I would like to personally thank Doug Parker and his management team for hosting a reception for almost 200 frequent flyers on November 5th in Phoenix. I think it was very commendable that they agreed to host this meeting knowing quite well that they would likely be facing difficult questions from a crowd who was likely less than enamored of US Airways.
We were very warmly received by Doug and his team, including Andrew Nocella, Donna Paladini and Fern Fernandez. We asked some difficult questions, and perhaps didn't get all the answers we were looking for, but I got the impression that the door was beginning to crack open for future dialog. I think it was significant that Doug agreed to take another look at the Choice Seats Policy as it relates to Preferred Members at some point looking forward.
I will be following up soon with Fern Fernandez at US, and look forward to hearing from our members regarding concerns and comments they would like to have addressed by US.
Again-on behalf of FFOCUS, a big THANK YOU to Doug Parker and US Airways!!
