IAD - Anyone up for celebrating Smisek's resignation from UA

I'm not a UA guy but that D-Bag is one of the main reasons I left CO 10 or 11 years ago for AA.

So do you UA guys (and anyone else) want to gather in the Reston Town Center or Herndon to lift some glasses to Smisek's termination?

Friday the 11th is what they are doing in SFO? Does that work for anyone in Reston or Herndon?

He didn't resign - he was fired and may be facing federal bribery charges.

I thought I saw resigned on the Yahoo article I read but either way the end result is the same

IIRC some job application forms ask "have you ever resigned after being told that you would be fired?"

Generally, in Washington, the code words are "spending more time with his family."

For all the naive people out there, your succinct post sums up the situation in one sentence.

Nothing Personal Jeff, Just Business.

If y'all really don't know what has happened here, listen to Donald Trump a bit more..........He will explain the ways of the business world!
