This airline is grateful for his extensive contributions
by Gerard Arpey

This airline is grateful for his extensive contributions
and we will miss his friendship and support.
We extend our deepest sympathies to the Casey family on its personal loss.
- Gerard Arpey

Markets that don't work we're going to step away from.
- Gerard Arpey

Our planes should be full, which among other things
means we have a golden opportunity...

The executive moves we are announcing today will strengthen
American for the long-term future and reflect well
on the depth of the Company's management team.
- Gerard Arpey

We continued the hard work of integrating TWA,
because at that time we still thought an efficient connecting hub in St.
Louis could be a profitable addition to our network.
- Gerard Arpey

We need to take excellent care of our customers,
and do so at a profit.
- Gerard Arpey

One of our most difficult realizations was that -
in the course of two years -
a connecting hub in St.
Louis had gone from something we thought we needed
to something we could no longer afford.
- Gerard Arpey

Our Fly Smart philosophy is about investing only on
those points of differentiation that pay for themselves,
that earn a revenue premium commensurate with what
it costs us to provide that product or service.
- Gerard Arpey

Just to cover the increase in fuel costs over the past two years,
American would have had to raise fares nearly $75 per round-trip ticket.
During this time period, our average fare increased by only $15.
- Gerard Arpey

First, we have to lower our costs to levels that are more competitive.
This will prevent the lower-cost airlines from pushing
us out of the markets we want to serve.
We've made great progress on this front,
but we need to keep pushing.
- Gerard Arpey

These are times of unprecedented challenge and change in the airline industry,
and the appointments we are announcing today will put
American in an even stronger position to continue the
substantial progress that has already been made under
the tenets of our Turnaround Plan.
- Gerard Arpey

Despite the painful changes we have had to make,
we continue to believe in the St.
Louis market.
And we are hoping to add flights, in a careful way,
as the economics of our business improve and the demands
of the traveling public in St.
Louis become clear.
- Gerard Arpey

But I definitely see us playing a major role in St.
Louis in the years to come.
We already provide service to 95 percent of the markets St.
Louis travelers visit the most.
And we're adding capacity in some of the most important markets.
- Gerard Arpey

That doesn't mean you have to have the lowest costs
in the industry to succeed.
But you need to make sure the activities and product
attributes that increase your costs above the other
guy bring in at least that much more in revenue,
and hopefully more.
- Gerard Arpey

Second, we have to make the most of the strengths we have,
the amenities that many of our competitors cannot replicate.
But again, those advantages won't mean much if we don't
do a great job with the basics of our business.
- Gerard Arpey

However, the economics of our business continued to deteriorate.
We barely escaped bankruptcy a year ago,
and in the aftermath of that escape we had to make
some even tougher decisions.
- Gerard Arpey

Put on your own oxygen mask first.
- Airline companies

of Saturn are composed entirely of lost airline luggage.
- Mark Russell

Airline travel is hours of boredom interrupted by moments of stark terror.

I have to say that flying on Air Force One sort of
spoils you for coach on a regular airline.
- Ron Reagan

The guest gets at least as much service with us as
with some established airline,
if not even more.
And at by far a favourable price.
Thus the passengers remain gladly with us.
- Niki Lauda

Juan Tripp was a friend.
Good name for an airline man, huh? Juan Tripp after another?
- Fay Wray

As the head of security for an airline,
I can't ask my passengers to risk their lives and jump on a terrorist.
This is why we need air marshals on every flight.
- Isaac Yeffet

Running an airline is a normal job.
Racing is more.
- Niki Lauda

Let me be very honest and just say that if any airline
would let me take the violin and the laptop on board
I would fly that airline all the time.
- Lara St.
John

Americans have an abiding belief in their ability to
control reality by purely material means...
airline insurance replaces the fear of death with the
comforting prospect of cash.
- Cecil Beaton

I had some airline stock, but the airlines tanked.
I didn't have a lot of money in them,
though.
- Mickey Gilley

We've got fuel prices coming down and good travel numbers coming out,
so it's not surprising airline stocks are going up.
- Andrew Sullivan

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline.
It helps if you have some kind of a football team,
or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.
- Frank Zappa

One very clear impression I had of all the Beautiful
People was their prudence.
It may be that they paid for their own airline tickets,
but they paid for little else.
- James Brady

The alliance with air Berlin is attractive for me.
I can use the whole sales network of the air Berlin
and 24 percent of my own airline at air Berlin sold.
- Niki Lauda

I don't enjoy traveling in America.
I don't like the food, the cars.
It is not exotic enough.
It all tastes a bit like airline food.

The FAA has never and will never have enough resources
to completely monitor the airlines.
- Wayne Williams

I technically have two last names, which is a lot of
fun when you're making airline reservations.
- Mackenzie Astin

Check bags are fun.
I just make sure there won't be anything illegal in
my check bag which is forbidden at a cabin of a plane.
Just leaving things like scissors and such out of my
carry-on things in order to avoid troubles with some certain airline,
y'know.
- Kerry King

Many of the critics today get airline tickets,
hotel accommodation, bags, beautiful photographs,
gifts and other expenses paid by the distributors,
and then are supposed to write serious articles about the movie.
- Wim Wenders

In 1975 I decided that there was no future in flying
(airline jobs were impossible to get,
and who wants a job where you are judged only by seniority?)
and headed off to grad school.
- W. Richard Stevens

The whole world loves American movies,
blue jeans, jazz and rock and roll.
It is probably a better way to get to know our country
than by what politicians or airline commercials represent.
- Billy Joel

So I've seen life as one long learning process.
And if I see - you know, if I fly on somebody else's
airline and find the experience is not a pleasant one,
which it wasn't in - 21 years ago, then I'd think,
well, you know, maybe I can create the kind of airline that I'd like to fly on.
- Richard Branson

list five things you are grateful for.

have chosen ME to be a conduit for Infinite Love.

is a gift beyond my own understanding.

is now in my life causes an ever greater abundance

With zero-based gratitude,
we would be grateful for everything we had each day -
regardless of whether it was more or less than yesterday.
With zero-based gratitude, I can be grateful for all the people,
the love, the food, the shelter, the services,
the health, that I am blessed with today,
regardless of what I had yesterday.
With zero-based gratitude,
I can be grateful each day for the gift of life itself.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is magnificent - just as it comes.
Life has no need for fancy clothes, or lipstick.
Life is no pig.
Our life is the greatest gift of all creation.
When we are unhappy with life -
when we are shocked by the stock market,
or dismayed by our choice of political candidates,
let us not lash out in anger.
But also, let us not try to pretty up life
with some lipstick and some party clothes.
See life clearly - no rose colored glasses -
and then CHOOSE to love life.
CHOOSE to be happy, be joyful, be grateful,
be forgiving of everyone and of every act
we believe has hurt us.
Life just "IS."
We get to CHOOSE our relationship with life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

So you are grateful.
