Good article. Thanks for sharing.

B&B hate bad PR.

Brad obviously doesn't remember how "successful" Ray Vecci was at trying the same tactic.

Not sure Alaska will get that coveted 11th JD Power award. Seems they have spent all of Alaska's "special sauce", accumulated over decades. I'm sure they have an exit strategy for themselves. But for the rank and file...

This article hit some key points except for some of the comments made by a so called “senior captain “ regarding pilots slowing down the operation. If anything, this management is 100% at fault for every single cluster and debacle of the operation. Every employee’s performance is a direct result of company’s action. Lack of tools to do the job, a hostile work environment, and greedy & unneccesary cost cutting measures created by Angle Lake was-is-will be the perfect special sauce for this melt down. A vote of no confidence is in order.

Vote of no confidence should absolutely be conducted.

Here is a perfect example of why you shouldn’t come work for Alaska. Not only is the operation an utter disaster, you have not one, but two Alaska pilots telling the press that an illegal slowdown is taking place (which it’s not). Who would want to work with people who are so monumentally stupid? Now we will be dragged into federal court and slapped with an injunction of some sort because of these idiots. It’s like the police coming to tell you your wife was found dead and instead of saying, “What? How? Why!?!” You say, “Good! I hated that ***** and I’m glad she’s dead!” God help this place.

With the employee meetings coming up I hope everyone posting anonymously on APC will show up to a meeting to speak with management directly.

Face to face is a far better way to communicate.
