Pilots take on US Airways for escorting pilot out of Airport and threatening to arrest crew

The imbroglio was over a balky power component that the pilot wanted fixed before departing on a trans-Atlantic flight. The device could have eliminated all power on the flight. Before removing the pilot in question, two other pilots refused to fly the plane. Afterward three more pilots also refused to fly the aircraft.

Even if only half of the union's allegations are true, US Airway's behavior was appalling.
