Interesting.....and brave of him to put his job on the line for their cause. I know many hate on American every chance they get, but I've flown them half a dozen times this month and each crew, both FAs and pilots were as wonderful, if not better, than the previous one. To the outside observer who knows nothing about AA's troubles, you'd never guess the employees were getting the shaft. All have been very professional, cordial and accommodating. I hope they get that mess turned around. They all deserve better.

Interesting considering that the management team that ran the airline off the runway is gone (well Arpey anyway) I am sure that most of his cronies have left the building too, so why pitch out the new guys just to get some more new guys? Because as we all know, even if they were successful and got them removed, they wouldn't go without a nice severance package.... I fail to see their objective..

"New guys" ?

Horton has been ruining American in a small way since 1985. He really hit his stride when he became the CFO 12 years ago. He's not the new guy.

I can see the new marketing strategy: instead of "bags fly free," it's "cats fly free."

They can whine all they want, the fact of the matter is that the BK Process is WILDLY skewered toward Creditors and thereby management. AA will go before a judge and do a simple show and tell between legacy carriers and VIOLA! Thanks for the try, but no judge is gonna admit that a Flight Attendant job is worth that much...not in this environment....

Especially if that judge wants to be re-elected or a seat on the Board of AA when he retires from the bench.
