I was talking with a friend yesterday that works at American. He was telling me that if United files for bankruptcy that American would follow suit and file also. His feelings were if United and American file that they could try and break the unions and get their operating costs down to a point that the carriers would be profitable again.
After a horrible year like we have had in the airline industry with carriers losing hundreds of millions of dollars, do you think that this would be the way to go ?? And if UA and AA do file, do you think DL, NW, CO and others would follow along ??
I don't want to start uproar about unions with this posting but I would like to hear what do you think.
