The Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) and the United Airlines MEC (Master Executive Council) have created a website, GlennTilton.com, which calls for the removal of Glenn Tilton as United's CEO. The website said, "As professional pilots, we believe in accountability. Glenn Tilton, Chairman, CEO, and President of United Airlines, has failed all of us… costing shareholders, employees, and the travelling public billions of dollars."
Is Glenn Tilton to blame for United's troubles? The website says he is. "To Glenn and his staff, responsibility for United’s predicament belongs to everyone and everything other than themselves... Their excuses include high fuel prices, increasing costs of security, more competition, and stronger regulation, and they see themselves as victims of these uncontrollable factors. It just isn’t right, and it just isn’t true. These same factors influence every airline, and all the others are handling challenging conditions much better than United."
Or are the pilots just upset with management? Leave your opinion; please comment!
