Andys talents as part of our organization and know his skill set will also contribute greatly to Habitat for Humanity a cause that is very important to him and Northwest.

This has to be one of the funniest and biggest lies dougy has ever told. andy's skill set was getting ride of people. Well hell maybe he can keep that up and there won't be any poor people to build home for. So what is andy to do? Make Habitat for Humanity more profitable? Sound's to me like nwa is embarrassed by this runt, and attempting to hide his name from the roster until the anti trust hearing is done. The least needed gets loaned out. Now andy if you had a union this would be the lowest senority VP not you. Look at what all your hard work got you. Hell give amfa a call. Maybe they'll even forgive you, and sign you up.

Wow..I thought Habitat for Humanity was to help poor people. Isn't this against "lil fat boys" convictions?? I thought he only helped rich people. I thought he was the antithesis of Robin Hood..steal from the poor and give to the rich? This just shows how everything in this country is becoming sooo hippocritical

FW, I can't for the life of me, figure out why Andy 'Dandy' Roberts would bare his Soul, to help people in Distress? He sent thousands of NWA Employees to the street, lost their Carrers, lost their Homes, no more Paycheck, now Destitute, on the Un-Employment Line; but will now Build New Habitat Homes for those Ex-NWA Employees who now are in Dire Straits? Sure sounds Fishy to me? Did Steve Gorman and Dougy, have anything to do with this Questionable Assignment? Does King Richard hold Stock in Home Depot or Lowes? As far as the NMB, they love the Airline Bosses, and it shows ..

Googs, looks like andy might become the Oswald of the nwa assassination. At a time like this... when nwa is failing in all directions... The least needed gets loaned out. And as desperate has their labor relations are now known to be! Dougy tries to picks something that shows some feeling for the less fortunate. Removing andy at this time is kin to Slapping on Bondo and new paint, before parking your old heap out front for sale. I couldn't imagine the feeling of working in MSP, and watching the place you work come down around you. Anyone still believing nwa is simply a victim of the times, has to be out and out stupid. The pack has almost striped the carcass bare, and with the remaining morsels left... the runt of the litter is pushed aside. andy has now learned his place ! The only question I have... is did he strike or get locked out ? LOL HA HA LMAO.

FW, The only way Dougy could get rid of the Beast and save face, was loan him out, before King Richard & Steve Gorman had to Fire 'It' and move on .. LOL !!

Send that Bum Andy packing. He has no interest in helping anyone but himself. This interest he has in HFH makes me sick!

I give him a year maybe year and a half. He'll be back especially if Delta becomes union. These rats seem to turn up when you least expect it.

I remember andy and steve gorman coming around doing their lead meeting. Gorman was the boss, and andy the puppet. I got the feeling gorman didn't like andy very much. I feel that because dick pulled gorman into delta, andy is never going to have the power dougy gave him after gorman left. I am betting andy is done. If you have ever followed the bonuses pay outs at nwa... andy always got what low level VP's got. Andy was used and stroked. He needed ego builders more than money. Dougy fed him just what he need. Andy believed he had won the respect he needed. Andy is the Karl Rove of a past administration, and just the same, the world is better off with out him.

I hope you're right!
As far as the world being better without him...

Many years ago I bought a flight pass with Northwest for
under $400! I flew all over the U.S., I started from New York
and ended up in Hawaii, in between them I was in about 10 cities!
That trip was and still is the best trip I've ever done and also
the best deal by far, America was and still is an amazing country,
unlike no other I've ever been to (traveled a lot) Later on I also ended up living
In the U.S. for many years! I wish I could do it all over again,
both the trip and living, I'd love to do it just the way I did it, same trip,
same living, just 25yrs later and that much older.....heh!
I have honestly never in my life felt like I always did in America!
Happy 4th. Of July America!
