    I realize it's not the most interesting stuff in the world, but it's probably a good thing for those in the airline world to at least have a cursory knowledge of.

    As far as customer interest, I completely agree. That's why I've stated in the past that most airlines don't necessarily care that much (or at least not enough to pay the cost that goes with "buying" a higher ranking via a higher B0) what rank they are, as long as their not at the bottom, or low enough to warrant a news clip about their poor ranking.

    Is there anyone at home in that skull of yours? I don't need anything to convince me NWA is unsafe the news media does that on a regular basis. Ive explained the dangers of outsourced maintenance at least a hundred times, go back and read my post. Im not going to continue to debate the in's and out's of third party maintenance with a bean counter who only cares about the bottom line..$$$$$!

    your right 45 does'nt but 43 DOES
    talk to this specific situation, here it is again:

    [Code of Federal Regulations]
    [Title 14, Volume 1]
    [Revised as of January 1, 2003]
    From the U.S. Government Printing Office via GPO Access
    [CITE: 14CFR43.12]

    [Page 856]

    TITLE 14--AERONAUTICS AND SPACE

    CHAPTER I--FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION, DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

    PART 43--MAINTENANCE, PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE, REBUILDING, AND ALTERATION--Table of Contents

    Sec. 43.12 Maintenance records: Falsification, reproduction, or alteration.

    (a) No person may make or cause to be made:
    (1) Any fraudulent or intentionally false entry in any record or
    report that is required to be made, kept, or used to show compliance
    with any requirement under this part;
    (2) Any reproduction, for fraudulent purpose, of any record or
    report under this part; or
    (3) Any alteration, for fraudulent purpose, of any record or report
    under this part.
    (B.) The commission by any person of an act prohibited under
    paragraph (a) of this section is a basis for suspending or revoking the
    applicable airman, operator, or production certificate, Technical
    Standard Order Authorization, FAA-Parts Manufacturer Approval, or
    Product and Process Specification issued by the Administrator and held
    by that person.

    But don't let the facts get in your way 'finny ole boy' after all if PTO says its okie dokie, its good enough for you! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    You know Beanie, in the great scheme of things blue juice in a bucket is not, in itself, a big deal...Having said that lets look at this little "TRUTH"..."If a person is unfaithful in a small thing then he will be unfaithful in a larger thing". There are lots of mechanics who skate through their careers doing the absolute minimum and take every shortcut out there in the name of "Looking good" or "Kissing up" to their managers in hopes of getting a bone thrown to them or just getting away with less work. I've worked with these kinds before at nwa. They are lazy, no accounts. They exist in every profession at every level. But when a person short cuts he will always do it again. Soon it is part of his routine and he short cuts the bigger, more important aspects of his job. I can guarantee you that when PTO gets caught someday short cutting a serious safety of flight issue his managers aren't going to give him a pat on the back...They'll give him a kick in the @ss and the FAA (if awake at the time) will give him a fine or worse.
    So stick with the beans and leave the serious stuff to people who know what they're talking about.

    Now that's very funny comming from a low level salary postion employee. :huh: The ones I have came across are empathetic or have no comment (because it is a little dangerous to be saying those things to frontline employee like me....) :lol: I suspect someone doesn't have a 4 yr degree in anything. Isn't it true that recently there was an accounting position open that only requirement was a fundamental understanding for accounting? (e.g. HIGHSCHOOL ACCOUNTING)
    Infact I am starting to think that you, PTO and csar gangrene is the same person. It is obvious that you have a heavy knowlege of financing, yet ZERO in managing. If you went to an AACSB accreditied school you would of had a good year's worth of management courses and would probably have a better understanding of why scabs are not a "brilliant" idea. :lol: Just wait until your paycheck equates to $33.00 a month. :up: Hey... what is that I hear? Ernst and Young has accountants working from India??????????? hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....................

    I don't really know what to do with this, but I guess I'll just point out a few things about myself so you can focus your accusations and insults a little more in the right direction.

    First off, I have a masters degree in accounting. Second, I work in an operational finance role, not accounting. Third, there are a lot of clerical accounting positions that may not require a college degree, but I can't really speak to that. Fourth, I've been in a management position for a couple years.

    Speaking of beating something to death, how about we retire that overused Holiday Inn joke.

    That's what I thought. Thanks for verifying that for me. I understand the slippery slope argument, but I just think using this event as the foundation for that argument was pretty weak.

    At what point did I ever refuse to TALK with any protesters? I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of times there have been protesters out there when I leave. At only one time did any ever TALK to me, and that was to ask where I came from. I smiled, and said, quite truthfully something to the effect of " way too many places to mention" He chuckled at that. I then posed for a picture, wished him, again quite truthfully, the best of luck, finished my cigar, and went inside.
    So who is this "Ralphy" and why should We fear him? I was under the impression that the hard working and honorable protesters out there were strictly law abiding and peaceful. Are you implying that this is not the case?
    PTO, it was indeed a fitting farewell. I WOULD say it ws reminiscent of many a "Hail and Farewell" I have attended in the Corps, but apparently, such references to the military are offensive to some here.
    To the rest of you, in regards to the departure of PTO. Like him or hate him, he did get ALOT of you fired up. (The first thing I told him after introducing myself was "Son, I aint never met a man in my life who managed to p**s so many people off in such a short time!")
    There is an old Indian saying that says "Do not judge a mans impact by the number of his friends, but rather by the number of his enemies." In that regard, PTO has definatly made in impact!

    Huh?? So you think repeating a punchline that has been used about 10 times on this board in the last month is not indicitive of, as Adam Sandler would say, an "unoriginal bastard"?

    I know you're desperate for a good burn, but you need to try harder.

    No need to try and burn, you do that well enough on your own.. :D

    Yea its about as unoriginal as the constant praise you give to the SCABTAIL maintenance department on its suckcessful turnaround extravaganza.
