I understand from a friend at the former TWA that the lawsuit against ALPA for the merger shaft job has begun. Anybody have details?

Hard to believe its been almost a DECADE.

What do they expect to gain out of it? I worked at TWA myself, but could see the writing on the wall, and got out before it all went down.

Disregard what?
I made a brief comment in support of the TWA dudes and then realized that it was repetitive with regards to "ALPA deserves to lose" comment. Good luck TWA guys. I have flown with many at 3 different airlines and all were great guys.

Alpo sucks, I hope they lose just for that simple reason alone. The world's greatest union ********************s more people than you can shake a stick at.

Class Action denial

Karl Childers, my cuzin, done gone to law school. I aksed him what this here legel paper meant. Karl sez, “I learned to read some. I read the Bible quite a bit. I can't understand all of it, but I reckon I understand a good deal of it. I done gradukated from the Paster Festus Law and Bible Skool, Mmmm.”

It's so easy to say "You should have seen the handwriting on the wall and left". The way our industry has evolved, is seniority is everything. Once you have just a few years in, you're locked in. Unless you can somehow see the future! When you're sitting in the left seat it's hard to trash everything and start over.

You're preaching to the choir glasspilot. I was simply stating the facts of my particular decision, and asking what is to be gained by suing ALPA over this? Lost seniority restored? TWA rising again? Noone hired at TWA in the late 90's was sitting in the left seat at the time of the merger. AA was seen as the white knight, perhaps they should be sued as well.

It would take too long to explain.

There's more than meets the eye. ALPA was actively negotiating with APA to join ALPA at the time of the integration without informing the TWA MEC.

It goes far deeper but that will all come out in the trial or afterward. BAD STUFF. RICO stuff. Pound-me-in-the-@$$ Federal Prison stuff.

Interesting how Woerthless is now working for the Federal Gov't.

P.S.--Excellent avatar, BTW.
