545 Flight Attendants, 250 Pilots To Be Recalled For Active
American Airlines announced Wednesday that it is sending recall
notices to 545 flight attendants and 250 pilots. Several factors
contributed to the company's ability to recall, primarily its
efforts to capitalize on new international flying and business
opportunities with British Airways and Iberia, continuing to
strengthen its cornerstone hubs, and preparing for it's pending
alliance with Japan Airlines.
Following Wednesday news conference in London announcing the
official beginning of American's alliance with British Airways and
Iberia, AMR Chairman and CEO Gerard Arpey said "The company is
pleased to be recalling approximately 800 total pilots and flight
attendants to help capitalize on our business goals as well as to
meet our staffing needs in the coming months. This is exactly the
kind of growth we're hoping to achieve with our network strategy,
and my hope is that trends like this will continue."
The first group of 25 pilots will be recalled in mid-November,
and the company will continue to recall at a rate of approximately
30 per month. For flight attendants, recall notices will be sent in
phases. The first notices will be issued to approximately 225
flight attendants this month; subsequent notifications will follow
later in the year.
"I am very pleased to welcome our furloughed flight attendants
back to service," said Denise Lynn, Vice President – Flight
Service. "Each day, our flight attendants play an integral role in
providing our customers with a welcoming and positive experience
onboard all our flights."
"We are happy to have these pilots back in our cockpits," said
Captain John Hale, Vice President Flight. "My hope is that the
enhancements we're making to our network will allow us to extend
the same offer to more of our furloughees."
