Auto---c'mon pards---(as Phil would say)---let's be real here. It is about pay and entitlement. Look at the shareholder value he has created. Look at the shareholder value pilots have created. One does good, one threatens good. He negotiated a loan in the worst of times, he took over the airline in the worst of times---and the ungrateful pilots are still employed. Look at earnings, look at the industry as a whole----pilots won't support him because they don't feel he has respected them (or has treated them how they deserve to be treated), so even in the face of the obvious---they continue to bash him and the company whenever possible.
Not a lot of sympathy for the malcontent. Last I checked, we were not a socialist society or economy. We could work for whomever we wanted. Whoever, because they created or ran the company, was therefore capable of paying whatever they wanted.
I have flown many, many times on RC's---any mostly on J.O.'s RC's. They are so bad that he has managed to drive his stock price from $2.00 to $12.00 (rounded estimates). He must be very bad at what he does as well?
