Your views represent what is wrong with UA
executives and management. Even when faced with concrete evidence you still find a way to come up with excuses. To say that UA
is no where as much of a mess as it's made out to be is completely ridiculous. UA
performance was worst this quarter than it was in 2013 and the unfortunate thing is there was no existential reason for it. UA
can't blame the harsh winter because AA
/US and DL
for faced the same conditions. Even if we eliminate DL
and just focus on AA
, they canceled 33,000 flights UA
canceled 35,000 flights but somehow even with that record number of cancelations AA
recorded a profit of $480 million while UA
recorded a a loss of $489 million. But yet despite all of the evidence you are still defending UA
claiming that this is an over reaction.
Have you even read the comments employees have left on Flying Together? Have you taken time today to listen to front line employees, flight attendants, pilots and other coworkers they all are talking about this record loss and I have yet to hear one single employee say this is an over reaction. I am hearing employees ask what is our problem. I'm hearing coworkers say UA
is heading in the wrong direction. After reading what was posted on Flying Together what I saw was more of the same excuses and tired rhetoric, but when I read the comments section I saw employees asking for a detailed plan from executives asking how UA
will turn things around. And some of the comments look strikingly similar to the comments left back in January when UA
posted its 4Q
earnings and financials for the 2013. Back in January employees asking for a detailed plan and UA
executives still have not provided anything and it is evident that UA
executives don't know how to turn UA
around when you look at 1Q results for 2014. Why don't you tell us here on a.netters better yet why don't you tell the employees of UA
what is working tell us how we are succeeding, please by all mean point out the silver lining in UA
's abysmal performance. Because from where I'm sitting all I see is failure and a company without a plan for success and whose leaders are trying to convince employees that everything is ok.
The time for change is now if not now when? When UA
enters bankruptcy again because that is where it seems like UA
could be headed and who knows perhaps that has been the plan all along.

In some ways ahead and in some ways not so much...DL slapped a lot of lipstick onto a pig and made it look good they have only in the past year or so actually started turning their on board product structurally into a good one. UA is skipping the lipstick part...ooops.
is skipping a lot of parts and overall UA
is missing a viable workable plan for success. Say what you want but the truth is customers must prefer lipstick on a pig because DL
is winning in almost every category while UA
