- Total Time
I love for months how folks have been so sure AA would buy/merge with B6 and now it's definitely Airways. We won't know for sure till the day the memo comes out.
And it's been a land of milk and honey ever since...APA and USAPA have both gone rogue on ALPA...plus,...they both have a seniority "similarities"...
Just get the popcorn, put your feet up, and get ready for the show!
Just wondering, would AMR pilots staple the LCC pilots like they did to TWA ?
Oh!...that's right, AMR is the one in bankruptcy this time :O
This could be the windfall for the LCC guys
Well, it makes sense on a couple of levels:
1. Gives LAACC the mass to compete with NWDAAL and UACALL.
2. Combines the AWA/APA pilot groups to put USAPA out to pasture.
If they were to merge I believe you are wrong. The AA pilots would definatly support a DOH position. Look at there longevity vs AWA. This number will increase if AA suffers a loos of flying and furloughs.
The AA pilots would definatly support a DOH position.
Won't be a windfall for anybody, Heaven forbid this merger should come to pass.
And for the record, I support binding arbitration and unlike some I can live with the result, come what may.
APA didn't staple the TWA pilots. If that had been the case I wouldn't have been furloughed with 700 TWA pilots still flying AA metal.
It wasn't pretty for the TWA pilots but saying it was a staple is completely inaccurate.
