).

I'd say a management stooge trying sell the LCC mentality.

"Come on board, it's the way of the future" Yeah right!!

Mstr Caution. I have to agree. Who is this new fly by night fwit?. If you had called yourself Warren 1 maybe that would have more credibility. Perhaps the redundancies could happen on a "squirrel cage" system.

Squirrel Cage system... hahahaha... CLASSIC!

Wouldn't happen to be taking the piss would you?

Just remembers lads, 4.6% growth in Asia over the last month. Its not all doom and gloom.... and anyways, I wonder how many flight crew Ek need to crew their 58 wide bodies over the next 5 years.

We are still "jolly green giants" walking the earth.

In my opinion GD's chicken little approach to fuel costs, international & LCC competition, bird flu, terrorism etc etc etc need be acknowledged but not feared.

Consider the Mainline Cadet program.

It's a good indicator as to a "health check" of mainline operations. Always has & always will.

Over the last 30 years, mainline has had the cadet program running whenever forecasted times where good & the cadet program comes to a holt when a downtown occurs or is forecasted.

Considering the roadshows about to occur around the country & the forecasted numbers required, I'd say that "health check" is looking good for mainline.

At present the only limitation on continued mainline recruitment is the ability to get the numbers through the training system.

I can think of another which will probably outlast the airforce...
