You are an ass.
Although you know a great deal about the airlines and unions, you are woefully ignorant, it appears, in this area.
While many on here disagree with you, you at least seem to be well versed in commercial ops and can put together coherant posts.
I am very surprised by your sudden, inaccurate, and inflammatory remark.
If you aren't embarrassed by your post, you have a problem.

Just sayin'...

Deadly drone strikes in Pakistan

Two suspected US drone missile strikes have killed at least 12 people in a tribal region of north-west Pakistan, Pakistani security officials say.
The missiles targeted a compound described as a Taliban training centre, about 30km west of Miranshah the main town in North Waziristan.
Officials say the first strike killed seven people. Five died in a second attack as they searched for bodies.
It is the fourth suspected US drone attack in North Waziristan in a week.
North and South Waziristan are a major sanctuary for al-Qaeda and Taliban militants.
Hundreds of people, many of them civilians, have been killed in drone attacks since mid-2008. Top Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud was among them.
Pakistan has publicly criticised drone attacks, saying they fuel support for the militants. The US military does not routinely confirm drone attacks, but analysts say the US armed forces and CIA in Afghanistan are the only forces capable of deploying drones in the region.

Missiles fired by U.S. drones kill at least 14 in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD – Eight U.S. Predator drone aircraft fired at least 17 missiles at suspected militant positions along Pakistan's border with Afghanistan on Tuesday, killing at least 14 people in an exceptionally heavy barrage, security officials said.
The targets included houses, cars and bunkers in North Waziristan, a region dominated by militants battling U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan, Pakistani intelligence officials said.
The late-night missile strikes were the latest in an intensified CIA-led campaign in Pakistan, reflecting a U.S. belief that the eight-year war in Afghanistan cannot be turned around without the destruction of militant safe havens across the border.
The CIA has launched more than 70 missile attacks into the tribal region over the last 18 months, killing scores of militants but also many civilians, according to accounts from witnesses and Pakistani officials.
The strikes increased after an attack Dec. 30 on a CIA base in Afghanistan killed seven CIA employees and a Jordanian.
North Waziristan is the base for the most aggressive Afghan Taliban faction, led by Jalaluddin Haqqani and his son, Sirajuddin. The U.S. military believes the Haqqani group is the most dangerous and ideologically committed of the Taliban factions.
