Reduce management jobs? Hey AMR take a page from the book of this Oneworld partner. The BA method of clashing with your employees isn't working too well, although that is the current path. Did anyone at AMR HQ read the DL full page USA Today ad when then gave out profit sharing checks?(The profit sharing check is a bonus paid to the rank and file employee, and is only paid out when you make money. I know odd comcept. AMR finds money for mgmt bonuses reguardless of financial status. I digress). Happy Employees make for happy passengers and happy passengers are loyal passengers.

WILL the employees still get a free cupcake at bonus time?

AMR does not give bonuses to the rank and file, only top management. Cupcakes aren't in the budget. To be fair, once a quater AMR does give out performance bonuses to the rank file. If certain levels are achieved an employee will receive an heavily taxed check that is less than a days pay and a PayDay candy bar.... knew you'd love that part.
