“State of the Airline” Meeting
Release of the 3rd Quarter 2015 Earnings
4333 Amon Carter Blvd.
Ft. Worth, TX – Cafeteria Atrium
AMRRC is pleased to announce all Retirees are invited to attend the State of the Airline Meetings every quarter. After the earnings for the 3rd Quarter are announced you will have the opportunity to ask Mr. Parker a question.
We are especially asking those who reside in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area to attend the meeting. This is a great opportunity for you to ask Mr. Parker, Mr. Kirby or Ms. Eberwein any questions you may have about your retiree benefits from AA including questions about the changeover to Retiree Jetnet. AMRRC cannot accomplish its goals without the support of each and every Retiree participating in these events. It is important that we let Mr. Parker know that the retirees of American Airlines have always been an important part of American Airlines.
News From Your President
Based on my observation of the changes to the travel benefits, American is taking the best of both programs away and giving the employees and retirees the remaining benefits.
Clearly, AA provided superior travel benefits to their employees and retirees than did Legacy US Airways. It’s disappointing to see the erosion of the benefits that we worked for decades to enjoy.
We will keep you informed of upcoming changes.
Effective August 18, 2015, more fares are now eligible for the AA20 Discount. This applies to newly created bookings only. The AA20 discount cannot be applied to already existing bookings that did not previously qualify. Fares can be purchased on www.aa.com are now eligible including; Net SAAvers, Web Fares, First Special Fares, such as, those with ticket designators like WAUP/ LAUP/ PAUP, commonly known as, YUP and JUP Fares.
Some fares may not price with the additional AA20 ticket designator. If the itinerary will not price; contact We-Fly-AA. Place the booking on hold as allowed by aa.com. It is not required that the booking be created on aa.com and if preferred, the reservation may be made directly with a Reservations Agent.

US Airways to Operate Last Flight
October 16-17, 2015.
US 1939 will operate on October 16 from Philadelphia to Charlotte, then on to Phoenix
and San Francisco and returning back to Charlotte arriving on October 17.
US Airways is planning Flight 1939 to mark the end of its run in the skies. It will be the last flight before the US Airways name disappears for good (except on planes that have yet to be repainted) in the merger with American Airlines.
The last flight will include some nostalgic touches and the airline selected the flight number because 1939 was the year that US Airways forerunner “All American Aviation” got its start — in Pittsburgh.
Tragically the last US Airways flight will not touch down in Pittsburgh where it all started; the city that gave US Airways its start and built a $1 billion terminal specifically for them.
If you or a family member was left behind and the flight left with open seats, please let AMRRC know. We are collecting this data because AA management is not aware that this is occurring and we want to provide them with this information.
It is not the Agent’s fault when this occurs, but rather, because of the very strict D (minus) 10 minute boarding rule directive issued by the Company. The agent MUST close the Terminal Door to the Jet-bridge 10 minutes prior to the departure time of the flight.
AMRRC has established a new EMAIL Address exclusively for you to send us the flight information when this occurs.
Please include a copy of the list, OR provide the (1) Flight Number, (2) Date, (3) From/To, (4) Departure Time , (5) how many seats were open. You can obtain this information at: Mobi.aa.com. Please also include your name, as sometimes the sender’s email address is not reflective of your name.
