    I doubt the unions care about the stock price. The problems of having 2 unions with different wants has been bad enough. They have not been up front with the membership with their positions with the negotiations, which leads people to think they are dysfunctional. Now that the court has become involved puts a different light on things. They are at a real risk of receiving severe financial punishment. Money is a big motivator. We'll see how this goes.

    When AAL stock was low at about $25.20 I considered purchasing, but my intent was to use my brokerage account at Fidelity.
    What I did not know is that that not allowed. Your AAL stock purchase will have to be made at your respective broker.

    You can use fidelity, just not in the 401k. I have a personal account, IRA and Trust accounts all with fidelity and the 401k. I can buy AA in all the others.

    I can assure you that the rest of the nation would be ok if Tulsa just fell into a giant sink hole.

    Being from Oklahoma you should be grateful to NY and CA, both states are supplementing all the federal handouts Oklahoma gets.

    Time for you to realize there’s more to America then just Oklahoma.

    I would love to be a free agent at AA, if AA decided to screw me so be it, at least I’m not paying the association to work at AA. If the majority of AA mechs voted for joint representation so be it, but this form of extortion is none of our choice. I have yet to come across any mech or union official that thinks association is a good idea.

    Just like when a contract passes, you can't find anyone who voted YES.

    Hopefully, workers are given a choice to opt out without paying a dime. That will be the most pro union thing to do as it ought to keep the union accountable and stop being an extension of management and thievery.

    you are correct, just think if the popular vote was used we would be ruled by California and new york. just think having alexandria ocasio-cortez AND talib representing all of us! everything would be free, free i tell you!

    Just think what really did happen, not your rhetoric, George W not winning popular vote, Great Recession and Iraq war, that we are still dealing with, and of course trump the national embarrassment.

    I don't like the Association concept, but think it would be totally asinine to have no union. Talk about cutting your nose off despite your face! If that's what you're wanting, just go into management and you will have it.

    I appreciate that, I like pointing out the hypocrisy of the so-called conservative states You know the ones that are the takers and love the socialist aspect of unions. If AA went bankrupt again and closed TULE and AAR took over the OH facility, I’m betting y’all wouldn’t be making $45 an hour and going to hooters. TULE should really just thank the line mechs in CA and NY for the forced socialism so you can make what you make.

    That being said, the smartest thing this executive team is doing for the long term viability of this airline is bringing the 787 work to TULE, should do that with the 777, AA should really invest in the long term care of their biggest assets ( including employees)

    All you have to do is look at the condition of the 727s when they were retired compared to the 767s being retired now.
