Completely agree

BUT

I don't think it's so much 'reckless irresponsibility' as it is trying to figure out some scheme to get around LIFO (which won't be possible without an attractive voluntary separation plan similar to Southwest or other US carriers) without it costing them buckets of money -- and throwing away MORE buckets of money in the process. The government dollars funding the boondoggle probably figure in there somewhere.

But perhaps it's the same thing.
