I didn't actually take offence to your post until I reached those two last lines. When browsing through these forums, you will see pretty much all airlines being criticized for the most ludicrous reasons, at times. SN is no stranger to that.
Therefore, employees of those airlines are bound to walk around on their toes whenever their employer comes up. Again, SN employees are no strangers to that. I don't think we can be blamed for that attitude. Any employee who wouldn't take offence when the airline (s)he works for is under attack, has a serious problem on the level of loyalty and self-respect.
Of course people are different, therefore people will react in different ways.
At any rate, what it boils down to, is that there is no doubt in my mind that all SN employees are very well aware that the aviation industry is a business and that its aim is to bring in money. Undoubtedly there are a number of reasons as to why that goal isn't being reached with the highest success possible, to put it mildly.
Some of us are willing to discuss these things in public - some of us are not. Nevertheless, all of us are working on a better future. It's nice to get some support in our endeavours. Especially from fellow countrymen, if you catch my drift.
I refer to my former statement on the manifest lack of chauvinism, common to Belgian citizens, to illustrate my unfortunately not being entirely surprised at BelugaBoy's statement. That doesn't take away much of the dismay and disillusion, though.
