Miles, you're very wrong about Fleet, he's always attempted to form an unbiased opinion about this integration process which we have little control over. As a former LLCer, I consider myself fortunate to be on AA's payroll. Many of my former colleagues continue to struggle with mortgage, mounting medical and college tuition bills. Likewise there are many more AA'ers suffering. These are difficult times yes, and in the midst of all this hurt, there are those who do not wish that the healing begin not only in the airlines industry, but in our own USA as well.
It's time to reach out to your friends and neighbors in need.
The big picture? The US must first secure it's borders, initiate a quick economic revitalization program, and then deal with the Palestinian-Israeli issue once and for all. Everything else has to be put on hold.
