LargeCanine: Do not be alarmed. This has nothing whatsoever to do with the unions.
jonjr215: Good headline subby. Well played...
skinink: American is so bad. Took a AA flight to Europe and plane looked worn down, and although the cabin crew was nice, they had no problem complaining about their work situation within earshot of the passengers. At least my flight left on time. Also the amenities were skimpy.
vudukungfu: LargeCanine: Do not be alarmed. This has nothing whatsoever to do with the unions.Or the TSA.
Gyrfalcon: vudukungfu: LargeCanine: Do not be alarmed. This has nothing whatsoever to do with the unions.Or the TSA.They're not allowing wrenches on planes now?!?
Fuggin Bizzy: "The clamps were used on only 47 of our 102 Boeing 757 airplanes."Whew, that's a relief. Seats may come loose on just 46% of AA's 757s. That's less than half!
Pray 4 Mojo: I went to a Catholic boys school.I LOL-ed.
95629: This is what happens when you have billions in the bank yet declare bankruptcy anyways to screw you workers. During the screw job you layoff thousands of mechanics and have your planes start being maintained in China.Is anyone surprised at all that the planes, and operation, are falling apart? Nothing to do with unions or employees, it all has to do with the fact that management is making millions by squeezing every last drop out of the company at the company, employee, and customer's expense.
Bedstead Polisher: I'm flying with them this weekend. As long as I get there and back in one piece, I can stand the whole flight.
95629: Bedstead Polisher: I'm flying with them this weekend. As long as I get there and back in one piece, I can stand the whole flight.And you're the reason why people get excited when they get any more service from an airline than getting there and back in one piece.But your ticket was cheap so its all good right??
FormlessOne: Dear American Airlines,"Faulty" is not the same as "improperly installed." Use of the word, "faulty", implies that blame falls on the manufacturer of the clamp - that, somehow, the clamp itself is at fault or defective in some way. Instead, your technicians improperly installed otherwise hale and useful clamps. I say "your technicians" because when you state "that the issue "does not seem to be tied to any one maintenance facility or one workgroup," well, that's business-speak for "we have no one but ourselves to blame, and we don't want to do that, so blame distributed is blame diffused" and it's pretty clear that it's AA's fault this happened.In the future, please do your God-damned jobs.Thanks,Your customers
