    No Passenger Standards on AAttire?

      You're too stupid.   Also, how do we know she isn't a Mother _______ Legend?

    No Passenger Standards on AAttire?

    Was she allowed on the flight?  As far as I know the airline has no power to enforce regulations concerning attire within the terminal area itself, unfortunately that is still a "free speech zone".  What can you do?  Now, if she herself is a Concierge Key™ or her daddy is, or she's some other...

    KJZZ did an interesting eight-minute segment last week where they discussed the relocation of the flight training center out of PHX, AA's relationship to the city, and the viability of the hub operation.

      PHX has T-Link.  Years before the merger there was talk of an automated routing system for conx but nothing ever came of it.

      It's cool.  You can find the interactive route map here if you want to see where AA flies.  Click Routes and then un-click 'Add AA Connections' and 'Add AA Partners' and you'll be able to see exactly where AA-branded metal flies from any city.   Not sure about DAL, I'd imagine that with the...

    I'll start off with my station.  PHX just last night came off of the summer FLEX schedule.  The gate reconfiguration is in full-swing to increase the number of gates that can accommodate 757's, 737's, and 321's with the N1 concourse being pretty much finished.  The blast fence at the hangar is...

    With the merger ongoing there are still a lot of changes yet to occur in AA's network.  The looming FOS integration is expected to allow the airline to allocate equipment more freely between stations for better utilization and optimization.  I thought we could try a thread where we can discuss...

    JCBA Negotiations and updates for AA Fleet

      Tim often brings up good points and possibilities worth considering.  So do you.  I don't take anything from either of you though without a hefty grain of salt.  It's nothing personal, but talk is cheap, and you guys talk a lot.       Is it because 700's gone and the valuable (lol) work he was...

    JCBA Negotiations and updates for AA Fleet

      You asked what I thought my employer paid me to do and I told you exactly what my employer pays me to.  Really very simple.  Mutually-beneficial legal agreement between parties - known as contracts - and backed by the rule of law; one of many many things that also contribute to American...

    JCBA Negotiations and updates for AA Fleet

      Correct.  Promotion is often based on an employee's relative value, but what that value is depends on the employee and who is promoting.  Could be because the employee is knowledgeable and effective, could be because they're a suck-up, could be because she has a knock-out figure and wears...

    JCBA Negotiations and updates for AA Fleet

        As can I.  I'd been on a corporate fast-track once before and literally started at the bottom (of a warehouse floor) and worked my way into my own office, with a cute title, on the other side of the country in a relatively short time and at a young age.  I got there because I busted my a**...

      In fairness, we ALL get to benefit from his petulant, boringly self-righteous moralistic grandstanding.   Which reminds me, where's 700 these days?
