Still waiting for more info on Moxy and their "innovative approaches" to pilot recruiting.

Can't believe Vallas is still alive.

An interview with Neeleman re Moxy. Notice what worries him the most about the startup. Not getting pilots but getting airplanes. I guess he's confident about his "innovative" approach to recruiting pilots:

"So what worries you the most?
Getting the planes."

Innovative:

1. We'll hire marginally qualified pilots and pay them only a tiny bit less than the lowest wage paid to pilots who are actually well qualified.
2. We'll hire qualified pilots away from other under-paying airlines by offering a truly competitive market-value wage.

Place your bets!

It's going to be interesting. JetBlue placing an order for the CS...errr...A220 to fly in house is a good sign, indicating that they're not interested in starting a "regional subsidiary". Moxy sounds a bit like Independence Air back in the day, hopefully better run, though.

soon enough the pendulum will swing, and the airlines will begin their traditional down swing "right-sizing", and this airline will be in the right position to pick up the small pieces...Neelman is no fool...
