By Timothy Leee, vice president of Legal and Public Affairs for the Center for Individual Freedom, arguing that US Airways would essentially be bailing out American Airlines’ unions and that this is not a good thing:

The alternative is to allow American the opportunity to right the ship and carve out a new, mutually-beneficial agreement with its employees. Concessions will need to be made by both management and labor, and it will necessary for American Airlines’ bankruptcy proceedings to run its course.

The Big Labor alternative to repeat the unsustainable cycle will merely prolong the misery at the expense of employees and consumers.
