    This was discussed extensively before and after the case was filed in February 2006. The MAA pilots and flight attendants filed separate law suits against ALPA and AFA, respectively, as well as US Airways and America West. The claims included Racketeering and breach of the unions' duties of...

    MAA flight attendants lose appeal

    You mean your attorney didn't tell you that more than two weeks ago, on July 21st, the opinion in the 2nd District appeal was filed with the Eastern District of the US District Court affirming Judge Gershon's ruling and dismissal of the flight attendants' case? That's amazing. The pertinent...

    US Airways Names New Vice President of InFlight Services

    Well I just spoke with a very good friend of mine who was a union rep at NW for several years. I wanted to get his take on this. When he finally finished laughing after I told him US just hired Hector, here's a synopsis of his remarks: "worthless" "excellent resume, but brought down NW's...

    FA Union Dues increase-retroactive

    What part of it is untrue? I stand by my statements. Oh, and how long should it take to get signatures from jetBlue? Don't they still have well under 1,000 FAs? Seems to me that AFA continues to throw good money after bad... and it's all being carried on the backs of the dues-paying members...

    FA Union Dues increase-retroactive

    Actually what they have to pay for is the latest FAILED attempt (this is the third one?) to organize Delta. That ain't cheap. They actually pay a staff to do that (hand chosen by one Ms. Pat Friend... they're her goonies over at NW who helped organize from the inside and then FAILED to win an...

    how bout a full page apology letter in usa today

    Good idea, but AFA is to busy spending our dues money on repeatedly trying to unionize airlines that clearly don't want a union. There's not much money left in the till to actually represent dues-paying members. Pitty!

    CO backs out of merger, UA/US deal still on?

    I know it's Lakefield. I dont' know why my fingers typed Lakewood. I also know that he has little airline experience, but he was heavilly involved in the merger of US/AWA and has extensive business experience, and knows all of the key players. I continue to believe he will probably play a...

    CO backs out of merger, UA/US deal still on?

    My thoughts on this whole thing: 1. Merger announcement by the end of next week, if not this week. 2. The merged company will try like hell to get Bethune as CEO; he'll pretty much be able to name his price and terms. If Plan A is a no-go, Lakewood would fill the spot. It's best to have...
