Re: Delta F/A's & Fleet Workers Could Vote on Union Soon

The NLRB has nothing to do with airlines. That would be the NMB.

Do you know PDL FAs have a social security offset?

The sleep on floors or planes during IROPS since DL does nothing for them.

Shall I go on?

Re: Future Int'l Routes from CLT

LH use to fly FRA-CLT-IAH on a 747 combi.

US chased them out and they never returned that flight.

At times in the summer CLT-FRA is 2x.

When US moved the FRA flight from CLT to BOS LH never came back to CLT to FRA.

BOS-FRA bomber and was moved back to CLT.

And yet AA couldn’t make PHL-TLV work, or so they said. This almost certainly had to be about the old TWA/AA issue with Israel. There is no other reason the largest US airline wouldn't have a flight to TLV - be it from PHL/JFK/MIA. That issue was settled as the route operated after the AA/US merger.

When I worked in TPA when we were still Piedmont the route was TPA-CLT-LGW.

That is how the route was issued when Piedmont got the flight and it was a 767-200ER on the whole route.

AA doesn’t have route authority from LAS-NRT to fly non-stop.
