Allied Pilots Association: Three Questions for American Airlines Management
FORT WORTH, Texas (June 11, 2019) — On June 12, American Airlines CEO Doug Parker and the rest of the executive team at American Airlines are scheduled to "face" investors in a virtual annual shareholders meeting. The pilots of American Airlines have three questions that we hope investors will ask Mr. Parker and his team:
1) Are you still committed to finalizing a new contract with the Allied Pilots Association by the amendable date of Jan. 1, 2020, as you have previously stated?
2) What specific actions has your team taken to improve the culture at American Airlines and what steps still remain?
3) Why do you think American Airlines lags its peers both operationally and financially?
Founded in 1963, the Allied Pilots Association — the largest independent pilots union in the United States — is headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas. APA represents the 15,000 pilots of American Airlines, including several hundred pilots on full-time military leave of absence serving in the armed forces. The union's website is AlliedPilots.org. American Airlines is the world's largest passenger airline.
