News From Your President

johnsonBased 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.

~~~~ NO NON-REV LEFT BEHIND ~~~

cabin

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.

NonRevLeftBehind@AMRRC.net

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.


Meetings with Mr. Parker

July 14, 2015 - “Crew News” Town Hall Meeting DFW HDQ

At the July 14th meeting Doug Parker was asked to grandfather in D2 Retirees, just as he grandfathered in retiree positive space employees. There seems to be a lot of “Level 8” retirees.

Parker replied; “If they have something that came way before us, had some kind of agreement with the company……”

Elise Eberwein then replied; “I don’t know how many 8’s are still out there but my view on this is that those employees worked for this company and its part of their compensation, and their agreement and they retired with that benefit so they’re going to keep it.”

These statements are significant because all retirees should be grand-fathered under this criterion!

Of the many retiree comments one said, “…they could care less about the regular worker bees that helped to build this company… so “they” are going to keep them….”

Another retiree comment, “We have contracts that state D2 and those should be honored too, and D2 was part of our retirement too.”

On Saturday, July 18th this video was posted on Facebook, however, late Saturday night, retirees were surprised when the video had been removed.

July 24, 2015 - Other Areas of Discussion

SABRE/AA Retiree Access to NRTP. Although an Agreement exists to provide the NRTP (Non-Revenue Travel Planner) option of Jetnet to approximately 500 Sabre Retirees with AA Travel Benefits, Sabre and American Airlines have not yet done so. AA has communicated that it does not yet have a definite date of when this option will be provided Sabre Retirees.


Would you like to ask Doug Parker a Question in person?

The next (3rd) Quarterly Earnings Meeting will be October, 2015. AMRRC will post the date and time, as soon as, the meeting is scheduled. Earnings are generally released early in the morning, and the “State of the Airline” is scheduled the same day.
