Has anyone heard anything new about UA's F/As actually implementing CHAOS strikes? The AFA website keeps telling F/As to be prepared, but that has been going on since the first week of July.
At some point, the union either has to conduct one or more strikes or negotiate a 401(k) plan with management, but it can't keep sabre rattling indefinitely.
If AFA really wanted to inflict some damage on UA, it would strike either flights going into and/or out of MSP, DTW, and MEM, or flights that have a lot of passengers that were rebooked from cancelled NW flights.

It's not clear how the AMFA strike will impact NWA. I have a ORD - PIT trip tomorrow on NW, I don't think there will be any problems. We'll see though - it did cross my mind when I bought my ticket today.
