AA's employees dislike and don't trust him. It would make from a very tense start up to a new carrier.. Doug Parker has AA workers his corner for the time being.. I don't hear the unions support for Horton.... Ths should be interesting

AA employees don't like anyone in a Management position, because they think they can run an airline better. Only fool's gold to think anyone would make the Pilots happy for more then 10 minutes!

I only go back as far as Crandall.. People thought he was a prick, but everyone was happy he was our prick. He was agressive. Carty really got the ball rolling in 2003. Getting life altering concessions then rewarding himself with a big chunk of the money he claimed we needed so survive. Arpey and his crew took annual bonuses, while still struggling employees got nothing. The BOD stood by and did nothing... Finally Horton leads a coup d'etat, and we go into a BK that should have happened a decade soon. Employees give again and Horton says thngs that are very unprofessional for a person in his position. Everything you read in the company tells us how we are great because of our people. Deep down based on what I've heard come from his mouth first hand, Mr. Horton doesn't feel that way. That said AA'ers will back Parker. College and beyond friend of Horton. I dare say the would back a random person from a crowd of people that has not been AMR management in the past decade. Is Parker any better, ask any US Airways employee... But he hasn't been with AMR in the past decade.
