Why Would Anyone Buy an Airline with These Pilots?

Whatever one may think of the American Airlines pilots' union and the pilots' particular grievances with regard to the termination of their contract due to the bankruptcy filing of their employer, this much is clear:  the union, and many of its member pilots, is committed to the destruction of its employer.  While walking through Love Field last night surrounded by passengers arriving or departing on the planes of American's most notable discount rival, I overheard numerous people discussing the AA pilots and their decision not to fly that airline and risk being stranded as a result of the pilots' game playing.

Yes, the pilots are committed to the destruction of their employer.  Passengers are currently taking note.  Any potential buyer of AA -- or any potential employer of these pilots -- would be wise to do likewise.
