    Gripes!

    actually I think it is better for the passenagers to lose it in the lavs than on the folks next to them and the aircraft(i know i wouldn''t like having someone get sick on me).all that bouncing around in the air also may make you have to make a lav call,when sitting in a stationary plane at the...

    Union Employees will never be satisfied with anything

    Regardless, the bottom line on the executive compensation is that it is none of your business. You are the employEEs, not the employERs. The employERs hired you to do a job, and if you don''t like the working conditions or pay then leave. No one is holding a gun to your head forcing you to...

    American''s Top Execs Bonus

    Now this is the part I don''t understand,just like when our Governor Davis bought into the overnight power shortages that happened over night.That was obviously bullchit.It doesn''t happen over night.Just a ploy to Rippoff by the greedy,and our simpleton Governor bought it. Why is it i feel...

    737 seat pitch

    Republicans to United: Screw You!

    In the meantime, to watch one of our leading carriers fall to its knees and do nothing, is in my view not in our best national interest and therefore unAmerican. So while I'm a free market capitalist, I'm also willing to intervene when it's in our best interests and when thousands of jobs and...

    Is Bankrupcty a better option?

    You c Bob, it's like this, in the Continental case Lorenzo asked for concessions but the unions said no, so he asked the court to reject all the contracts. In TWA's case TWA and the unions came to an agreement just like what happened at US Air. So who got screwed more in those cases Bob? So u...

    THIS MEANS WAR!

    First, my heartfelt sympathies go out to my fellow workers in TPA. This is never a pleasant thing to go through, I am going through it now in CLT. The timing of this sucks. Sucks big time. That being said, they could have waited until Friday, but everyone is getting paid at least. The worst...

    Here are most of my worst nights in a nutshell. Does anyone miss the DC10's?I was glad to see them go.Working in the oil soaked patio of the number 2 engine,with the wind blasting you,the rain coming in sideways made for some not so fond memories. Changing a CF6-10/50 on a DC10 in one night...

    Even ten years, and several thousand hot showers, after the fact, I still think of this night whenever someone starts telling me how simple and easy my job is. I laughed so hard reading your post.I think we all have had our shot at getting the blue shower. One night we had a 737/800 with a...
