Pilots strike, airline closes…any questions?

The AFL-CIO is blathering blogging on the story that Spirit Airlines is allegedly threatening that, if its pilots strike, the airline will close:

Spirit Airlines is threatening to close its operations in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., if its 500 pilots go on strike. The Air Line Pilots (ALPA) has said its members will strike at the end of a 30-day cooling-off period if they don’t get a fair contract.

Somehow this is news? Apparently, the AFL-CIO would rather fly in a plane without a pilot?

[Never mind, don’t answer that.]

“I bring reason to your ears, and, in language as plain as ABC, hold up truth to your eyes.” Thomas Paine, December 23, 1776
