the reason aa has the worst on time record is because of the idiots in the tower not to mention poor moral. planes go out dirty and they still run late. face it american employees don,t care anymore. the tower closes the ramp because ramp employees will use any excuse to get overtime, so if it drizzles and you know someone in the tower they will give you overtime and close the ramp. hey lets close the ramp its snowing in new york.


American's management has brought this "poor morale" on itself. EVERY EMPLOYEE GROUP that is unionized is now in mediation because management refuses to bargain in good faith. And the executives continue to award themselves huge bonuses. What an example !
