    IMO they are also there to monitor pilots as well, at least secondarily as much as possible and report “irregularities” for the flight dept. to address. Sounds to me like an extension of a culture morphing back to a “the beatings will continue until morale improves” philosophy and ruling by intimidation. I guess if you aren’t willing to motivate your employees through positive culture including inspiration and competitive reward, then do it through a spy network and a Russian-style intimidation campaign.

    I used to think the “new” AA’s culture couldn’t actually become worse then the old one, but I was wrong. To employees, perception is reality and no company ever produced a competitive service product through the perception of the bullying and intimidation of their employees by their employees, let alone an industry leading one and if this is what it sounds like, it will simply end up another red flag that will be discussed AFTER the inevitable as something that should have been a strong clue. Regardless, I think word will get out resulting in a spike in F/A attrition and AA will also end up getting less desirable F/A candidates only exacerbating their service problems. Who would want to join such a work environment ? Certainly no one of quality who can do better elsewhere. I wonder if they’ve considered that such a situation might already be a product of the very problem of the present culture at AA and that it might also already be seen as undesirable by quality candidates hence this apparent problem ?

    Overall, I think they’re just trying to band-aid issues on the cheap and it won’t work. In fact, I think similar to issues of the past such as the uniform debacle, it will end up a counter-productive failure. But, the past seems to be AA’s future and so perhaps it’s time to let destiny run its course. The red flags are piling up.

    Caveat Emptor.

    Well apa was told by us air pilots what type of people us air management, but apa was bought off by parker for the unions support. Without union support the merge was not going to happen and us air only had max 2 years to survive alone. Apa in its wisdom chose parker and his management because they had a great reputation (sarcasm) and threw Horton and aa management to the wolves, granted they got millions for there trouble.
    Us air management ran us air into the ground and now they will do the same to american.
    Just a summary for those that only think nothing else except flow.
    Misery loves company and at AAG there is a shi+ load of company.

    Parker told APA what they wanted to hear, they believed it and then sold it to their pilots with the help of the creditors committee. The pilots especially got played and everyone but the employees got rich. But......that’s what happens when you let emotion overtake rationale. Sadly, pilots are predisposed to that and it’s in their DNA, i.e., they make the same mistakes repeatedly and thus are completely predictable making them fairly easy to manipulate. They are very poor students of history and proof of that are the those lining up for the flow yet again with a pocketful of expectations.

    History proves that for many, it will likely end up a saucerful of sorrow.
