Well, that’s not the way it works in the airline industry it appears. Now that so many U.S. carriers are back from the brink, and actually bringing in some solid profits, you’d expect executives to want to spread the money around. Alas, that’s not happening. Even though top dogs at the big carriers got hefty bonuses recently, the workers who made concessions when these companies were in bankruptcy court, or nearing bankruptcy, are out of luck. No plans to give them some money back, and few signs that work conditions will improve.

Should we be expecting companies to share?
