Monday Midday Must-Reads

You take one day off and all sorts of news happens, so this edition of Monday Midday Must-Reads is a catch-up of everything going on at American Airlines, it's regional carrier Envoy Air and Thanksgiving travel at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.

-American and its pilots union, the Allied Pilots Association will keep negotiating towards a new joint contract through mid-December instead of moving into the arbitration process, according to the Wall Street Journal.

-American also announced on Friday it was moving 50 regional jets from Envoy Air to three other carriers because of the lack of pilots at Envoy, the Associated Press reported. "Senior vice president Kenji Hashimoto said in a memo to employees that without "a cost-effective pilot agreement," Envoy won't get new planes and will find it hard to recruit new pilots. It is losing about 20 pilots a month to American," the article says.

-My colleague Gordon Dickson also covered DFW Airport's holiday campaign presser for me. Here's a look at the giant snow globe passengers will get to stand in for a holiday photo op at the airport.
