    United sinking again today $82 and change in June, $65 now. United has gone all in that the deck is so stacked in their favor they can taunt and abuse passengers and create the turd of basic economy to secure a short term looting. If that strategy fails-and even Wall Street seems to have severe doubts, they will clearly need someone to take over who can at least mouth credible claims that the company cares about customers and actually spends a few minutes a month on service and value. If so, the current Algorithmic In Chief who comes from rail freight might have to stand down. Shed no tears, he will sky out with $20 million or so-the price of edible first class meals for hundreds of thousands. Maybe the new CEO can Spring for a first class mini muffin in lieu of pretzels.

    A cursory glance of a couple of routes shows: unscientific of course
    A. A lot of empty seats relatively close in
    B. $40 air fares on some UAL routes. Their is no good will firewall at all. None.
    America wants low airfares and reasonable treatment.
    The cartel has been confederating to offer high fares and a crappy product.
    Sorry I did not purposely post on AA but it's really all one cartel anyway.

    You'll be happier felching instead of spamming the forums, believe me.

    Speaking of felching. I would never hang out with the airline execs who destroyed our air travel system-usually try to make the homecoming at a federal minimum security prison that weekend. Perhaps having a select group fawn over them gives them the idea they are not despicable. But their unfettered greed and myopia should be criminalized. Who's felching who?

    Attacking passengers turning out to be a VERY bad idea as UAL continues to be routed-it has lost a quarter of its total value in six weeks or so. If United is going to try to entice customers after repelling them for a half decade, it will surely need some new faces at the top-Instead of the lavishly compensated asset strippers that have taken the company on a rapid descent after gutting everything that wasn't nailed down.

    Now that they have sold off the family heirlooms, the kids sneakers and the leftover cat food, the question remains as to whether the asset strippers and quick buck artists at United have the mettle to bring the airline through a competitive environment that has seen the stock lose a quarter of its value in a short few weeks (and the Street.com predicts the reduction will be -40% before it bottoms.) Starting in the cellar with consumer relationships, they gutted them even further than imaginable. So if a resurgence at United depends on treating passengers like people instead of chattel (or rail freight), they will need to find a Donny Osmond type who can at least smile while wielding the customer service chainsaw.
