Not sure if people don't care or are just unaware of Tulsa Maintenance Vice President Bill Cade's lay-off. Anyways, here's his letter from yesterday: Bill Cade Vice President – Base Maintenance and Engines August 2, 2018 Tech Ops Team, It’s true what they say – the airline industry is one of the few that gets into your blood and stays there. I know that firsthand, having started at Grumman Aerospace more than 30 years ago. The industry has evolved in so many ways and yet it’s the same one I fell in love with as a structural mechanic in 1984. The highs have been great and the lows have helped us all grow, and for that, I’m incredibly grateful. That’s why it’s with mixed emotion I share that I have decided to retire from American. This decision wasn’t an easy one. In fact, one of the most difficult I’ve had to make. I love this company and I care deeply about each of you. But, I know it’s the right one for me, personally, and for American. I couldn’t have asked for a better career than what Pan Am, TWA and American have provided me. But beyond the companies I’ve worked for, it’s the people who have made this experience so rewarding. So, what’s next for me? I’m not quite sure. What I do know is I have time to figure it out. No doubt, this gig will be a tough act to follow. My last day with American will be Aug. 17. I’m honored to have been part of this team and know that you’ll continue to do great things. I look forward to cheering you all on.
