[P]Why do you feel so threatened by a simple question? You need to get out more often. [/P]

Do you know how many F/A's on furlough are from the TWA NYC base?
I don't have a breakdown for that. However, it seems we were down to about 800 FA's in NY when it closed, and we had a high percentage of the newer people. Once the base was consolidated in STL, there were two further furloughs; 200 in Jan and 420 on Nov 1. I have no way of knowing which of those were former NYers.
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.
Another question that no one will answer: How many people laid off from the airlines will never be able to work at the airlines again? How many AA mechanics still on layoff? How many TWA Mechanics still on layoff? It is not whinning or crying, but rather questions that need to be answered.
