    Interesting quotes from the courtroom.....

    Prior to pilot pay and benefits being cut pilots would say that " I do this for the love of flying". Now your saying it doesn't pay enough and it takes 3 recalls to get 1 back. Which is it? Most folks would be more than happy with pilot pay and quality of life issues. Not trying to pick a fight...

    Exec: Delta Unprepared for Pilots' Strike (AP)

    Judge: Dal Pilots Overcompensated!

    Just curious. If the pilots on average make $169,000 and have already given a BILLION in concessions how much did they make previously? I've heard rumors of lump sum pensions of over $1,000,000? Someting seems out of whack, but I'll not sit in judgement. Seems most folks could get by on any six...
