Article is dead on—US airlines suck big time. Much of that is due to heavy union involvement.
American flight attendants, on the other hand, are career union hacks. My daughter (who fits the Asian attendant model) was flown to Atlanta last year to interview with Delta. Thought she had a real chance as she speaks two languages, is superb with kids and a licensed social worker. Practically everyone at the interview were applicants from lesser airlines. One even told her that homos got hiring preferences not just with Delta, but all airlines. Too much gender imbalance in the industry and homos, of course, never knocked up female flight attendants.

We need a debt neutral tax code.
