American management is very selfish! They have not wanted to consider the obvious better alternative of a merger because they want to get everything they can out of their unions, reap the immediate benefits of the ridiculous cuts they want to impose, and THEN allow the merger so they can comfortably leave with their golden parachute! This is inexcusable behavior and shows an incontemptible lack of concern or compassion for the very people that run American Airlines-the actual workers!!!!!

If USAirways takes control, AMR management is out. Hello, management looses their jobs. Lots of office workers in Tempe will also loose their jobs. If Obama is gets another term, fuel will continue to rise and lots more people will lose jobs. Do you really think Parker is any different? Concern and Compassion?

Excuse me but I'm so sick of those that think Obama is responsible for high fuel prices. It was actually the highest EVER under Bush REMEMBER???? So I don't want to even hear that!!! I'm telling u that the people at American seem to have lost confidence in their management! If u remember, when the other airlines were in trouble there were in fact a couple of CEO s that refused to accept bonuses to help their ailing airline!!! THAT for ur information is care and concern!!!! That has never happened at American the last 12 years.

In 2003, aa management work hard to work with employees to keep the airline running. Great effort by all both sides cut costs and made money. Most of it going to upper management and employee benefits. But as the price of fuel continued to eat up any gains made aa's management failed to see a merger was a must to start to make stockholder profit. They, aa management only concerned with their egos. Merge things will get better
