re: Southwest Airlines has cancelled 69% of its flights so far today. - jacost7
The program that schedules the crew to aircraft, skysolver, crashed when the winter storm started canceling flights at the major hubs. It is 90s technology that has been showing signs of weakness for a while now with how big and complex our route system has become. Mini meltdowns have happened a few...

re: Southwest Airlines has cancelled 69% of its flights so far today. - jacost7
The CEO is relatively new. The blame is on Gary Kelly who stepped down this year. It also doesn’t help that the pilots and flight attendants have been under contract negotiations for 3 years. It was not a sick out but it is killing the culture that has always been there of the employees going above ...

re: Southwest Airlines has cancelled 69% of its flights so far today. - jacost7
“Rumor has it, it's the Pilots, flight crew and ramp agents that called for the sick out. They all need to be fired. You signed up for the job and agreed to the pay, don't use your customers as bargaining chips.” I’m a pilot for SWA, there was no sick out and I am as angry and embarrassed as ever...

re: The Atlantic says "Let's declare a Pandemic Amnesty" - jacost7
“The standard saying is that those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. But dwelling on the mistakes of history can lead to a repetitive doom loop as well. Let’s acknowledge that we made complicated choices in the face of deep uncertainty, and then try to work together to build back and move ...

re: Question about child custody and divorce - jacost7

re: Stupid brake tags - jacost7
That is because brake tags or inspection stickers are a state thing. Only state troopers get money from this program , so they are the only ones that will write you a ticket for it. Local cops do not receive any money from the program and therefore don’t care....

re: OT dads with small kids and a job that travels, how do you like it? - jacost7
I have been in a job that travels about 50% of the month. To be honest, I wouldn’t do it if the money was not right. I have 3 kids who, at this point, are use to it. The real reason and only reason I could do it is my wife. She is the glue. If she was not 100% good with it, I would leave the job. Al...

re: Question for aviation geeks, pilots, or ATC controllers - jacost7
There aren’t as many gates as a bigger airport and the gates are leased to individual airlines. Those airlines work the times for the gates so theoretically the gate is open when the next plane for that gate lands. They also run slots into the busy airports with ATC to not overwhelm the system....
