    advising American.  It is advising American Eagle.  That is two entirely different entities within AMR.  Two very separate pilots unions for example.

      I wasn't debating about which division of AMR Bain advised; I was noting the fact that Romney's Bain did the advising.

        ... "Romney's Bain" is Bain Capital. The company involved with American Eagle is Bain & Company (a management consulting firm). They have almost nothing to do with each other; Bain Capital was formed by former executives from Bain & Company (the Mittster among them), but the relationship between the two firms now doesn't extend beyond the name.

        Though Romney was in the far-distant past an exec at Bain & Company, "Romney's Bain" is Bain Capital, the invest-and-break-companies-into-pieces-for-profit business.

        Getting the facts right does matter.

      My son is a crew chief for American Eagle. Lord help me if I end up with two adult kids at home.
