    It seems that there is a growing number of in-flight crew who are fed up with the us v them mentality of the two sides of the company. Some FAs have launched a simple program to have crew members trade their scarves or ties with members from the "other side." The goal is to get to a more unified and friendly place for all the crew much more quickly than union contract negotiations can ever realize.

    I'm supporting the effort and hopeful that it is successful. They seem to have a decent bit of momentum and growing quickly given that they just started last week.

    I misread "trading scarves and ties" to mean that we'd see Doug McKeen wearing a purser's scarf.

    I guess there are a few ways to interpret "other side" in this context, huh?? :oops:

    I saw a pmCO crew wearing pmUA scarves and did a double take. Now I understand what it's all about.

    Hope it gains a lot of momentum.

    I misread it to mean that customers would have an opportunity to collect airline ties. :oops:

    It seems like it's a grass roots effort within the company by employees WHO WANT to serve customers and make things work. I wish them well as this craziness continues! :)

    These employees deserve the praise of each and every UA traveler. Especially frequent travelers! It's great to see a grassroots effort promoting working together!

    It's a cute and creative way to build teamwork from the ground up. Great idea!

    Had a sUA FA wear the sCO Tie on my P.S Flug this morning. I gave him OPR, it was an excellent and lively flight all around.
