    At least he recognizes a problem exists... how long will it take for the solution/fix to emerge remains the answer.

    the jury is very much still out- hopefully it will return a strongly favorable verdict at some point.....

    Sure....A problem exists, the question is whether he recognizes all of the problems, or are some of the "problems" simply the way he likes things to be done?

    Interesting....things such as TODs are a "problem" for us but something that UA [Jeffie & Co.] probably like.

    Regardless of whether or not they have a full grasp on the issues, it's heartening to see that they have finally, publically, recognized there are problems. The fifth step is acceptance after all. I wonder what anger, bargaining and depression looked like in Chicago?

    The new United has proven that loyalty means nothing to them.

    A monthly magazine is not the best forum to find current comments and analysis.

    Mr. Smisek's presentation at the DB Aviation and Transportation Conference next week will be much more insightful.

    Wait, you mean their dismal operational performance isn't one of the changes I'm supposed to like?

    Too bad he couldn't pre-apologize for the computer systems outage
