Also, Chip, Your faith in the money issue is flawed. You had the best money could buy, and they all can or will take golden parachutes if they decide to leave a sinking ship or a floating one. Money will NOT KEEP anyone of this calibur. The oil industry is losing someone and United is gaining someone. Do you not think he was not paid well in his last job, do you honestly think he is doing this for the money? Do you honestly think Seigle is doing this for the money? Are you doing what you do for the money?----------------

I understand how it's difficult for someone to be asked for a concession and then see that group that seeks the concession obtain a bonus. However, we need good management, the best money can buy if we are going to survive.
If the company survives and then thrives due to good management remaining at US Airways, the employees win with bigger profit sharing checks.
I want the best management team posible and if that takes a small bonus, so be it. Seniority based employees do not have lateral transfer ability and are a prisoner to their airline, but management can move about from company to company.
I do not believe any employee wants bad management so things get worse for our employees and let's not forget, you get what you pay for when discussing management employees.
