Excellent, Robert Crandall understands what the real issue is. He says the merger will fail if pilot seniority is not settled in advance. Recommends pilots work it out without arbitration. LOL
DOH and a fence protects everyone who does not expect a windfall.

I think Mr. Crandall is suggesting that some form of DOH protects the merger.

This thread/youtube link should be made a sticky.

When has American ever merged by DOH? Why do you believe they want to now and how did you take away from the video Crandall is inferring DOH?

I didn't read ANYTHING in his message regarding DOH or anything else. He was in my opinion suggesting an AGREEMENT or METHOD to amicably combine the lists.
We would probably be smart to put the American, US Airways, America West and yes the Nic lists on the arbitrators desk and let them decide whether to use two or three lists in order to hash it all out according to McCaskill Bond (sp?) and the model of Delta and Northwest. (They don't hate each other). Take our lumps and restrictions and then go forward with our focus on making the biggest the best!

I'm not East. Nic does not affect me one way or the other, but I do think Bob is speaking to appease APA pilots in this message.

Few AA pilots are interested in what Bob thinks. He's still anti-labor and supported current management, whereas the pilots clearly don't. He believed LBFO I was a good deal. If the media wants to publish his opinions, so be it, but they have nothing to do with what AA pilots want, nor should his irrelevant advice have any weight.
