Pilots battle against 'Walmart-ing' of airline industry
It "could" bring TATL prices down, but they said the same thing about WN coming to ATL, where fares did not bottom out.
It's unlikely that fares coming down anytime soon, especially now that demand picks up and supply is still tighter than it was a few years ago.
The Unions and Government keep cheaper cars out of the USA and the Taxpayers bailed out the Unions,
The taxpayers never have been paid back...let the free market dictate the price,
Today half of GM vehicles dashboard instrument do not work.,,Says a lot for quality work and design.
Another Union Game, paying off regulators, costing the taxpayers.
Interesting comments. To my knowledge, the US government has bailed out America West, US Airways, and American Airlines in the past. I suspect that there may also be a few other airlines that can be added to this list. Were the unions also behind these government bailouts?
Would you like to clarify how the USG "bailed out" those companies? Was it just by having them carry air mail, or was it actual stock purchases (like Government Motors)?
Yes the Unions were behind the Bailout, just like they were with GM,
One thing for sure the Unions did not put the money up to start the company.
Many an employer today is being ask to pay extra for health care, and match retirement pensions, many small companies are laying people off to reduce cost,
I put money on the line, worked far more than 40 hours, never had a paid vacation in my life, and have sleep where I worked. I had no paid health care, no paid days off, and have drawn less than the minimum wage...
I have seem many if my friends go broke, buying their job.
I am one of the guys who started a company, sleep in a car at the trade shows, shared rooms, no one game me a bail out.
The taxpayer, and stockholders have never been paid back for the GM Bailout..
And that is the facts. The Government and Unions are in bed with each other, and the taxpayers are getting the shaft., paying far more than they should.
