I'm not sure how new you are to the forums, but it all flows in cycles.
UAL is the whipping boy today, tomorrow it'll be American. Everyone loves Delta today, but then it'll be Continental tomorrow (next week).
Every airline gets scrutiny, but just because it's UAL and you happen to work for them doesn't mean it's jealousy. I fly for Delta and I have absolutely no jealousy for United and can't muster a reason why I or anyone else would.
Any airline undergoing the pains of labor strife, no matter who it is, is going to get scrutinized. If Northwest took a lot of heat on the boards last summer, why should UAL be immune from it this summer?
I usually browse the boards looking for questions that I can answer about flying. I've seen my share of distasteful posts about other airlines, including Delta. I don't take it personal. I've got a lot of problems with the airlines (DAL and UAL included) that I think should be fixed also.
Being a passenger is sometimes a fairly miserable experience for a lot of people. Long lines, flight delays and food that seems straight out of a "Swanson's Hungry Man" frozen TV-dinner (my apologies to any European readers who don't know what that is). This forum is a place for a lot of people to vent their frustrations. More power to them, and keep it coming!
Don't take it personal. And besides, when passengers REALLY like you, they bring you NY-style cheesecakes, two for the cabin crew, one for the cockpit crew!
