That's interesting news on MSG. Good choice for DY I guess. B6 network planning has some interesting/strange adjustments since he left.
Did not understand why they let him go. I think some other members of the management team should’ve been turned over before MSG
Upper management realized his talents exceeded their own. They became threatened. He was the single - most beloved executive in the B6 C - suite, admired by every labor group and should have been promoted long before "others" were.
That last quote wins....
I’m as a loyal B6 flier as they come, I’ve flown almost exclusively B6 and B6 partners for the last 12 years. I’ve got the Plus card, I’ve got a bunch of employee friends at B6 from pilots/FA’s to ramp/tech and other areas. I never heard one bad thing about MSG-he was loved by all of them as a good guy (and local to BOS-from the South Shore as well) He was always down to earth from what I could tell-willing to banter with pax/B6 fans (hockey fans too) on Twitter.
Clearly he outshined people-well one person from what I’ve heard particularly:
I’ve never heard ONE GOOD WORD about her from the rip-other than she’s a woman in a high ranking commercial aviation position and has been featured as such many times (RGN comes to mind-they’ve got some excellent pieces on women in aviation)
Some of the things I’ve heard about her to date
-No idea how to run an airline
-Couldn’t help get us on time if her life depended on it
-Cares only about herself and nobody else.
-Would/will stab RH in the back as soon as she can
-Will prob be the “fall person” for some screw up a-la Neeleman
-MULTIPLE expletive laced tirades which I won’t repeat here
-Will be the reason we get hostilely taken over
Sounds like B6 shouldn’t have let MSG get away-but there could be a bigger plan at play here with him going to Norwegian and B6 partnering with them. That’s my hope as a B6 loyalist-that the #B6BringBackMarty campaign will begin in earnest soon. Moxy may enter the picture at some point here as well. The employees and customers need him (or someone like him) back in the “B-Suite” sooner rather than later. I’m holding out hope it won’t be Oscar Munoz (aka the oft rumored UA merger) as much as I admire Oscar as well.
