The new deal will be..."You guys figure out how you want to divvy up the $1.5 billion and get back to us when you have figured it out. In the meantime, we are going to have to meet with our BK attorneys AGAIN, because you have taken us one giant step closer to the brink at a time when we are collectively begging for the ONLY lifeline the company has at its disposal, the ATSB loans!
If and when you THINK you have figured out what the f**k is going on, let us know, and we can organize a vote. In the meantime, we all have to sit on pins and needles waiting for the 141M guys to figure out if they want to be paid like pilots for their A&P, or whether they want to be guaranteed a job for life in an industry that is slowly being choked to death, or perhaps they want us to guarantee that what happened to their brethren at USAir will NOT happen to them, even though it is THEM who are sending us into BK in the first place. When you guys have figured out exactly what it is you can agree to give up that is worth the $1.5 billion YOU agreed to in your "coalition", let us know. But if you think the BK judge will think that 7% is too stepp, just let us know now, and we can all ask him tomorrow."

Lol,, Hey mancity relax man, everything's gonna be allright bro. Me, I didn't even vote but I'm glad it turned out the way it did. I know the consequences of bankruptcy, you don't have to tell me but there's something wrong with the package like vacation not getting paid and things in workplace that needs to change, it's like a prison system no flexibility whatsoever. Being on 6 days on and 2 days off is a f***ed up schedule and no end in sight. No flexibility when it comes to taking your dat days. I know it's all about the needs of the business but things can be better, like when we had the esop, nobody was complaining that much then cause we had better schedule more flexibility, non of that prison mentality like it is now. I know we are going to be voting on the same package(the mechanic's part only)but let's see how they are going to redo it so just chill and relax, k bro.
