The preparations for the Airline Spring Prom (this year's theme: "Off We Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder!") are turning really really mean.
First Continental told United it would not be seen dead in its company, thank you very much. That was mean. Now the pilots at United Airlines are saying they think US Airways is a big looooser.
Here's what the United Airlines council of the Air Line Pilots Association says today. Really, they are making no effort whatsoever to be nice.
Just yesterday, the entire Air Line Pilots Association, representing 56,000 pilots at 41 airlines in the U.S. and Canada, put out a separate mean statement quoting the United union leader saying the United boss, Glenn Tilton, is a big loooooser making a "shameful grab" for his "obscene compensation" ($10.3 million) while producing "abysmal numbers and operational deficiencies" at United.
Kids, kids! Can't we just "slip the surly bonds of earth" and just keep raising fares and GET ALONG, gosh darn it all?!
