We need Guam to Become the best United Virtual

I know this has been brought up a ton of times, but it should be done people want to see Guam as a hub because it will make us look even better. Also we need it so that it wil bring in more pilots.

I personally think we need to maintain our other hubs. We can barley keep our other hubs staff. Guam really does not add that much to our route IMO.

My thoughts exactly. Before we were to open Guam, is raster see a star alliance hub in someplace like Frankfurt. But even that I'm opposed to four the reasons I mentioned in my previous post.

Hi Blake,

I am sure at some point down the road the VA mgmt will look to add Guam, but right now I don't think its that high on the agenda.

I am not sure I understand why not having Guam as a hub is holding us back. We have a bunch of hubs and a good staff and pilots at each one. I have had a bunch of new pilots join Dulles recently, and none of them have come to my office asking why we don't have Guam on the hub listing.

regards,

Gary

Especially since total pilots are capped. If we increase the cap, we may be able to eventually look at another hub.

i have brought up Guam numerous times at staff meetings, but like we mentioned, there is not enough resources to manage it. we have staff openings, our training academy is in works, on top of that we have so many pilots who get inactive it would not make sense as of yet.

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few...or the one.
