What does it take to get a reporter to write something with correct facts.....the Airtran pilots are represented by ALPA right now not SWAPA....How difficult is it to get a damn story correct these days....If this flying thing does not work out I am going to be a reporter...write about $hit and who cares if it is correct. There I feel better.

Actually it's not wrong. The acquired FL pilots WILL be represented by SWAPA at the time of the integration.

Wonder how ALPA feels about its members cleaning the cabin.

I wonder how ALPA feels about their lost revenue due to Airtran pilots leaving them and those pilots getting a HUGE, HUGE, HUGE windfall raise also.
