    Us Airways Says Woes Increasing, Cites Fuel

    Simply put, it is the same reason most people select regular grade gas vs mid and premium. It is only about a .05 between the grades but that difference is what make regular the highest seller. Unfortunately when one raises ticket fares there is always someone that screws it all up by not joining.

    Those Who Fail To Change...

    The Real problem is not only did the industry change but the Government has not allowed the natural process of change to take place. They have proped up carriers that do not need to be probe up and have allowed the BK process to advantage mis managed Airlines. That is the fundemental change...

    Us Airways Watch – 9/28/04

    The real question is not, not having a job, but rather not having a U job. Tons of former U employees working at JBLU and others. All starting at the bottom again but still working. U's management has so trashed the company and industry (with its antics) that working for those wages at an...

    More Section 1113(e) Information

    Beat them until they give in and then beat them until they conform and then beat them until they forget! Some people have a low tolerance for pain and therefore at the sign of a beating they jump straight to the last step. (USA320) Others have memories that never fade, as such, they break away...

    Us Airways: Pay Cut Is Only Hope

    I doubt that, you only care about what is good for yourself. If It does not go the way a320 wants it it is bad. You are very hypocrytical, arrogant, self serving. Wasnt long ago when I remember Old A320 crying about how he other jobs lined up and how critical he was of former leadership when...

    When Will Usairways File Chapter 7 ?

    Dont think it will happen in the immediate future. Reasons, You have a very anti-labor administration in office and it is election time. Would be very bad for a company as large a Usairways to go away, especially one with this much media coverage. Do you actually think the ATSB give was a...

    Ua To Dump Mesa As Express Carrier?

    Capecod, I think that the jist of this thread is that at Mesa you get what you pay for. MESA is the lowest bidder and therefore cant or provide the type of service that is needed. Dont blame U for poor service at out stations when it is most likely Mesas fault for agreeing to the outsourced...

    Fll Announcement On Monday At 10:30

    USA320 Point taken but the fact of the matter is you are both losing money. It is just a matter of who has more to lose. US does not have a deal yet with its employees. You said it best when you said "with a competitive cost structure, how cares?" You have to get a cost structure first that...

    Fll Announcement On Monday At 10:30

    Actually I think the competition is directly with AA as US is tapping on the mia feed from AA toall of these destinations. It is also in direct competiton with JBLU's feed to FLL and their enevitible expansion into the Caribbean from JFK and or FLL. It is clearly an attempt to fill airport...

    Proposed Apfa Agenda

    It is about time someone really started thinking about the future of your jobs. In my opinion you should be talking with the pilots on this one and do everything you can to bring Eagle under the AA fold. ALL PILOTS, FA'S AND MECH'S!!! The battle we face is the growth of Eagle at the expense...

    To Usa320pilot

    USA320pilot, Let me begin by stating that you really need change your attitude a little. You really come off as being a bum kissing yes man with no integrity. It is just as easy for those of us at other carriers to take your stance on a broader plane. eg. Your stance: Give what the company...

    Us Airways' Biggest Union:

    unfortunately all of the legacy carriers have gotten the south beach mentality. That is that Plastic surgery is the cure for everything. You can cut off all the fat you want and install all the silicone you want but in the end you are still older and your health is even more at risk. You care...
