All of you opining for a new CEO.....a new CEO that will “turn AA around” is again hilarious. The middle management swap is so deep that it will take a frontend loader of a CEO to do that. And a person like that won’t GAF about you, your families, or your feelings. You all that think that, don’t know the BOD at AA. You either are gonna get a yes man (to the BOD like Parker), or a hatchet man. I promise you will not like the hatchet man at all. But keep wishing, you’ll will get what you want very soon. If you think the BOD is on your side.......take few days off cause you don’t understand how this place works or how THEY (the BOD) want it too.....it isn’t about you I promise.

American West. Team Tempe was very good at running an operation that was based on low wages and cheesie service. It's not cutting it anymore going against UAL and DAL.

He taught Parker how to buy back stock at 43 then drive it to the twenties.

Ha. He also mortgaged the aircraft to the hilt to obtain the cash to do it.

How these guys get their jobs blows me away. I mean you could pay a monkey in bananas to make better decisions.

I loved how Kirby immediately came up...and don’t forget Isom too. Both of whom are just employee loving guys.......ha.

Careful what you wish folks. You just might get it.
There is a reason Scooters name came up. He was interviewed on record last week and it came up. I’m not sure anyone here would rather see either of those guys running the show.

Yeah never mind the 50 million extra middle managers that AA has who actually run the show.

You'd have to have a lot of middle managers to come up with all the Rube Goldberg policies/processes AA has.

American Airlines-Why do it in one step when you can do it in three?
.American Airlines- If there was a better way of doing it, we would have already told you what it was!
