The US-AA merger - what the route map will look like

Feb 20, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Anna.aero

Another tailfin in the trash: US network airline brand US Airways is consigned to the history books, following Continental Airlines and Northwest Airlines to leave just three - American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines.

Sorry, maybe I was just assuming, I thought maybe you are now working for the outfit in Duluth.
I did move back to Duluth because I always liked Duluth. Now I am semi retired, letting my dal check buy the house. I am still a mechanic, Still have my hand in but don't wrench on airplanes anymore. Now, when turn a wrench I do it for spending money only. I finally figured it out... the biggest trap was wanting things. Now I don't want for much, and life is good ! The biggest draws on our lives are our... Mortgage/rent/taxes. Taxes you can't do much about, but my housing cost is now more than covered by my dal retirement check. Working is no longer my life, now working is merely an interruption in to my day. There is no longer a job out there that I want or need in order to have a roof over my head. Now I only work for comforts. I am living better now then I ever did while working for northwest. Back then, I believe that hard work would one day set me free. Now I am free...I only work to do what I think I might want or need. I have no loyalty to any job, my loyalty is to my comfort level. If I am not comfortable, I'll find another place where I am. I don't want for much, my house is covered, and my little boy dreams of being respected for my work are long gone. A job is a job, life is what You make it! Example; when I buy something now, I no longer think about the dollar price of it... I think about how much of me do I want to give too have it! Turns out that I donít want that much! The game has taken most of my life... whatís left is mine!!

Not learning. Just earning. You check out the DAL stock price lately? Just about doubled in the last year. Wasn't that one of your predictions?

Wow. What is it now? 16 or so? I've said this many times, " I've got nothing against Delta". I just don't like your executives ! Hell if you guys found yourselves without them I'd be your biggest FAN. Any prediction I made were based on their past performance. So far I haven't seen much of a change there. They still take millions while you guys work for the wages we made when they took us out. It's looking like a whole decade of escalating substandard wages. 16 bucks isn't a whole hell of a lot. A big whoopee for you, but is it really bragging rights?

How do Wino and Spade explain The recent profits and Stock price gains for Delta dispite their gloomy forecasts? Kind of proves that neither are tuned into the airline industry and are just washed up ex mechanics who blame NW/DL for everything including the grassy noll shooting. They are unable to grasp the fact that the vast majority of employees at Delta do not want unions.

Calling idiot stupid isn't hate talk. It's the truth. We are there as a team. Ur old days of 2 hr lunches for 80k a yr are gone in every industry. Perhaps if you had been more productive, alas the union said to go slow, need more members, go slow, need more dues.
I had to chuckle when I read this since my daughter-inlaw works at United in logistics. She tells us the lazy stories all the time, union and management employees!! The department she works with pays $60k per year to, dig this..."track aircraft parts via a computer and phone". She said the job isn't really needed, since the union employees also have personnel hired to do the same exact thing, but United believes in having "extra" staff to watch the other staff...LOL As soon as her degree is attained, she's gone..
