What American’s Pilots are Being Told About Their Post-Merger Future

Terry Maxon published the American Airlines pilots union Q&A on the memorandum of understanding they’ve approved relating to how pilots would be treated in a potential merger with US Airways.

Terry’s summary is better:

Q. Why haven’t American’s pilots been told what’s in the memo?

A. We can’t. We promised.

Q. When will we be informed?

A. When the airlines let us.

Q. When will it take effect?

A. When we merge.

Q. When will we merge?

A. Don’t know. …

Q. Who’ll represent the pilots after a merger?

A. Probably us. We’re bigger.

You can of course read the real memo.
