Exactly. Theft by deception, that was a good explanation of that move by Parker Puss.
YES. Exactly. Same happened with us (as we think). We think our BOD put the final pressure on GK to get it done and over with. So he sent in Mr. Kinder to get it done and sealed.
Thx swamt. I always liked that 1 phrase by Herb....durin an interview once when he was asked bout swa expansion at bwi n west n all herb cld say was Thank you to USAir. He was a good man at the helm.
Yes sir, he was, and in strange ways, still is to this day and in the future...
I thought it was dumb when AA picked Isom over Kirby, but they really proved their stupidity when they didn't stop Kirby from going to UA.
In retrospect, that's probably going to work out to be one of the biggest management blunders I can think of from deregulation... Kirby has been able to use AA's weaknesses to UA's advantage, and their earnings & stock price show it.
"We need to look into that" is the CEO-speak equivalent of the Flight Attendant-speak, "I'll be right back." Both translate into the English as "FU."
He's definitely turning them around, and his push to return to small/medium sized markets appears to be the right one.
Couldn't agree more.
I bet that Kirby move was the start of AA having non-compete disclosures introduced into their contracts. SWA has them and has had them for years. Non-compete for 5 years minimum. This is why Kirby could do it. And your right, he is using his knowledge of AA's weak points to successfully out do AA currently.
Another thing to think about, but slightly off this subject is, by the time AA gets their JCBA's in place UA will be getting ready to do another one for their mechanics too.
Thanks, Donny boy!
That sounds more like a failure of management at a lower level then Parker and Isom. More like a SVP, VP, or MD problem.
That would be the biggest blunder behind letting usscare air take over aa.
And where the hell are the board of directors in all this?
The ONLY President, CEO and Chairman That Knew W T F he was Doing was 'Uncle Bobby" Crandall., which I imagine 1/2 of today's AAers NEVER Worked For. Crandall Understood Herb, and vis versa.
Both drank and smoked like fiends !
Cashing out as fast as they can...
