Forgive me, I am relatively new to this airline thing. I have a quick question. Why don't airlines just go to an arbitrator right from the start? Have any airlines ever done it without going to an arbitrator? I would imagine with any SLI, some people are going to be ticked off, and the MCs would rather point the finger to an arbitrator, then themselves. So, why not just skip the "cordial" SLI meetings, and expedite this process by going straight to arbitration? Thanks.
