Hello everyone at A.Net!  Big thumbs up  Big thumbs up

I was having a browse through the data base and happened to come across a interesting photo of how airlines save money!... It also shows that the employees at AA don't have any pride in the work they are doing!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

That's my 0.02c!  Big thumbs up

Enjoy!

Is that duct tape??

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.

This shows what you dont know EK413......you think AA employees dont take pride in there work? I think you need to do alittle home work. I know its alittle hard for you since your from Austrailia but ill tell you first hand. AA has ALOT of employees that take GREAT pride in there work. These guys bust there balls to get planes saftly in the air and back home safe. Its the 52 VP's at AA you should mention when you down rate AA not is hardworking (trying to put food on the table) employees that get pushed around from people like Don Carty.


Besides, all that picture shows is that the 757 flys REALLY fast....lol.

When I flew back to STL from thanksgiving break on AA 768 (the afternoon LAX-STL flight) the screen at the baggage claim at Lambert said "Trans Wolrd 768" and this was November '03...so TWA still shines through every once in a while. Kind of nice...

We are on the same boat Bobs89irocz! I work for AA OneWorld partner QF and we get kicked around by Geoff Dixon too! All we want is to bring home the bread & butter BUT Mr Dixon disagree with us on that one considering we earn peanuts when compared to what he earns which is oooh around $3 million a year (Wild Guess)!

Bobs89irocz what the HELL is TriJetFan1 going on about!

Cheers!

I love to hear these stories, please share some more, ever had an experince where you flew a AA flight or something, but u saw TWA somehow snuck in, to show there spirit? Only I can think of is when I flew AA DFW-MCO I had an ex-TWA, and the interior was still TWA! It had TWA stickers on the door and gallery and ovens and so it was very neat. Another was getting ready to board my flight to OKC, the gate agent who previously worked for TWA, said, "TWA Flight-", "whoops I mean American Airlines Flight...." My heart sunk... Sad I almost cried right then because i knew I would never hear that again!!(unless a gate agent messes it up like she did.. Big grin)

so..got anything where uv seen TWA sneak in a couple of times?

This sort of thing was seen all the time following the Northwest takeover of Republic. In their hasty attempt at obliterating all traces of Republic, Northwest did a shoddy job of obsuring the names and logos on some of the aircraft. Take for instance the following picture, the merger was completed only two months prior, and Herman's shadow is still visible on the tail.

No, that's paint that has chipped off.

It also shows that the employees at AA don't have any pride in the work they are doing!

And this shows how many ignorant people lurk this board!

Iflewrepublic AND Tekelberry and everyone at A.Net that's what my POST should of said!  Big thumbs up

P.S. I work in the industry & I know that it isn't the employees problem that the paint is coming off! I blame the airlines for cutting corners!

Shouldn't the TWA paint job have been removed and the AA decals placed on bare composite material?

They were probably trying to save money and get the aircraft turned around as quickly as possible. I know several 757's that have blue main gear areas because of the chipping paint. The composite sections will have to be repainted often.

Lately, several AA agents have been making disparaging remarks about the former TWA aircraft while boarding. Isn't it enough that 90% of the TWA employees are laid off?TC

P.S.--Spare me the comments about TWA would have been out of business... Considering the assets AA got(120 aircraft) it would have been preferable.

I flew AC on YVR-DFW on a 732. It was an ex CP crew, when they made the anncoument the lead F/A would say at the end.
