Taking management tips from Austin Powers


Aug 19, 2002
That's the kinda Press we can live with for a change!! Dave's approach is a thousand times more interesting than the Stonefaced pocket-liners of the past. Too bad that things had to sink to this level....before affirmative changes had to be realized. Regardless of the Lumps we are all having to take. I think Dave is pretty sharp.....the indications from the ATA don't hurt much either. If The Press has time to write stories like this?....it sure means that they are running short of negative things to say for awhile. I think the industry as a whole , could use a break from that. Way to go Dave!!!!

I'll be honest and say that I like Siegel and his approach more and more with each passing day. He is the right person to turn US Airways around. The guy is a sharp airline industry leader AND he has a sense of humor, which is something the other starched shirts of this industry could use a dose of (especially at my employer
