Agreed. This "Ask Bill" thing is pretty sweet. He's been answering basically all the rumor mill in a week or less plus adding useful communication on other stuff. I though RG was a pretty good CEO but BL is turning out to be as good or better. Doesn't hurt he's also in charge of Delta Connection generally.

Interesting. I just watched the video myself. So, what you're saying is, I don't need to rely on you guys for the latest information? I can go straight to the source now?

I've got a question and I'm going to see if this whole 'real time response' thing works.

Yes. BL putting fact in front of the rumor mill. What will the APC pot-stirrers do now?

Also, pretty sure the "ask Bill" feature has never been advertised as a "real time response" program.

I guess the only thing left is to see whether any of it comes to fruition. I know plans are always fluid but at some point some of this actually has to come true to lend credibility.

Default Not sure I like it

I for one donít like all this question answering and giving us nothing else to talk about. I think itís just asking for trouble giving us nothing else to gripe about in the airplanes. What else are we suppose to talk about...politics? Religion? Lanyard colors?

Question. Why does AA value Eagle (Envoy) pilots and Delta doesnít? Iím kidding Iím kidding. Delta likes to choose who they hire. Top candidates. Simply the best.

I'd say talk to the envoy guys about forced upgrades, junior man's, schedules, reserve rules, second year pay cuts, and 10 year flow and maybe they'll have a different take on the whole "AA Values Us" statement. Grass isnt always greener.
