    Initial reports make it sound like a problem with expensive union labor.

    But I'm sure someone can set me straight on that.

    that and crappy uneconomical old planes, crummy routes, crummy administration. Southwestern's unions don't seem to be a problem....you could google rather that showing ignorance.

    Of course Boooosh deregulation that has airlines paying 16 grand a year for pilots with no sleep might have something to do with it. Don't ask stupid questions- google THAT. And stay away from Rush/Fox/Moonie/Kochcrappe or you'll just stay ignorant....lol

    You would, but you're a brainwashed ignorant Pub dupe jackass....

    Google Flight 3407. It came down about 30 miles from here, and around Buffalo we're not transplanted rejects, fodder for corporate swine.

    Hell, I'd like a link to where American Airlines mainline pilots only make 16K per year.

    Regional pilots for American Eagle start at 25K flying 50 seaters.

    Yes, we'll see how big the AA executives' bonuses will be, while the workers get nothing.
