    Parker SUCKS for sure.
    Now with that said, AA being in $$$ Trouble ?
    NEVER forget, LAX - JFK - LHR, and code shares with B A + JAL (Did I mention QANTAS) ? And always on the back burner AA going after AS !

    You're living in the past, Bears.

    Parker screwed up by trusting that the unions would stick with him. It appears that AA has lost most of the cost advantages they gained in bankruptcy with perhaps the exception of pensions, and from a network perspective, it's really not clear where they've gained anything.

    Well swamt, I'll give you, that Herb really did care about his people. However, when it came to being 'crafty, or dumb as a fox, or shrewd, No One could hold a candle to our old boss, (Uncle) Bobby Crandall !

    Anything Parker learned from Herb he did the opposite. He has made the once proud AA an embarrassment to the industry. America Waste/US Scare should have went into liquidation but they suckered our pilots and flight attendants into this abortion of a merger. After my 34 years of legacy AA time I can only describe this airline as a totally toxic work place.
