Not only are employees subsidizing execessive excutive compensation and their company''s financial survival, but they are also having their federal taxes siphoned off to bail the airlines out.

Well, being asked for concessions while the management initially tried to "slip one throught the cracks" while at the same time lobbying Congress for aid is more than anyone can handle.

Let me rephrase that FULLY FUNDED

So you are saying that even when things were going to hell AA officers dreamed up a plan that they would be in their $$$$$$$ bunkers while we die on their behalf.

American Airlines officers and NOT the employees are to blame for this entire mess. They fund a GUARENTEED pension plan, while the labor groups are unsure if theirs will ever exist. The officers and NOT the employees are GUARENTEED after departure medical, dental, prescription plans, travel, LIFETIME Admirals Club membership in some cases and a ton of other benefits.

No concessions should be made by any labor group until their pension is secure as the executive group. If this means the 45+ plan is removed with “NOâ€￾ chance of AMR renewing it OR if the labor groups involved have theirs FUNDED and GUARENTEED, that’s great.
Mr. Carty, comment?

So are your customers. So is John Madden, who never flies on the airlines. Should airline employees be exempted from the portion of their federal taxes that are being used to bail out the airlines, or should the government not use any money to assist the airlines?
