===Mesa CEO points finger at unions: The airline industry is often characterized by tense relations between labor and management. While management has been seen by many as the aggressor in recent years, Mesa Air CEO Jonathan Ornstein offered an interesting perspective on the subject Wednesday at the Las Vegas World Aviation Forum. He said that the union rhetoric and the union's "constant fomentation of anti-management sentiment by unions" can poison the relationship between the two sides. "And then they turn to us and say we're confrontational," he added. There were no labor representatives on Ornstein's panel — though if there were, they likely would have dispute Ornstein's assessment. Mesa Air operates feeder flights for Delta, United and US Airways. Posted 11:10 a.m======================


Unbelievable. Of course they're going to hate you when you pay them industry-low rates and give them 8 days off "in a 28 day period." That guy just plain needs to go away.

When is the next contract due at Mesa? If y'all succeed in giving JO hell and raise your contracts' standards, it'd help us all. No backing down in the name of "growth." Fight hard.

So what is the great JO doing to fix labor relations at his airline? More finger-pointing trying to shift blame without doing anything to improve the situation.

Mesa v. ALPA

Ornstein,

You Dirty Rotten S.O.B. The only problem ALPA posses to Airline MGT is informing it's pilots that their skills are worth more than what they are paid.

Airline Exec's reap the reward(s) when the airline makes a profit. Why should the pilots take pay cuts? Oh yeah, because you Exec's are worth more than the guys and gals who actually make the company profitable. Not!

You Exec's sit in your Glass Palace and take Huge Bonuses when the company is in "hot water" too. Time for the pilots to wake up and smell the profits. Time for management to wake up and smell the jet fuel. Time to take what you are woerth. lol....:beer:

We need to picket him outside his house (the hole in the ground) with pitchforks like they did in Frankenstein. We need to tar and feather this A**hole and run him out of the industry, even if it means a fight to the death. I for one, would sacrifice my career if that meant his...

Well Lorenzo was eventually run out of the business, I guess it could be done again with Ornstien. "Unfit to run an airline", anybody remember that from Hard Landing?
