AMERICAN AIRLINES is still around as ABTN went to press over the Easter weekend. Currently the world”s largest airline, the Dallas-Fort Worth based carrier has been tottering on the brink of Chapter 11 bankruptcy for weeks, the latest episode being the rejection of new working conditions by the cabin staff union, and a back down by management over executive bonus”s. However a recount/rethink staved off the Court running the airline, at least for the time being. The two other major unions involved, pilots and engineers, had voted in favour, the flight deck personnel agreeing to a 23% pay cut from low-cost operators.
