Getting ready for an AMR merger? Maybe? They'll get DFW back, maintenance faciltities, South America, what ever is left of the Caribbean, LHR, and MIA. I would rather see them than USAir.

Why would Delta get any of that traffic due to a merger? They are getting rid of 2000 people. They are reducing capacity not expanding. Your comment makes no sense.

So your suggestion to DAL Mgmt is to not lead, but follow? Send more seats to unprofitable markets, expand to even more Intl markets that are slowing due to economic problems? No thx. We made 1.5 bil in 2011 in a very lousy economy worldwide. The merger wasn't even complete till 01May12 so all possible synergies have not been realized and still making profits. High emp morale, prfit sharing chks and a payraise staring, as promised 01Jun12. The merger is apying off, you won't agree. If the refinery deals out to be a win, you won't agree w/ those actions either. Glad ur not onboard.

I have NEVER posted ANYTHING under your moniker, however, YOU madame, have attacked me in SEVERAL airline forums. You seem to have a great deal of pent up anger and aggression toward other airline employees. Perhaps you are in need of some time off or a hobby OTHER than Topix airline forum.

You've been signaling doom and gloom for some time now. Wonder what it feels like to be publicly proved wrong over and over. This is the exact time you said we would see the real'Dickie'.........a solid biz man w/ credentials that are proved daily/weekly/monthly. You crack me up.

Spade will continue to knock DL and RA with absolutly no facts to back it up. His knowledge of the ailine industry is zilch.

Once again YOU have me confused, I have NEVER posted a response to your attacks until now. You are a BULLY on Topix, NOTHING less. BTW, I have NEVER been as rude to you as you have to me. No wonder your fellow DAL employees have the low opinion they have of you. I did NOT throw the first punch, that was you, and unjustified I might add. I will however, stand up for myself on Topix, and my opinion. So Madame, perhaps it is YOU who needs "hormone" replacement, or a drink or perhaps just a good date. In ANY case the chip on YOUR shoulder is just that, YOURS!

Looks like that union thing is working good for the pilots. Now RA can buy bigger jets for the feeder airlines. And with all this good news, why did dicky dump so much of his stock the day after the deal for the refinery was signed? Is eleven and change as high as he sees it going?

"Glad ur not onboard" Me too. One ticket on dicky's roller coaster is enough. Don't forget to throw your hands up high when you go over the top.

Does Toad not understand that these CEOs are a different breed of people altogether? The RA's, Jeff Smiseks, John Pritzkers and Frank Lorenzos do not care about their employees or the working class. They are there to lengthen their resume and fill their pockets, not make a career, or keep people working. When they do not get their way they send you packing...not the other way around.
