Great job APA! Love the "which side are you on boys?" soundtrack.

Seems like the UAL-MEC recently had a resolution to boot management pilots, but I think it failed.

Seems like typical strong arm union tactics that never work. I don't believe this is the way to get management and the union together and solve problems but good luck with that. Also, anyone who could be in their position to make bonuses would take them in a heartbeat. If anyone says they wouldn't I would have to say they were lying.

Just for the record, what would be your way to get this done?


Have a BBQ on a nice day so everyone can see that everyone is actually a real person?

This is AA, who has pilots listed as Cost Units on the books. There is a LONG history of treating the employees like crap, and things are BAD now with the pilot manning tight. Ask any AA guy on reserve how his life is and see how much he wants to sing kumbaya with management.

Stay strong AA guys!

Just watched the video from the web site; what is a "Captain's Card"?

Question to all. Shouldn't they go after the board of directors instead? After all, they are the one awarding these fat bonuses. Would be nice to see their faces on some Utube vid.

And the APA is known for it's benevolence towards it's fellow side-by-side co-workers. Give me a break, I laughed so hard, I passed a kidney stone.

Stay strong, former TWA pilots, the APA has guaranteed you won't have any career, but instead multiple furloughes.

Just a question, is a requirement that everyone get that cool picture taken in uniform so they can have Christmas cards made?

Agreed. I don't give two craps about APA's problems.
