Comair Pilot Union Issues Statement on Airline Restructuring Plans

September 8, 2010 - Capt. Matt Lamparter, chairman of the Comair unit of Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), today issued a statement regarding the company’s plans to effectively halve the airline by 2012. On Wednesday, September 1, Comair management informed the union that the company plans to park 49 of the 93 aircraft on the property, which would lead to substantial cuts in staffing.

“Obviously, we are deeply disappointed by the company’s plans to restructure the airline. However, our commitment has been and remains to our pilots and to protecting our contract, our jobs, and our futures.”
