Thank you for all the specific info -- deregulation is license to steal.
And, actually, unregulated capitalism is pretty much organized crime.
So -- what happens is they pretty much can paid twice for 30% of the seats.
But still don't understand how they decide that someone who shows up for
their seat on time and is seated gets bounced because someone who gets
there later and was perhaps the one "overbooked" then gets it?
Does anyone know WHO the guy was being bounced for .... a VIP?
Re the food, I think they pretty much turned it to garbage before the deregulation
came so no one really wanted it anymore.
Pilots did eventually very much get hurt in loss of pensions in some cases and
in drop in salaries. I think some of that happened as part of bargaining to keep
What I don't get is why labor -- and we are all labor -- thinks they have to get
government approval to form a union -- or worse, corporate approval.
They worked really hard to make the idea of UNIONS taboo for workers, but they
are united in pretty much every way possible -- up, down and sideways.
Thanks for the info!
