Horton was a caretaker Chapter 11 CEO, Carty was CEO right up until they filed.
Horton also got about $20 million to leave.

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.
Original plan was 2017 and 2018, now it’s 2020
Here is the original plan.

Year end. That still means they can be removed.
The 787 order was for 763 replacement
The latest fleet plan shows the end of 2020

The 333s will be retired at the end of 2020.Jump to post

There is an exemption in the FSLA for flight crews. It will be overturned upon appeal.
Similar cases have failed in court before.
I wonder if AS would be interested in these to accelerate the retirement of the A320s before they repaint and redo the interiors. They already have been painting the airbus. http://www.airliners.net/search?keywords=Alaska+a320&sortBy=dateAccepted&sortOrder=desc&perPage=36&display=de...Jump to post

Try telling Steve Jobs that circa 1997. Apples to Oranges. I’ve lived through several mergers and two bankruptcies in the airlines. You can’t shrink to profitability. You can if management is so bad at picking routes that trip revenue exceeds variable cost. Your experience with carriers doesn't giv...Jump to post

I have no idea on the MAX order. As this is a 777 thread, I'm more interested in the deal UA received on the late 77Ws. What is the delivery schedule? 2 late this year and 2 in 2020. Just in time, for Boeing. ;) The two this year must have been started as white tails... Lightsaber Nope. Takes 83 da...Jump to post
I started in Air Cargo with Piedmont. The freight going over pound paid for the flight and still earned a profit firm cargo alone. It’s so busy that shippers have to hook cargo space. I know first hand how much money it generates. It’s so lucrative AA built a refrigerator area for cargo in PHL for f...Jump to post
Since DL is apparently no longer putting their own info graphics in their earnings releases, here is one from AlphaStreet. Too bad AlphaStreet didn't know enough to use a current DL logo at the bottom right instead of one from 15+ years ago. :roll: https://cdn.news.alphastreet.com/wp-content/upload...Jump to post
