Rumors flying around that there will soon be an announcement about possible recalls in first part of the year. Can anyone confirm this?

Hope so, it is lonely @ the bottom.:nuts:

Flying has tapered off a bit compared to July/August when the reserves were flying 85 to 95 hours.

Now I am seeing 50 to 55 reserve hours and no immediate need more recalls unless AA knows something we dont..(Large groups of early retirements, keeping -80s flying instead of parking, etc)

I did hear they were pulling a few '80's out of the desert. Maybe they decided to pull a few more for kicks and grins.

I'd watch December 1st to see how many retire. After that, I'd bet they're in for the long haul.

Last chance to lock-in on August market prices for B Plan.

Rumblings of recalls;

1. Large group of potential retirements on Dec 1st.

2. Gearing up for 3 737 deliveries a month with new rumor of keeping the 80s flying.

Time will tell...

Of course, with the contract scheduling proposals made by management, it looks more like they want to get rid of about 1000-1500 present working pilots.

Almost 2000 pilots still on furlough at AA.

Is a Mid 1999 pilot still furloughed?
It depends on whether the pilot is "red" or "blue." If they were former TWA ("red") then, yes, they're still furloughed.

If they were nAAtives ("blue") then, no, they aren't furloughed (never were) and they have many staplees ("red") behind them as their cushion.

As a red guy, looking in, it's going to be quite a while before AA ever hires off the street again. So, if your thinking of ever working for AA you had better be real comfortable where you are at right now to wait this mess out.

...and upgrade to captain may be non-existent!!
Not true at all. American has a very senior pilot group. If you are 1 of the first hired when hiring resumes there will be atleast a 10 year gap between you and and the guy hired in front of you. Upgrade may be 20 years for him but only 8 for you.

You're dead on.

I think the SWA clown was referring to their newhires.

Oh pinch me, recall finally. I wouldn't concentrate on working for AA it is the Mecca of pilot/mgmt dysfunction.
