This was just posted: There are two points here.

Thoughts???? I cannot believe that this can get any worse than it has already gotten. The timing of this is all wrong and obtuse. Management and Unions are to blame for this one. I feel bad for all the UA employee's and Express companies that have to suffer for this.... Godspeed and Tailwinds may the settlement come quick to protect us all!!!

I think this is the final nail for the United coffin. I really hope a resolution comes quickly. The industry can't take another black-eye of this magnitude.
