Bad Technology Group at AA

As a contractor at AA I can tell you their technology departments are the worst managed groups of all the airlines. There are no real architects or planners, and the IT managers I worked with are disorganized and abusive. They promote the worst... —  read more

Don't think you're safe just yet

Look at what's happening in Australia. Qantas is furloughing 2,500 people once again and we might be right behind. Depending on how the whole Delta variant thing continues to develop, we might be seeing more and more of our planes grounded once... —  read more

Our competitors

They all seem to be more efficient than AA but more importantly they actually fire poorly performing employees and managers. In 20 years we’ll probably still be here but we will just be irrelevant compared to others. I’m so glad I’m getting out soon... —  read more

Don't wait to be laid off

I've started looking for a new job about a month ago and I finally managed to get something I'm happy enough with to leave this place. No, it's not in another airline (the situation is bad all around) and it's not even in this industry but it's a... —  read more

There is no going back to normal

Don't be naive and think that things will go back to normal any time soon. We are at least five years away from things going back to pre-pandemic levels, if even then! Things have changed too much. It will take a long time for people to fully relax... —  read more
