    Doesn't make sense unless someone has a general grudge with AA...

    Although if they are company cars (rather than just employee vehicles) then maybe someone is trying to tell AA that they should be spending their money more wisely during this period. :)

    From the video that's linked to the piece, it appears that the vehicles are of all different types, shapes, sizes, and both import and domestic makes. And the people walking around appear to be dressed as if worker-level folks or general public, rather than AA managers in suits and ties, so I doubt these were company cars. . . .

    Yeah but it could still be that AA reimburses folks to some extent, as many companies do.

    Not that it matters though, vandalizing someone's car because of the company they work for -- or at all -- isn't cool, period. You don't mess with somebody's vehicle. :)

    Just wonder if an employee went "postal" -- if so the good news is no one was hurt and the damage will be covered by comprehensive insurance.... except, that is. for the deductibiles

    Well yes, but moving away from AA per se, the insurance line of thought tends to ring hollow with me. For one thing the deductibles you mention, for another not everyone has comprehensive, and third, for those who do the cost is eventually going to hit the loss pool and the premiums everyone pays. Now, going even further OT from insurance to law and politics (but at least keeping an IATA code!), I continue to think SIN has the right idea on how to handle vandalism!!!!

    Indeed, not everyone has comprehensive and worst case it's an inconvenience since you still need to get your car repaired, probably get a rental and all that, and even if you're reimbursed it's still a pain.

    That's all we need, MORE disgruntled AA employees! It isnt enough that employees have to worry about the futures of their jobs and pensions, now they have to worry about the security of their cars!
