Did Unions Kill American Airlines Business?

(BrightCitizen.com)  Did unions and organized labor kill the American Airlines business and force them to go bankrupt?

Apparently so, as American pays $6.8 billion in labor costs annually.  That is 600M USD more than any other airline pays.

We must seriously evaluate the power of unions in our business if we are to have companies stay in business and continue to provide the services they have committed to.

This could be proof that unions have got everyone paying for their perks.  More importantly the non-union competition is what may have taken American Airlines down.
