    It kind of plays into the first video on the page you linked 😉

    But in all seriousness, there is probably a clause that states that one is not allowed to post insulting messages about the carrier through social media, and because he is so high profile, they are using him to send a message and neuter the social media campaigns of the unions before they can really get going.

    I find it funny how they explicitly mention that ID travel is suspended 🙂

    If the employee violated the social media policy in place, then they should be called out for it, especially if it’s about your own employer.

    He has a pretty cool site… Any petitions or anything else we can sign or an address to tweet to support him?

    What exactly is wrong with enforcing a contract? I’m sure AA employees wouldn’t be happy is AA just said, “no more travel benefits.” This is the same situation flipped around.

    The AA way always trying to harass the employees, while being the first to break the rules themselves……

    Hey Seth AA puts themselves in the media on their own so we have the right to make fun and say things about them so long as the statements are not false. Plus they can write hundreds of rules but the law is what prevails in America

    Gailen put himself in a very, very vulnerable position here with the content and tone of his posting. I have no idea what the internal history between him and AA on similar matters is, but he’s certainly way out on a limb here.

    Having worked for AA for over 10 years, I can assure you that this kind of thing is against the rules. I was long gone before “social media” became common so I’m sure there are even additional rules about that by now, and in fact, I see the letter cites a “media policy” violation, now that I look at it again.

    That’s not to say that I am condoning what AA is doing, just stating facts as I know them.

    I’m a 100% Gailen fan and thoroughly enjoy his website, humor and Jetiquette posts. I do, however, think Matt and Marshall Jackson have totally valid points above. When I first watched the video, I do have to honestly say I thought he might have put a toe over “the line” this time.

    I truly wish him the best outcome. Hopefully it ends up being a formal reprimand in his file.

    To clarify: “Hopefully it ends up being JUST a reprimand in his file and nothing more.”

    It’s just a matter of corporate bullying. Trying to set an example of Gailen in hopes that the rank and file will fall in order. Nothing new, especially in such a tumultuous time for AA. What Gailen did was just reading the “Term Sheet” presented to the Flight Attendants by AA, albeit facetiously. Don’t know Gailen personally but if he is bitter and nasty as “her” said previously, I can understand why.

    Maybe it walks a fine line…but looks to me AA set themselves up for ridicule…Don’t want to be made fun of? Then don’t be corporate management boneheads!

    I’m totally with you Seth. I love Gailen and Jettiquette, and have found him to be delightful in person. He’s been doing this a long time, why would AA freak out now? Something very fishy there.

    Hope all goes well for Gailen.

    Hope all is well for Gailen…surely they realize its comedy. I laugh quite a bit at his silly videos, but I still fly AA.
