You are missing the point. It isn't the cost of the borrowing, it's the freedom to actually borrow from the money markets and banks. A State might not have the ability to extend borrowing to cover expansion of the airport facility, whereas by reconstituting it as a private company the shackles of h...Jump to post

Well union did say this: It is important to review these baseline facts: 1. This violent incident should never have happened and was a result of gross excessive force by Chicago Department of Aviation personnel. The cherry picked fact here is that there is no mention about, or discussion of, calling...Jump to post
UA pilot's union bashes police/security for the fiasco at ORD. Of course, if law enforcement were not called things could have gone down better. Big solid for the company.

If the ratio is 10/2 why would you change and accept empty seats? Odds are in your favor to overbook.Jump to post

"I'm too meek" to defend myself. No sympathy. The first time he touches intentionally like that you yell at him and call the FA. It's a public environment. You aren't in danger of escalating.

I wonder who released his name to the press and perhaps helped dig up dirt on him? Who would have the list of passenger names on the plane to release that? Any idea who? ;) Since police were called they would have to do a report. His name would be on that report. That report would be public record ...Jump to post

And any interline agreement is only as good as the number of available seats on a given flight. With the planes going out full on most airlines, interline agreements would barely scratch the surface of the lift needed. If you are stuck in ATL the odds are probably several thousand to one you would g...Jump to post

A libertarian. I guess being overtaxed and overregulated will not be an issue with you.
Oh, it was very hypocritical. But, it was great fun too. Got lots of media play in a positive way. Good on 'em. But, they also need to remember, what goes around--comes around. If I was UA, I would just wait--and wait--and DL will do something they can take advantage of. Can't wait.Jump to post
AVOD is "better" for a lot of people. The key question, though, is whether it is sufficiently better for a sufficiently large number of people such that it generates incremental revenue sufficient to justify its costs (both upfront and ongoing). Personally, I'm skeptical - as are, apparen...Jump to post
I would have been surprised if there was no provision for a fee for an extended period of time. AS will continue to pay some sort of fee as Branson laid out to keep the Virgin name off another airline or airline startup. You have to look at the payments as insurance/no compete policies. Good business.Jump to post
You can fly free anywhere in world, but you have to abide by my---arbitrary dress code that sets a little higher standard than regular travelers---would you take it?Jump to post

So far from this thread I have learned from the pilots: 1) Norwegian's employment scheme here will fail because no self respecting US pilot will want to work there. And if they do they are scabs and will be ostracized deliberately by US airlines forever.. 2) Norwegian might succeed and all tens of ...Jump to post

This is not a zero sum game. For every miffed VX flyer who goes to UA (funny in itself) there could be three others who like the new AS look and start to fly the airline.Jump to post
I have zero faith in the government's ability to privatize anything correctly anymore. Especially with a president (and other white house and congressional officials) with all kinds of business ties. I don't see how we can privatize something while maximizing public interest. There are countries th...Jump to post
Here's an old article from the Chicago Tribune. At the end it states he returned to TWA. Some crew refused to fly with him and he was promoted to the 747.

Last time I went flight was about 95% full. Only a couple of open seats each way.
Local news did a story. It is delayed. Several issues.

Up in the Air (yeah obvious) I remember annoying me because it clearly used the McNamara Terminal at DTW for a loyal AA flyer.

It's incredulous that AA doesn't have their major management officers sign noncompete agreements. In many cases non competes are only as strong as the paper they're printed on. No competes at the highest level we are talking about are very different than lower level no competes. At the very senior ...Jump to post
