I double checked because I had seen something recently in an article. It was erroneous and you are correct. It was referring to older info. I should have been more diligent. As far as your statement about taking 'enjoyment" in workers being laid off, if you were referring to me, you are way off base. Many of my fellow workers lives were thrown into turmoil because of layoffs and I, least of all, take joy in seeing people and their families hurt. Got it?
An announcement of a 600 employee layoff was made on 2/21/2014, that would be last year.
No announcement has been made this year that I am aware of.
Try to be a bit more responsible with what your post.
I know you have an axe to grid with the company but putting up information that is false is not a good idea.
FYI When those employment adjustments do take place it because those are production jobs being moved out of the state.
I don't see how anyone can find enjoyment in a worker, union or salary, being let go.

In spite of strong dollar, they beat on earnings - that's a good sign. Dollar seems to be topping out, so going forward declining dollar will boost earnings and revenues. Analyst upgrades are coming!
I think UTX did pretty darn good... Their FX hit was significantly lower than DD... but they still didn't raise their full year targets... so maybe there will still be potential damage in the near term future. This was a good showing Walt ... when are you going to learn? ... oh yeah, you think you can jump in and out, and do better?!?
Horizon/Alaska Air flies the 79 and 99 seat Dehavilland-8 props out of Portland and Seattle to smaller towns throughout the Pacific Northwest and they scoot right along. In 45 minutes I am in Portland from Boise vs. 7 hours of driving.
And cheap fares too !!
Any thoughts of this going into earnings? I am thinking of going long into earnings but the Short Interest from the end of March looks unusually high.

Being curious, I checked on most fuel efficient airliners. Data shows that the Lockheed 1049 (Super Constellation) and the DC-7 , both with propellers, are the most efficient for passenger miles per gallon of fuel, almost twice as good as today's best. They, of course, didn't have the speed or range of today's planes. I have flown the Super Constellation, very comfortable...Kid
Both the 380 and the 747 are dinosaurs it seems. I've yet to fly on a 787, but people I know who have said "nice plane" ... I've flown 747 & 380, and while the 380 is nice, unless you're in the front, the mob infront of you upon landing is too big for my taste.
600 more. That is a wonderful indication of how great a future they have. Layoffs have been going on now for over 7 years and things are only getting worse. Oh sure, they are signing contracts and they have HUGE backlogs. Can you take backlogs to the bank? It is on time and on budget deliveries they need to accomplish and they are failing miserably at that.
Big losses sustained on UTX, steer clear. Try the guys over at Ultimate Stock Alerts (search Google for them), they helped me find a better play

As of June 2014,not ONE new A380 has been ordered.
It's kind of like going out of style. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Airbus_A380_orders_and_deliveries
