    It is interesting that in the previous LBO that the pilots rejected, a "gag-order" would have prevented them from protesting any executive compensation/bonus package after exiting BK that AMR would have proposed to the judge. That "gag-order" is supposedly not in the agreement currently being negotiated between AMR & APA...has Horton seen the writting on the wall and knows he won't survive the merger?

    Merger? It will be 7-10 years without contracts.

    Does anyone know how AMR stocks would be handled? would it be an even exchange?
