PAN AM PILOT REACTION TO SHUTDOWN

 PAN AM PILOT REACTION TO SHUTDOWN
 WASHINGTON, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statement was


issued today by Captain M. F. "Buz" Labbee, chairman of the Pan American World Airways pilots' Master Executive Council, a unit of the Air Line Pilots Association, in response to Pan American's shutdown:
 The loss of Pan Am is the low point in the history of air transportaion in the United States. Pan Am's name once was synonymous with international aviation. Now we are just the latest entry in the causalty list of airline deregulation.
 This has been a doubly bitter pill for Pan Am pilots and other employees to swallow because over the past ten years we have given concessions to the point where we were the lowest paid workers in our segment of the industry. We have watched as every last one of those concessionary dollars, taken out of our pockets, was squandered on ineffectual efforts to keep our company afloat. Pan Am was the victim of inept management and an indifferent government. I cannot help but think that if our management had been more astute and if our government had taken an active role in promoting and protecting our industry, Pan American would still be alive today.
