"He has a point and a right to say whats true."
Yes, he has a right to his opinion, as does anyone, but "handbook policies" aside, there is an unwritten code/ethic that you simply do not dis your company in public. Right or wrong (and I personally can understand his
anger re Milton's strategy/decisions, and part of me can understand why he blew his top) you do NOT bite the hand that issues you your paycheque or the paycheques of your colleagues. You do NOT send out negative messages that could, and will compromise your company's standing, and subsequent load & yeild factors. I wouldn't fret too much, as the public is known to have rather short memories.
"Its pretty sad they pay a singer big bucks to come out, when essentually they dont have the money, not to mention this crazy idea of putting extremely expensive IFE on all planes."
It is hard for the laid off AC
employees, and those remaining, who have sacrificed a lot (which truly had to be done, as painful as it was for them, in order for the over bloated AC
to successfully restructure) to watch the Celine spectacle. It was hard for me to watch, and I don't even work for AC
. Milton really thought that the employees would be given a huge morale boost with Ms. Quebec/Vegas belting out her nauseating tunes. Give me a break. Yeah, really makes you feel better when you check your direct deposit once a month and see it up to 21% less (net).
Look, when it comes down to it, the general flying public could truly not give a damn about livery colours and seat colours. Nor do they really choose an airline based on a glitzy ad campaign (and why they selected Celine, God only knows). They want (as many of us know, it's so obvious) competitive pricing, frequency, reliability, an excellent mileage program with a good and fair redeeming factor, and above all, strong, positive customer service from the carrier employees. As for IFE's, believe it or not, especially on the Asian routes, they could very well prove to be a sound investment. Many of our corporate clients prefer CX
to Asia from Canada for this very reason. Perhaps AC
should have added the IFE's on selected routes.
Don't count on it. Chances are this particular employee is unionized. Good luck to AC
management if they want to weed him out.
