I would hate to be a negotiator and have to keep a straight face when making that comparison. "See, we want THESE rates, even though they went bankrupt. We don't want to talk about those new rates."
I dunno. Maybe it's funny just to me. If it were up to me, I'd rather pick hourly rates out of the air than try to hang my hat on a failed ex-contract by a bankrupt airline, but that's just me.
