Effectively, today is the last day that TWA will exist in any form.

Tomorrow, most ex-TWA employees will be off to other careers. All FA's will be furloughed. The mechanics have been broken up and spread out. The pilots are 70% (due to furlough or retirement) gone or soon to be.

Finally, lets let it end.
Have some dignity in death please.

Thank you.

Comments like those are why we all seem to hate each other. Have a little empathy for them and be glad you are still around. Just because the vocal ones on message boards are all we hear it does not mean all TWA people are bad. Imagine if it was happening to the "nAAtives" as they like to call us.

Hoping things finally turn around sometime soon...

Radicals who make posts like this do not belong on SJ's board.
I worked as a non-flying TWA employee for 30 years before I retired. The crew members I knew, Flight Deck and Cabin,were my friends, and they performed their duties in an exemplary manner.
To now read some of the self important rantings of those who were not even around back in the early days of this business makes me sick.
Even if you can forget the screwing of the people involved by the mega-AA and it's union minions, let's give some homage to fellow airman/women who flew the same skies as you.

TWAAlmostGone another hostile AAer. S/he won't even let TWAers leave in dignity. Has to be hostile even towards the dead. Not a good sign. I have been fortunate to run in to a lot of very nice AA people. I'd bet even AAers do not want him/her around.

L1011Ret-

Amen! We have found something to agree on after all. He/She does not represent AA, just a trouble maker fueling the fire!

That was very uncalled for and did nothing to help "letting it end". Not to worry though as soon as Jack sees it you're outta here. See ya! [Wink]
