Not so sure as a lot of the opposition resigned.
... But after nothing in Greece is a sure thing.
How was he wrong about the cars?
I've read his comments about problems with the company and
Its business plan and valuation, but how was he wrong about
Thats the picture RJET would like you to paint. That way you'll ignore the union busting tactics.
Management are thugs at RJET.
You seem to be missing the obvious point that RJET can't fill the seats.
Few want to work for such a scummy company. Current management must be beheaded as
An offering to the pilot group.
BTW, you can read the contract at myrjetcontract (dot) com
It basically tells the pilot group to take it, or get whatever happens during restructuring.
Even if this contract is voted in, this will never be a happy pilot group, or a company I
want to work for.
Hopefully, you'll have a few RJET pilots chime in, as I'm a pilot, but not RJET.
I think the vote will be close, as proposed contract does address several issues.
Pay is increased somewhat, junior manning protection, better trip and duty rigs, etc.
Nothing earth shattering, company not giving away all that much, but its hoping that by basically going
direct to a very tired pilot group it will get approved. Very well may happen since you have a lot of newer
pilots in the company that will be tempted to approve it, not seeing the long term implications.
Many senior pilots are going to be more than a little upset with managements tactics and the take it or else
It is amazing it is coming down to this, as I fail to see how having a disgruntled pilot group is serving the company well, at a time when they cant even fill the seats.
It will be very interesting to see how this vote goes., as there is still a lot of anger within the pilot group.
I am glad I do not work for RJET.
Acording to IEEE Spectrum, Tesla Motors began beta testing of Autopilot with a group of selected Model S owners.
There is no official details on what exactly is being tested nor on how many customers were selected. Beta testers probably signed some kind of a non-disclosure agreement and they are tight-lipped for now.
What we now is that implemented features are more driver assistance systems, rather than autonomous drive.
“Tomorrow, Tesla is to begin uploading the latest version of its Autopilot software to a select group of of its Model S electric cars. The owners of these vehicles will act as beta testers, putting their cars through wringers never imagined by the company’s pros. If all goes well, a wider roll out will come later in the year.”
“Tesla’s beta testers will indeed be drivers, not merely passengers, because Autopilot 7.0 represents only a small step up from the previous package of driver assistance systems. It will manage lane-keeping, mind the gap to the car in front and behind, and handle much of the braking and acceleration. But testers will still have to oversee all operations and register their alertness—if only for legal purposes—by hitting the turn signal indicator every so often.”
At the Shanghai Auto Show in April, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer alluded to a possible all-electric version of the Rapide four-door and last week he confirmed it to Automotive News. Speaking at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Palmer said the car would arrive in two years, boast 800 horsepower and a 200-mile range, and feature all-wheel drive to help tame all those ponies. Palmer also said an electric version of the DBX crossover would follow.
For Aston Martin, as well as other high-end automakers, stricter emissions and fuel economy standards may make electric propulsion a fact of life. Palmer explained: “If you want to keep making V-12 engines, then you’ve got to do something at the opposite end of the spectrum.”
Lower the price, offer incentives and we'll make it up with volume!
... or come up with another reason for another secondary offering
which we'll say we dont need, but still do.
