With the pilots voting no, what next?

The American Airlines pilots voted no to a new contract and now the future of the bankrupt carrier's labor relations are even more unclear.

Star-Telegram business editor Steve Kaskovich and reporter Andrea Ahles took a few minutes on Thursday morning to chat about what comes next for American.

The Pilots deserve to have their contracts terminated under 1113. AA should impose labor terms that are similar to other airlines of size. The Pilots should apologize to their brothers and sisters for not believing AA was going to file Chapter 11 because the Pilot demands are inconsistent with the labor agreements of other carriers, despite the rhetoric from the APA. The fact is APA has been radicalized for years and they deserve what they get.

For the record, I do not work for AA and I am a brother from the IAM. I worked for Eastern Airlines and lost my job on 1/19/91 thanks to similar unrealistic demands. Time to pay the piper APA.


Great commentary. Your model kind of looks cheesy though. You guys need better models in your videos. Go to my site, I'll hook you up with better models at a discount in exchange for a plug!


What's next is the pilots are going to see the judge on the 15th. And I don't think they are going to like the results. But there's no revote at this point. They have made their arrogant bed and now they can lay in it!
