AMERICAN AIRLINES AND THE ALLIED PILOTS ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCE
AGREEMENT ON EXTENDED LONG-HAUL FLYING

FORT WORTH, Texas – As part of their shared goal to position American Airlines to
compete effectively in the global air travel market, American and the Allied Pilots
Association (APA), the union representing American’s pilots, today announced they have
reached an Agreement to allow American Airlines to begin non-stop flights between
Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Indira Gandhi International Airport
(DEL) in New Delhi, India.
Service is scheduled to begin later this year, pending slot procurement.
Negotiations for acceptable slots are now underway with airport authorities in India.
The agreement further strengthens AA's global network and provides additional
long-haul flying opportunities for American pilots.
“This is another success for the Working Together process that has enabled us
to work collaboratively toward restoring American Airlines to sustained profitability,
improving shareholder returns and building financial stability, which benefits the
company, its employees and our customers,” said Gerard Arpey, Chairman and CEO,
American Airlines.
“We’re pleased AA has chosen to expand into the second-fastest growing air
travel market in the world,” said Captain Ralph Hunter, APA President. “We believe
American has to be a truly global airline to thrive over the long term, and this agreement
is a big step towards that goal.”

Also remember to bring the Febreeze and air freshner with you. After those flights those planes will be a bit "odorous" to say the least.

Hey, CRAAPA, what did you get in return for extending the crew day to 20 hours.

Certainly you must've got a guaranteed number of captain jobs.....nope.

Well, how about an agreement for at least a minimum guaranteed recall schedule.....nope.

What, oh, well why didn't you say so....wow, an extra box lunch per pilot.......sweeeeeeet deal!

Another CRAAPA negotiating success story!!
