    Fyi - Dave Recorded His Weekly Msg Today

    His message is a focused example of his leadership. Imagine an NFL, MLB, or NCAA football coach blaming his team for his failure. The buck stops at the top. He has failed miserably to rebuild this company. And he needs to be out of here so we can get on board with new and credible management...

    No Plan By Us Airways To 'pack Up' And Leave Pit

    Bob: What makes me think it won't work is simply what he has done so far. I would have thought you would see that. You are always touting yourself as a guy who knows how to succeed. Let me expound on that. Even IF he comes up with a plan that has a shot, how is he going to get everyone on...

    Chippy: He can lose crediblility or he can lose the airline. And if it doesn't matter to him which one he loses then all the employees here will lose. If a supposedly intelligent man cannot understand that he must have the support of the employees to be successful in the situation we are in...

    This is what it is all about. I know who Carol is. She has been here since Orville and Wilbur figured this stuff out. And despite everything that has gone on since Siegel took over she, and thousands like her, continue to do their normal outstanding job. The company is the employees. Not...

    Us Airways Pilots Call For Removal Of Siegel,cohen

    Lets see now Chippy; First he takes us from 430 some jets to 279 saying that is how we get profitable. Then he says no, I want to add 60 jets if we can get the costs down announced at the same time the pilots call for his ouster. Coincidence? Or is that a tactic used since Hector was a pup...

    In Response To Chip

    Blue: Let me point out something that glared at me from Bronners statement. He stated the "board has complete confidence in Siegel and his team". There are 4 seats on that board that are owned by ALPA, CWA, IAM, and the TWU. How he states "complete" support is baffling. No, it is a lie...

    In Response To Chip

    True Fliboi. And imagine how our morale would be if we had a CEO with the leadership and airline-running skills of Bethune, Kelleher or Neeleman. Siegel just pointed out his opinion that there would be 3 or 4 airlines left and asked if we wanted to be one of them. Bethune would have pointed...

    The same thing ALPA and the vast majority of our employees think of him. Inept and clueless at running the airline. Expert at the Chapter 11 process. mr

    fliboi: Let me just make sure I understand you. Are you saying Seigel is a good CEO? A leader? A motivator? Is he capable of leading this company? Is he as good as Bethune? Neeleman? Kelleher? Has he used the tools we have given him to remake this company? Has his plan succeeded? Here...
