A memo from the Allied Pilots Association disputes allegations that pilots at American Airline (AAMRQ.PK) were directed to delay departures and call in sick. The group reiterates that operational difficulties - such as the availability of spare parts and increased FAA scrutiny - are behind the carrier's mysterious rise in cancellations and delays. The bickering is starting to have some alarming financial implications with industry watchers openly advising passengers not to book flights on American.

    Wow, AAretired, nice shooting from the hip!


    How about a better idea? Why not replace the inept managers at AA with a few that might know a bit more about how to run an airline?


    Just Google "Largest FAA Fine" to see which airline has the "earned" the largest fine in the history of aviation: that would be AA.


    There are surely a few smart folks over at Southwest, a full 13 miles to the East, that could run AA one heck of a lot better than the idiots at the AA corporate helm today. In the meanwhile, I'd stop throwing rocks at the folks that have kept the operation running for decades, while those in the Executive Suites has been lining their pockets.


    Looks like they're just tired of being abused while the managers try to cram down pay cuts from 1992 wages . . . .
