Shut that goddamn airline down. For god sakes you AA pilots need to show some balls, and walk off the job and resign en-mass. Bring the Dallas economy to it's knees. Shut the airline down for ever.

A 25% pay cut in 2003, management then takes milllions in bonuses on the backs of labor, lost pensions, another paycut, more hours in the sky, less medical benefits----are you kidding me??? Raise the price of the tickets! Is this rocket science?

Rocco,

Apparently for you it is Rocket Science! If it was that easy AA would have done it long time ago. Have you ever heard of Southwest Airlines, JetBlue, the other low cost airlines too numerous to list, and the old legacy airlines that either went out of business or reorganized to lower their operating costs.

AA has to lower their operating costs and keep ticket prices at the same levels as the other airlines to remain competitive. Raising ticket prices to keep the employees happy doesn’t work any longer. It would if every airline would do the same. Back then it was called regulation

Don't you realize that the baggage fees and other ridiculous surcharges were created to compensate for the lower airfares. The public is so confused with all of these extra fees that they have to be the ‘Rocket Scientist’ to determine their real and actual cost for the ticket.

AE was the problem to begin with! they got to shut down eagle and sell the 80's. All the American Eagle pilots had 27 years to think they were going to flow through, but only 500 made it..... hellloooooo eagle pilots.... who are the dumb ones.......... AMERICAN EAGLE IS THE WORSE AIRLINE IN THE WORLD< MANAGEMENT< AND MEC< AL L where sold out years ago......

I just want to let everyone know that im gay. I have been gay for quite some time and i love flying the ATR. I have been having several affairs with other men including mechanics and rampers. i have them wear my hat when in down cunulingus style. I think that everyone in eagle has been down the drain for about 10 years. we all are screwed, we have to fight for mens rights. i think eagle will prevail in a new airline called Sky west.

Vote No on the contract and YEs for MENs Gay rights.

It would be an honor to fly with you as your copilot Jose.

Together we can return American Airlines to what it use to be in the 1960's.

My mom is scewing around on my dad. i saw her with an American Airlines captain on the front porch before going to work. I asked him if he worked for American Airlines and he said yes, but his wings on his shirt said EAGLE. which one is it?
This man is not too smart, when my dad catches wind of this he is going to be pist.
These eagle pilots think they are working for American Airlines but they are getting hosed, just like my mom, she is being swooped off her feet by a fake!
