You know, they used to say "Jonny Unitas had hair that you could set your watch by." It is starting to seem that americas' second largest carrier is trying to mimmic this but instead of hair it is job actions by its employees that are the steady.

With its most recent labor action it seems that AA pilots are so loyal that they are willing to sink the airline to gurantee job security? does that make sence? let me read that again. Nope still does'nt sound right. You think that AA is could be headed to a similiar fate as Eastern?

Sure they are in exellent financial shape, and they have with the exception of a lacking presence in the west the best Hubs of any U.S. carrier but if strikes and the like continue people will just walk away.Then where will AA flyers be? layedoff, starting a new carrier out of newark? what? I cant imagine that the mistrust can be so strong. PAX are getting fedup.

Oh I think it will be a while before a major airline will have to shut down by labor disputes and lack of profits.

I'm sure that's what a lot of people though about Eastern as well...

I recently got transferred to dfw from ord. My company used to fly me around on United almost exclusively. United's service has declined, in my eyes, ever since the "employee owners" took over. Note the very big anti-United website. I fly American a lot know and while the service is on par with other US carriers, bad, I don't see them disappearing like Eastern did. Any time you have union labor you will have labor disputes. Remember when Saturn the US auto maker spin-pff came out, they prided themselves on thier excellent relations with the UAW. But they were not immune to the GM strike last year. There will always be labor problems. AA is not unique with having labor problems. AA is growing, not slowly being widdled away at like Eastern was. Cheers.
