People please drink the Kool Aid. Its very healthy for you. AMR loves its pilots, its pensions, its people. AMR is the best airline in the world and we will be the best pilots in the world.
DRINK THE KOOL AID PLEASE TRUST ME ON THIS.

tell your son to fly another airline. take a bus, maybe a car...
interesting that you folks love to keep blaming the pilots. send them packing you say....I am packing for vacation as we speak...
you stated 'the obviously delayed flight because of pilot slowdown'
what was the pilot doing? having coffee at the gate, taking a nap in a chair, a jog on the runway.....just wondering? how did your son determine it was an obvious pilot slowdown.
Yes Betsy, that's the solution, don't fly AA or use some other mode of transportation to solve the pilot slowdown. Oh that's right, all of these aircraft magically started to have maintenance issues during coincidently the same time the pilots didn't agree with the AMR bankruptcy contract proposal.

Betsy, you may think you're the sharpest knife in the drawer, but you're not!

STOP INSULTING OUR INTELLIGENCE!

You're family has twenty three years of airline experience in the trenches. Wow, that time pales in comparison to lot of us participants in this forum.

The majority of us speak from varied backgrounds, experience, and boots on the ground observations.

Oh by the way, did you read about Southwest flying to SJU. While the pilots whine and cry about their dastardly predicament the other airlines are swooping in to pick out the spoils.

Enjoy your vacation. If you’re flying, hopefully the coffee pot is working and you won’t take a flight delay.

Its a fight the pilots will never win. Face reality,as far as what Dana said,other industries acts the same as the airlines,how about GM,Chrysler,Advance auto parts,GE and time doe not permit me to name them all.They have all cut pay and benefits,outsourced jobs overseas and downsized. Big brave talk but when the job actually ends and the cheering stops,then the magnitude of the situation sets in.Little character,integrity and being tenacious will mean nothing when receiving unemployment checks,just the realization of what the pilots left behind.
It all comes down to this,1.Keep your job at AA or 2.Look for another job. Management will collect millions whether the airline survives or shuts down,but the employees won't.You keep talking as if the employees can change the way corporations work.All the bravado that you spout means nothing,I did not say the pilots have to be happy with a new contract,just as the other labor groups who agreed on new contracts are not happy,its just the way life is today and all your tough talk will melt away when the checks stop.
I can tell you have never been through tough times and I hope you never have to but I have and its sad when you are willing to work and can't find a job that will pay the bills and or have such watered down benefits that are not worth the premiums.When a person is over 50,they are viewed as past their prime and not worth hiring and yet its a time of their life when they have garnered much experience in their field and can teach younger workers much,but they are not given the chance to show what they can do. All those who worked at Eastern thought they could control their destiny but in January 1991 it all came to an abrupt end and they all hit the pavement.Those who don't learn from the past are bound to repeat it.
Romney and Ryan 2012!

Yes, the pilots wave a magic wand...just like pixie dust...and create mechanical issues.
I said 23 yrs AMR. You dont know any additional varied background, experience, or boots on the ground history.
vacation is great, flight was on time, and coffee pot was working.
