That lady made a very very bad investment. She might have done better by putting her money in a large pile on the ground and then taking a match to it.

She rocks. More power to her. It's the shareholders who need to get companies to change their practices, not the government. If more people took real interest in these things and exercised their rights, companies would be more responsive to their customers and shareholders.

...sounds like a meeting between the two US Airways pilot groups.

It's a shame this airline seems to be plagued with so much turmoil.

What a dirty day we have in the US airline industry fights in boardrooms at US Airways and fights with employees between Tilton and employees at United Airlines. It is very interesting that both of the outbursts happened on the same day. Heaven help the American flying public if this is a sign to come of things to expect moving forward.

I am still shaking my head that US Airways has gone from the America West turnaround to what seems to be total chaos. I have to wonder if Doug Parker is sitting in Tempe, or wherever he is at the moment and thinking.. "Where did we go wrong"? "What can we do to right the challenges plaguing the airline"?. I hope for the best, but I am expecting the worst. Reality with the US airlines lately has dealt a very, very harsh hand.

Read the article about her. She goes to board meetings for all industries and forces shareholder issues on them. Not just airlines.

She is very wealthy, very persistent, and is now effective.

She's a very small investor in the business, actually. But she has very large beefs with the way it is run.

Wealthy people are what the airlines need as investors. At current airlines like US Airways should be coddling any investor and not driving them away. I would be pissed as well. It appears that US Airways to be honest is an airline without a solid identity. They are a quasi-LCC for domestic. They are a thrifty semi-full service airline over the Atlantic. They apply for a route authority they have no aircraft for. They have employee unions that bickers left and right.

If US Airways has a direction or order, I would hate to see what disorder is like..

Indeed it does start to get down and into the thick of things..

Best part of the entire meeting is when she spills on how Tilton called her before he met with Parker to garner her opinion. She says Tilton wants out but her response was that Parker works well with his airline but has no experience running a full service airline. She though it would be best that Tilton pick someone else and make Parker No. 2.

While she certainly is eccentric and outspoken she raises good points and frequently presses for the same resolutions that she eventually garners enough support.

Dr. Licht is just a plain wacko at this point. All hr cares about is that he no longer gets paper stock certificates. No doubt so he can put them in his memorabilia case/sex dungeon. At one time he had a more keen financial sense but now he has clearly lost the few marbles he had.


He reminds me of Elliott Offen (sp) from the Howard Stern Show.

Second best moment is hearing the two of them argue for mic time. It is a near copy of the infamous Bill O'Reilly / Al Franken battle at book week.

Haha... this is one of the nuttiest recordings I have ever heard. Mr. Light and Mrs Davis are raising hell.


"I own more stock than you!" "Sit down!"

"SIT DOWN!!!!!"

It's like a prank on top of a joke, based on a lie.

Wow! How about fist fights and brawls and make it PPV? Maybe it'll help the company's bottom line and stock prices, sorry (for the silliness), but I can't help making sarcasms.

Overall, this doesn't surprise me, I've heard of tensions in the break rooms between employees (screaming, fighting) that some employees chose to take breaks in the locker rooms, talk about boost of morale.

Perhaps they can film the next stockholders meeting and show it on the flights that have movies. Maybe they can make more money that way. So much for booking a NYC-PIT flight on these fellows.

I like when the Evelyn lady goes up to Doug and says " Doug, are you afraid of me?" to which he replies " Yes, a little"

The whole thing made me want to buy a few shares of US just so i could go to the meeting next year.

While the lady might seem a little out there, she is certainly close to some people in high places, esp if Glen Tilton is calling her on the phone...

That's how it should be. It's time the CEOs are afraid of individual stockholders again, rather than only doing the bidding of institutional investors and investment bankers.

Evelyn Davis is a crackpot.

She has small holdings in many companies and plays the same game at hundreds (literally) of shareholder meetings every year.

Because the poor thing has no life...

Well when you are 79 years old theres not much else to do.... supposedly she's considered a pioneer for shareholder rights, which given the amount of shareholders that have gotten royally screwed in aviation, good for her, esp at her age

Oh, Evelyn.

She is a "shareholders rights activist" - putting it nicely - that makes the rounds going from company to company all around the country raising hell and making often-incoherent background noise at shareholders meetings.

I remember when she came to the AMR stockholders meeting a few years back. Arpey's secretary just shuck her head and said to me before the meeting, "Oh, Ms. Davis is here." That was "fun." Arpey just let her go on and on and sort-of laughed - along with everyone else.

Someone shouting loudly from the back:

"SHUUUUTTTT UPPPP!!!!"

10:30 and for the next minute, these comments:

"I own more stock than you, NOW SIT down!"

"SAND Irtysh-Avia (Kazakhstan)">IT DOWN!"

"I GAVE YOU 2 MINUTES, I CLOCKED AND Irtysh-Avia (Kazakhstan)">IT, YOU WENT OVER AND Irtysh-Avia (Kazakhstan)">IT, NOW SIT DOWN!!"

"I TOLD YOU, NOW STOP AND SIT DOWN!!"

"SAND Irtysh-Avia (Kazakhstan)">IT HER DOWN... NOW!!!!!! I DONT WANT TO SAY ANOTHER WORD!!!"

Mr Light, Sit Down or we will have -you- removed.

"HAVE -HER- REMOVED!"

Was this on TV, if so, what station?
