What about Cliff and Margie and Claudette in the SFO Ambassadors Club? Are they being part-timed too?
One of my favorite agents, Rudy, got sick of all the passenger abuse last year and went over to cargo. I wonder what happens over there---TWA cargo has already moved in with AA cargo at SFO. Another favorite Agent, Ada, was one of the last recipients of TWA's award program for job excellence (before the buyout)--she got ten grand from TWA, I believe. Hopefully the check didn't bounce.
What about all our friends on the ground at SJC?? My buddy Steve Duncan, who is the cream of the crop, and everyone else. I suppose the same thing is happening to all of them too.
I guess the only "safe" agents are the ones in STL. All the outstations are screwed. The mechanics/rampers will be next. AA only needs the MCI overhaul base and some of the STL guys--enough to keep a hub going. Everyone at outstations like SFO, LAX and from what I hear, JFK as well, will probably be getting the same treatment.
It appears AA erected a Potomkin Village for Carty's appearance before Congress. Now we're getting a peek behind the facade and it ain't pretty.
