    Airline Industry Is Doomed

    The decision makers at Us Airways and the nations other airlines are doomed to fail, without a doubt. When one sales a product, any product, at less than cost, then it is obvious that there is no profit to be made. If some uncontrollable cost of the product or service (fuel) increases, it must...

    More-uair Stock Price

    I guess we cannot properly call the latest stock price rebound a "dead cat bounce" after all, considering the technical explaination of the definition, which was so throughly provided on this forum. Guess we will just have to give a new name, maybe a "dead skunk bounce" or someting similar...

    The Best Post In A Long Time

    Normally, I would not post directing others to someone's post, in another thread. But this hits the nail on the head. It is a must read for everyone! Moderators, please be tolerant. BoeingBoy posted at: Words of Wisdom I'd compare us to a ship that's been torpedoed (economy, 0-11, LCC's...

    United Rumored To Be Looking At Buying Piedmont

    This may just be another silly rumor, but I heard from two different sources that United is interested in buying PDT. Seems that with ACA pulling out, UAL is thinking about owning its own wholly-owned regional, to replace the lost feed. Ownership would provide total control, and avoid another...

    Indicators Show The "ship Of Fools" Is Sinking!

    It's amazing! The sad truth is finally evident. Does anyone else notice how the tone of the news articles has seemingly shifted, to past tense for US Airways? Dave's interview in: USA Today If this was another public attempt by Dave to force his hand in negotiations with the labor groups, I...

    Mesa Employees Unprofessional Appearance

    A reliable source was browsing over on the Mesa page at Yahoo Groups and found a suprising post. It seems that some of the Mesa employees are concerned about their company's overall unprofessional, mismatch, wear what you want, appearance. One asked Ornstein when was he going to do something...

    Cause For The Employees Not To Support Siegal

    Actions of the past are often good indications of what to expect from someone in the future. As an example, if someone convinces you to help them, but then scams, robs and lies to you, you probably will not attempt to help them again in the future. Of course there are always those slow learners...

    Us Airways Already Owns Lcc's

    US Airways already owns, and has had for years, it's own low cost carriers. Why does management continue to ignore the Wholly-Owneds, who have proven in the past they can profitably feed the mainline jets? I'm sure that the answer is not outsourcing the flying to the contract carriers...

    This Company Needs A True Leader

    Perhaps it's just too much to expect. A true leader has the ability to rally the troops to the challenge at hand. His employees will follow him to hell and back, if necessary. I don't think threats and lies will allow one to obtain this level of employee loyalty and the resulting company...

    One Other Mistruth From Dave

    Do we really have reason to not believe everything Dave Seigel says? This is just one example which haunts the PDT workers. When the three wholly owned subsidiaries, ALG, PDT & PSA were all in negotiations for concessions, Dave made the statement that whichever wholly owned reached agreements...

    Dave's Us Airways, A Possible Flaw.

    Maybe it's just me! Could someone, maybe you Dave, explain to me why anyone would chose our pitiful excuse for an airline over the competiton, if there is a choice? I've been in a rather successful business of my own in the past, before I sold it at a profit. I'm a firm beliver that you must...

    Faulty Rj Business Plan

    The following is one opinion of why the current plan for RJ's will not work! Dave Siegel's plan seems to be for MDA, with RJ's, to go head to head in many markets where the competition is using larger mainline type aircraft. These customers will, of course, choose our product over the larger...

    Mda Groundschool Shutdown By Faa

    It's reported on the latest ALG Code-A-Phone message that the FAA shut down the MDA pilot groundschool, last week, after only two days. Something about not being satisfied with the program, even though it has been in devlopement since last year. Can anyone comment on this?

    Mesa's Ornstein Say's Pilots Overpaid

    From another post: >Keep in mind...Ornstein is doing plenty to keep the industry salaries at poverty >wages. His comments about "Pilots" being over paid should alarm you directly. > >How can he assume that his pilots are over-paid? Simple "I have no problems >filling my new hire Pilot classes"...

    Piedmont Fades Away........

    It''s interesting to read from the Piedmont web site at: http://www.piedmont-airlines.com/CoInfo.htm as the current US Airways leadership continues to slowly squander this once profitable, industry-leading, wholly-owned regional airline. The outsourcing continues! The last paragraph states...

    Management is Satisfied With Low Quality Service!

    US Airways appears to think low quality service is perfectly acceptable. The express division statistics show MESA is near the bottom in all categories, delays, completions, etc. Management seems to think this is good enough and continues to reward them with even more flying. Let's not forget...
