I messed up

Why didn't I accept the package in July? That's the thing I've been thinking about nonstop for the past several months. I was stupid enough to think the pandemic scare would be done in a few months and we'd be able to go back to normal. The biggest... —  read more

Breathing a sigh of relief

I'll be honest, I consider myself very fortunate that the company is going to rescind its plans to cut jobs and wages thanks to a bailout. I was afraid of the impact layoffs would have on my family. I have some savings but not enough to not be... —  read more

Some good news?

Not sure this'll be long term, but it'll help. Airlines are now preparing to call back the tens of thousands of workers they let go in October. Congress approved government assistance to cover carriers’ payroll through the end of... —  read more

4 month countdown

My heart goes out to all the employees who will be impacted by this. I had hoped we would be spared but I guess it had to happen once. Please prepare yourselves financially, emotionally and mentally. They gave us enough time to make sure this isn't... —  read more

A big mess

Does anyone have any clue where the 20% percent over staffing is? It seems more you ask less any of the high leaders “know”. I’d love to know how they’ll be doing a massive layoff like this with a master seniority list. It’s going to be a mess. —  read more

Don't be naive!

Do you honestly think that if your pay gets cut it will ever go back to its original amount? Honestly? What ELT is trying to do now has nothing to do with preventing layoffs and everything to do with finding a way to cut pay of people who they can't... —  read more

Customer is not always right!

Can I get laid off? Please? I'm really getting tired of having to pretend even the rudest and verbally abusive customers are right when they obviously are not! And I am definitely over being lectured by my manager in front of said customers if I... —  read more

No layoffs ever

I do not think we ever did layoffs here at SWA? I see a message below by a guy who claims to be a mechanic, but I am not sure if we worked for us or for a company that we outsourced work to?
