    Weazz he will never admit his precious AMFA is out classed and out gunned. I can live with myself I didn't vote them in in 2003!

    Well, whatever they did seems to be working? I can only speak from personal experience, but I don’t see them going on mechanical very often, not do I see them on the AOS list for engine issues.

    That's because Delta has a real engine shop, not a QEC shop like SWA has, and the took the BR715, and fixed it. I don't know if Rolls Royce still does Hawaiian Airlines BR715 engines or not.

    I never have said we would not get ETOPS without a contract. In fact I have stated the opposite.

    That's not what the good news was about. And your wrong.
    I have said the gov would be more easily to give the ETOPS approval, but never said they would never get it without a contract done. Matter fact I have said they will get ETOPS with or without a contract if they really want to.
    Stop with the lies.

    Oh so you disagree with AMFA and Brett directly then? Ok.

    “On Wednesday, Bret Oestreich, national director of the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association, said the union will file for a cease and desist order that will “stop Southwest dead in its tracks” in regard to the Hawaii flights. AMFA claims that Southwest's recently announced plan to outsource ETOPS work related to its Hawaiian operations is a violation of the airline's contract with the union”

    So swamp does that mean then that you know better than Brett or that Brett is full of chit?

    Brett doesn't care about us, he has his concrete business, and paid by AMFA unless he is voted out. Plus he holds a mechanic position at SWA. He was at American long enough to establish his business. So if he keeps the train going , Seham keeps getting paid. It cost $150,000 in fees to file a Federal lawsuit. So round and round we go!
