So was this a surprise? Look what Wilson and Checchi got when buying NWA a decade ago, and they never ran an airline in their life. What makes Dick Anderson, Tilton, Fornaro, or Allen a good choice for running an airline, they dont teach that in school, and therefore they dont deserve sky-high pay, unless they have a track record of making an airline profitable from earlier jobs (Note: No airlines are profitable)

They earned that chaddar! Give them the benefit of all doubt. Just look at what, and who, they had to tolerate. That alone justifies the cheddar without any mention of the success achieved.

And so wonderful to know that these are the very same people who will receive 90% of the tax cuts which just passed for another two years. I'm sure they will invite us ALL for a ride in their new 90 meter yacht!

As usual the OLD [email protected], aka Brown Sugar sides with BIG money and over-paid, self inflated, arrogant airline management! Just like Rush, Glenn, Pat, and the old F*CK STICK named Brown Sugar...and JUST as useless! Giggles!
