So, if Kelly utilizes this rumored nuclear option and queers the deal. Will the local political structure in Georgia want to allow Southwest in to ATL garunteeing a lot of very unhappy local voters? And if The deal falls through and Southwest dose'nt get the Atlanta base and gates, will Southwest then be forced to furlough?

You don't VOTE to get gate leases, you BUY them.

ok im hearing that 650 at fo's are stapled to the bottom of swapa list. so a 7 yr at fo , which would have had upgrade this year is now lookin at 10 to 15 year upgrade? How is this fair and equitable? Didn't the airtran guys bring thier own planes and routes and 50 new aircraft orders? Seat Grab. Bull$hit.
Hey bentover,

The Clampetts were ACQUIRED NOT HIRED !!!.... fool what part of that don't you fools get ???????

for the loss of seniority you are being given a long laundry list of goodies than anyone would be happy to get, in fact before this deal was announced you fools were begging for a staple, now look at you acting like you bought SWA and you wont be happy until SWAPA takes a staple on the bottom of your JV list.

Look Jed, please vote it down, if you don't we will, and start thinking of a new call sign for Texas Sub Corp airways, you guys are going to need it.

I know, I know the ALPA job killing machine and your loud mouth legal team are telling you that you are entitleted to our left seats but in the end even if an arbitrator hands down a list that you guys all love and high five each other over, SWA and SWAPA only have to use the list if we are merged into one carrier and that wont happen,

so start working on the new call sign....maybe granny or nelliemay or Jethro ???? I don't know, you guys pick it because you are the ones that will have to use it and for a long time I predict.

Staple staple or a no vote!!!!!!

YoYo,

The vast majority of SWA guys and girls are decent people. You .... on the other hand; Well, I'm gonna enjoy you.

This will not be easy on you, and you know it. ;)

You must be a real peach to fly with.

How about racheting it down a couple of notches and waiting for the package to be presented to you by your BOD and to us by our MEC...assuming it gets past both of them.

It looks like you'll be a NO vote for sure. The term "staple" applies to an entire pilot group. AAI is not getting stapled although there may be some of our junior people near the bottom of the ISL...along with some of yours. So you might as well get the egotistical staple mentality out of your mind right now or prepare to attend a long series of anger management classes.

Easy come easy go, SWA is a good airline to work for, since buying AAI not so much. Both carriers are in distressed status by the FAA, I wonder why, a free pass for over 8000 employees, and no reach around for the rest of us.

Wow - you guys have some serious issues...
Only some of us- the rest are curious to concerned.
I'm sure not many from the outside feel sorry for any of us, and I keep that perspective. No matter what happens, there's 8000 really well qualified who'd love to be junior to all of us.
Perspective. Use it or lose it.

What does "distressed status" mean?

You can't argue with that. Yoyoma brings up a valid point. How many trannies got turned down by Southwest? By his own admission, Lear70 got rejected by Southwest at least two times, plus all his begging on flightinfo for SWA to buyout AirTran and staple everybody. It just rings very hollow now when that clown gets back in here and says he deserves more now that the buyout actually happened. What a clown.

Well said yoyoma. These FI trannies are loudmouth greedy and phoney clowns. 99.9% of them were trying to get on elsewhere too probably, but couldn't.
