American Airlines pilots, represented by the Allied Pilots Association (APA), ratified a new four-year agreement this week.
The new contract will deliver more than US$9 Billion of compensation and quality-of-life benefits to American’s 15,000 pilots.
“Today is a really great day for our pilots and airline,” said American’s CEO Robert Isom. “This agreement will help American immediately expand our pilot training capacity to support under-utilised aircraft and future flying and provide our pilots with more opportunities to progress in their careers. We’re grateful for the company and APA negotiating teams who worked diligently and collaboratively to reach an agreement we’re proud of and one our pilots deserve. And, I would like to personally thank and congratulate Capt. Ed Sicher, APA President, for his superb leadership throughout the negotiating process.”
