Layoffs are never a walk in the park, there's no doubt about it. But hey, once the initial shock wears off and you find a better job, you might actually end up thanking them for the wake-up call. It's like a slap in the face that jolts you into finding a brighter future.

Yes the Funeral Home Mr As------r Jones will buy ya'll and transform to a fa-t-cloud.
Hopefully some airline will buy us.
I was laid off from Sabre a couple of years ago (the Corona layoffs). It was not fun of course, so hang in there, I hope/think things will get better for you impacted this time. I took the opportunity to study for a couple of years, and I am now in my first job in my "new career". I had some great times with Sabre, but I at the same time did not enjoy a lot of the behaviour/politics. So, it has been great to learn new skills, and I hope my new job will work out well. There is a life outside of Sabre, and it has been inspiring to throw myself into something new! I have also discovered that a lot of the skills from previous jobs are very relatable and applicable when looking for work in other companies and segments too!
Focus should now be on the brighter future ahead for all of us now that we're free from the sinking Sabre ship. There is truly goodness ahead of us now that we can think without the cloud of doom/gloom imposed by Sabre leadership.
More good news is that those of us laid off have severance. Those still remaining during the challenging days ahead are taking the chance that they 'may' receive a final paycheck. Bankruptcy or a sudden shut down is a real risk on a day-to-day basis under questionable leadership who have clearly demonstrated a severe lack of professionalism and leadership while they pursue greed and self-enrichment.
somehow i doubt that it'll get better for sabre any time soon
