Bull Crap

United States

Some company PR spin for the loss is blaming LABOR COSTS in the airline industry again. THIS IS PURE BULL CRAP.

Continental has been through bankruptcy 2-3 times to cut labor costs United has been through bankruptcy 1 time to cut labor costs... AND the merged company is blaming high labor cost for their loss

BULLCHIT with a capital "S." When is this chit going to stop.
P.O.ed in aviation and these damn POLITICAL liars and candidates who are not taking a stand for labor at all in these elections.

Actually, if you can read financial statements, or even PR releases, you would see that UAL set aside $452 Million for lump sum payments to its pilots. This IS a labor expense. Writing it it off in the quarter in which it was finalized with the pilot unions complies with Generally Accepted Accounting Principals.

Some airlines actually have to provide fresh drinking water for their employees! This is why they loose money.

It is just a matter of time before labor groups are going to get squeezed again to compete against American Airlines. It never ends.

Labor is very expensive. No one hates. The new immigrants have dreams.
