Philly Unions to Kill City's Biggest Airline

"With flight attendant sick calls almost three times higher than normal and abnormally high sick calls from ramp workers at Philadelphia, our network ground to a halt," US Airways chief executive officer Bruce R. Lakefield said in a recorded telephone message on a company hotline. "... So we canceled hundreds of flights, delayed thousands of bags, and irritated our passengers."


In a truly adorable show of naivety, Virginia Postrel writes:

If you hate your boss or just don't want to go to work, find another job. Don't deliberately ruin other people's holiday travel.

She just doesn't know how Philly unions work, does she? I can't wait to hear the whining about how tough it is on the working folk when USAirways finally DOES go belly up.
