So throughout all of these rounds of cut the cash, dodge the ball, and shoot the sh@t.. how much has upper management cut from their purses? how many repeatitive or non-essential management positions have been cut or furloughed?

I'm a uair flight attendant 15 years, and they, (management) can kiss my ass. I'd rather see the company go under than set a precedence and have all the major airlines pay f/a's LLC pay rates. What management is essentially doing is creating a "C" scale. UAir has given away too much money to executives for too long and we, (labor) pay.

AirbusDriver, you say you are a f/a yet in your profile yet it says you are a pilot. Something is fishy here. And if you are a f/a, WTF are you thinking. If all of US's employees had your attitude, US would already be gone. It is your responsibility as an employee to adjust to the economy, and like it or not, US needs all the help it can get. So learn from the US pilots, and start leading your company.

I agree with AirbusDriver, Too long have airlines run themselves into the ground and then turned to the helpless workforce to bail them out. It's the same crap. Ask the pilots for cuts, ask the FAs for cuts, ask for less sick time, less break time less benefits. I mean hell we are setting labor back years! I agree I would rather see them go under. Which is close at hand believe me. If you can't exist and stay loyal to your workers, who happen to be the people that keep the operation running then you don't deserve to be flying!

NIKV agrees with an Anti-US Airways statement...there is a shocker. The statement itself made by supposedly someone who is either a U flight attendant or a pilot in Paris can't be taken seriously.
It is a good sign the F/As are ready to talk...things need to be done in the next 30 to 60 days if U is to survive without massive cutbacks. They want to become a hybrid HP/JBLU airline...we'll see what happens.
