Pilots, American still talking, but no deal is in place

In a negotiating update to members on Sunday, pilot union negotiators said that there are only a "handful" of issues still being worked on with American Airlines but they hope to have a contract agreement some time this week.

"Over the past four days, we have finalized contract language to the point that there are only a handful of open paragraphs still being worked.  The remaining points which have not been agreed to by the parties involve final language for an industry pay-parity adjustment, furlough protection, and parameters for regional feed aircraft.  Our goal is to reach an agreement on these points and present a final product to the APA Board of Directors at some point this week," the message said.

Previously, American had stated they wanted a pilot agreement to be considered by the Allied Pilots Association's board of directors by last Thursday, but that date came and went without a deal.
