    Here is some great understanding playing out now. Cancellation after cancellation. Who understands the business upanaway? Your America West management has spent billions on stock in the 45 range and destroyed the franchise.

    And pilots are always astonished at how little understanding managers have of the business. Pilots get to see the entire operation, not just the same myopic view of one station. Which city station gets the operation nailed in great performance. Which ones make jets wait for up to 20 minutes with...

    The same BOD that gave Parker two country club memberships. How can he belong to the Dallas Country Club and green light Elise Eberweins constant Unconcious Bias content to all employees? Does that place even allow a black person or even any person of color ? I guarantee Elise and hubby Russ...

    SWAMT, you know you work for a very smart company. One that values cold hard cash and abhors debt. You will definitely fare better than the “ New American.” It’s the same as the old one. Bloated and run by morons. Doug Parker squandered billions of cash on stock. It’s just a matter of time until...

    And luck to you equally in the new, new American Airlines. Second bankruptcy. Doug Parker needed and was instrumental in the second USAirways bankruptcy. In order to take the remaining pensions. Looks like he gets to repeat this fall. Heads will roll.

    Time to drop the US Airways link.

    Absolutely. Actually, it is still Aeroflot. Who knew American Airlines was this screwed up until you delved into the Sabre system. Good news is this: hackers are actually confounded by the system, and move on to easier targets. It is like a millenial attempting to use a rotary dial phone.

    Why does the airline continue to fly A330 jets PHL-SJU with loads of 15 to 20 passengers? It’s a disaster burning that much fuel, paying the highest rates for landing fees and crew costs. Is there a plan to again bankrupt the airline and break contracts, pensions and leases? Or is it just...

    Standby for the bankruptcy of American Airlines. It’s headed that way. That cash used on stock could possibly have staved it off longer.

    Will it be business as usual with Parker running the airline? Or will employees demand new leadership? This is a CEO who spent time in jail for DUI, then bankrupted the airline through reckless stock sprees. Isn't it time for a new face? Watch as he does any and all things to protect his...

    USAir has told Boeing that it does not plan to accept delivery of eight Rolls-Royce RB211-powered Boeing 757-200s, and says that it is also discussing the "status" of its order for 40 Boeing 737-300s. A filing was made with the US Securities and Exchange Commission after the failure to make a $3...

    Munn drives the herd very effectively. Just like he drove his DC9 into the mud. He's got to be popping his hair plugs this time. The Legacy AA people are annoyed with him, and rightfully so. He buzzes around with strange theories on a perpetual basis. Unfortunately, he's never vocal when Parker...

    Inexplicably, Parker and crew are baffled as to how to reduce headcount hangover from the merger. Many years later. Puzzled analysts wonder how he can continue to chug along with 20,000 more employees than Delta. Meanwhile at GSW, the occasional slam of the foos ball hitting home rattles the...

    Perhaps Doug Parker will be faced by a large poster, or many posters like this as he mounts the flight of stairs to the US Capital building as he and other CEOs make the case for airline bailouts. As well as the chart showing the egregious stock buybacks enabled by tax cuts for US businesses...

    There are no borders nor limits on Chippys enthusiasm for the downside. Never a peep nor protest as Parker was scarfing stock at 43. He only rolls out to cheerlead concessions. Just goes to prove, you cannot blunt Parker's damage. It's limitless.

    At least the Max 737 is still grounded. And oil at an all time low. That will help ease some of the pain of the empty Jets. Mr Parker should never have hocked the house to the rafters. He's been in the business long enough to have seen it all. Seen it all to know the industry can, and will go...

    The newer " Team Members" on Below the Line seem rattled. Hopefully they won't feel inclined to aid Doug in his newfound mess. Seeing Doug had a close brush with airline death at america west after 9-11, one would think he would be well aware of how low cash reserves and the lack thereof can be...

    He has watched his personal wealth evaporate lockstep with the value of AA. Perhaps he can get a kale milkshake and play a little foosball with the AA interns hanging out at the GSW food court. He can regale them with stories of his exploits at America West. Possibly a little nap in one of the...
