Testimonials

Mel, LGA

Hey Rob, I retired end of November and totally forgot to let you know. Your program has been a God send to my 35 year career with AA. Wish it would have been developed from the first day I stepped on property. I hope all the new hires and current pilots at AA can see what most of us have seen and take for granted. The ease or improvement of the job because of your personal innovation. Thank you.

John, RET

I remember some of what you went through to keep Litesabre relevant and the innovation that came out of those efforts. My son has been with Delta for a year now, and was awarded an extremely bad schedule for next month through PBS. As we talked about how to improve it, I saw how difficult and time-consuming it was compared to using Litesabre, and just wanted let you know again how much I appreciated your work. I hope all those AA guys realize how easy they have it using Litesabre. Thanks!

Ray, LGA

wish AA's IT dept could work half as well as your product. Litesabre is a fantastic product and keeps on getting better. It is worth every penny that we pay and I would not think of not having it in my flight bag. But unfortunately the powers to be say its time for me to retire so I won't be able to use your product anymore..I believe I'm paid up till April 26. So once agin I thank you for making such a great product which has really made dealing with this dinosaur scheduling system so much easier. Thanks again and please cancel out my subscription

Brian, DFW

Your apps over the years have been an absolute kit bag essential. I use "My Trip" every leg, your "Trips" for bidding and "Autotrade" to improve my schedule and life not to mention my paycheck bottom line. Would hate to live without them. You deserve every penny!

Dick, DCA

Retired 1 AUG!! Last flight was MIA turn outta DCA. 0733L Dept left at 1100!!!! Scheds clueless, Litesabre goes off as my family and I are walking out the door. Got couple more hours sleep thx to LS!! Just one more example of how LS improves QOL. You've been fantastic! Can't think of much use for LS now....almost hurts to cnx but please cancel my subscription. Thanks!!!

James, ORD

Ah geez, makes sense. Sorry for the trivial question, but appreciate the quick response and THANK YOU for LiteSabre. I’m sure you hear it enough, but I don’t know what I would do without it.

Brian, CLT

Thank you Rob for dramatically improving my operational life at AA. LiteSabre was one of the best tools I have had in my 34 year career at AA. Keep up the great work!

Ted, LAX

LiteSabre you have been friend for many years. Helping me navigated through the web of AA confusion. Made my life easier. Sadly I must leave you. I retired on September 1. It has been a great ride, you have been a valuable team member. Appreciate everything you done for me.

Steve, CLT

Rob, I just retired this month November, that is the only reason I have canxed my subscription. I have been working for PI, US, and now AA. SKED to American was foreign to me. Someone suggested Lite Sabre to me about 2.5 years ago. It was an absolutely great place to go for all the info I needed to make this all work. I don't know which of the apps helped me more. The co info app was the bomb, letting me know what the co refused to tell me, depart delays, a/c swaps, canxed flts, ECT.... All of the features were invaluable to me. Thank you for making Lite Sabre available to the pilot group. This kept me from having to relearn DECS and the entries for work related items. I say this because in 1976 I was a ticket agent for a commuter airline and we used sabre and DECS at the time, so 43 years later I was still having to use this horrible system for work! Thanks again and good luck guys!

John, LGA

So far the Auto trade thing is working great. I like the fact that I can set all the choices right from my phone. I hate thinking about this stuff while I'm at home. Thanks.

John, LGA

Finally... what CCI should be. Thanks for all your hard work.

Mike, MIA

I've been using LiteSabre from the beginning and would like to add my wholehearted recommendation, too. One feature that hasn't been mentioned here which I really like is the ability to build HISEP entries off-line, re-order them as necessary and then upload them to DECS. Deciding to insert an additional entry is no problem now!

Rob just keeps adding features, so the whole concept is a continually evolving one with a lot of nice touches. For example, the phone app has hot-linked phone numbers for dispatch and the layover hotel - a neat, simple time-saver. And the calendar sync through Google calendar is fantastic!

One last point -- when I have dropped Rob a line pointing out a bug or suggesting an improvement, he responds quickly and gets right on it. Fantastic!
