Pilots meandered in and out over the weekend, Wartofsky said on Saturday. “We’ve lost only one aircraft, which was moving away anyway. The rest are all coming home, and new pilots and aircraft are coming in. Our pilots understand and respect the objectives of this effort, however temporarily inconvenient it was. There is real dialogue now on real issues,” he said.

Stirring the pot a bit can help attract attention to the issues and get everyone talking. “That’s how you make change.”
