Well, as expected, Virgin America was sold to Alaska Airlines on Monday. What this means to me is that I'll be leaving before too long, since Alaska doesn't allow the flexible schedule that has enabled me to work in San Francisco every other week, and then spend a week off at home in Palm Springs with Jack and Moochie.

But I'm not quitting just yet. I'll wait and see if there's a buyout, and/or a retirement option. And if it turns out that Alaska really is a great place to work, I'll see about possibly transferring to the Palm Springs station.

Ugh... sorry that things are changing, but I'm still hopeful that things will work out for the better! Big hugs!

You're wise to not make any sudden moves. It could end up being better.

I worked with Alaska professionally during my years as a Hotelier. With all the airline people I have dealt with over the years Alaska folks were the nicest of the bunch. So see what they offer you. Working in PS full time would be ideal and you would have the world's shortest commute. So keep your options open pal. I'm hopeful that everything works out for you in the best way possible.

Hope there's a silver lining somewhere
