An American Airlines (AAMRQ.PK) merger with US Airways (LCC -1.4%) may not occur during bankruptcy unless pilot groups from the carriers agree on interim contract terms, American’s pilot union warns. If an accord is not reached “in the very near future, in all likelihood there will be no merger before American Airlines exits restructuring,” the Allied Pilots Association says.

    Get the deal done. AA will become more and more insignificant as DAL and UAL grow. The "four corners" plan just won't work. Expect more and more AA corporate customers will jump to DAL or UAL. Tom Horton cannot lead AA, only Doug Parker can save AA.
    If AA doesn't do the deal, expect UAL or DAL to tie up with US Airways. That would be a daggar in AA's heart; with Chapter 11 or 7 a few years in the future.
    Make a fair deal between AA and USA pilots and move forward before it is too late to save AA.

    Get the deal done is right!

     

    If these pilots mess this up, I'm gonna just die. I hate unions and the whole negative mentality that infects peoples brains like a cancer. Sorry, I'm venting. After 26 years in this industry, I'm in the minority, but I have grown to hate the inherent negativity of unions and how they impede progress at every step.

    As Bob Crandall said recently unless AMR pilots reach an agreement with all the pilots at America West and U.S. Air there will be NO merger. Cant anybody remember that U.S. Air tried to merg with UAL,DAL and CAI and was thrown into a garbage bag??
