Re: Why Doug Parker over Thomas Horton over at AA?

He wasn’t even in aviation again until AA filed chapter 11, he was at AT&T.

Horton was a caretaker Chapter 11 CEO, Carty was CEO right up until they filed.

Re: Alaska Airlines ordered to pay Virgin America flight attendants for unpaid wages for duty time, etc.

A CBA still has to be in accordance with State and Federal laws. Just had a case in NJ that a law was enacted and AA stopped shift swaps as the law stated anything above eight hours was to be paid at overtime.

They had to get an exemption passed to resume shifts swaps.

Re: Charlotte Aviation Thread - 2019

Still doesn’t make sense.

AA has shrunk it’s NYC footprint.

You could fly JFK-HNL on HA 332.

Or fly to LAX, SFO, ORD and many other cities to connect.

Once again the flight was tried and failed.

If there was a demand AA would be flying it.

If the need and money was there for a HNL flight it would be here.

CLT doesn’t have the O&D for such a flight.

There was a reason it was ended in the past.

There is an exemption in the FSLA for flight crews. It will be overturned upon appeal.
