  1. Up to 30% of their flights cancelled this weekend. Major news sources pushing it was because of pilots calling in sick and vaccination strikes. Sick call numbers published showing completely false and the flight cancellations broke down from Manning being below the required number to be able to handle any sort of weather or delay issues without causing huge rippling affects. No one fact checks anything anymore. Just push any news that fits their agenda and it’s annoying and doesn’t seem very reputable sources around anymore that are on TV.
  2. SWA - what a perfect example of how fast misinformation spreads and how quick people spread it to try to push their agenda. What a sad social media world we live in when this is our reality. Nobody wants the truth. They want confirmation bias.
  3. Oh cool so now we can argue Covid AND abortion in this thread. If you’ve made more than 2 posts in this thread suggest you stop wasting your time. The other side isn’t listening or changing their opinion.
  4. Will they use the last window to continue to send invites out until March or will they close it completely once they get the 120 and you have to reapply ? Is this the last round to go out ?
  5. The Air Force hasn’t implemented a stop loss and approved my separation. They’ve done good work with that and a huge positive !!
  6. Did the take rates for this year get published yet ? Or are they too embarrassed to release them?
  7. Anyone have any up to date Information on this ? Once you separate from active duty they ask if you plan to file a VA claim. How does that affect if you are transferring to the Reserves for a flying position ? Are you risking losing the flying job depending on what they claim? Should you just wait until leaving the Reserves ?
  8. If time is infinite then it doesn’t matter the odds because at some point it could happen. That opens up a whole list of other topics such as multi verses , simulations , etc. But to say oh the odds are so low so there must be a creator is confirmation bias. There are several ways it could have happened and the real answer most likely we can’t even fathom. Humans can’t understand 1,000 years. Try understanding a billion. Our brains are made for short term thoughts , ie a lifetime.
  9. Also looking for info on commuting. My #1 and 2 airline choices I would have to commute a state away. My number 3 has a hub in where I will be living. Anybody commuted long term with any advice ?
  10. You can apply for a separation 1 year from your ADSC being up and no later than 6 months prior to your separation date. You can ask for a date less than 6 months but you need additional documents and a waiver from what I could tell. If your ADSC is up it still goes to your commander but skips the wing CC and I think assignments. If you palace front you do the exact same thing but the recruiter should gen up a 1288 signed by your unit. Even if your CC says no, AFPC can still say yes. It’s just a recommendation.
  11. Says who ? They haven’t announced anything from what I’ve seen except rumors of a hiring board being put together.
  12. Gotcha. Isn’t active duty able to pin on after 4-5 years TIG or no ? For in the zone.
  13. I’m transferring to the Reserves soon. One of my friends in the Reserves said they aren’t able to meet the Lt Col board until 16 years in service where normally active duty is around 14 years. Is that true where I have to wait another 3-4 years assuming I have no break in service ?
  14. Plus profit sharing that 10-12 percent. Plus retirement contributions of 12-15%. Plus per diem. Plus premium time. It seems like a normal 4-5 year dude is making 200-250k from what I can tell.
  15. Thanks for sharing that. So the way I read it every 11F is eligible ? Will a recruiter or MPF be able to tell me how much and for what lengths ?
