With 2000+ pilots on furlough, does American have any idea when they will begin recalling them?

Also anyone have an idea when the Legacys will announce their Q2 results. I'm kinda anxious to see how they did.

When they need more pilots. AA still has pilots on furlough because AA continues to park airplanes. 27 more MD80s were parked this year so far, for example.

The plan is to park an additional 15 or so TWA 757's next year.

They have no plans for expansion that are public knowledge.

Don't look for any recalls anytime soon.



Tired of airline bankruptcies....EA/PA/TW and finally DL.

How many pilots have retired this year? More than a few dozen could make for a need for more pilots, right?

I don't know specifics, but my uncle is doing an unusal amount of check flights. AA got rid of all but 26 total Check Airman. He's usually flying out of ORD to Hawaii or Europe, but has been doing alot of domestic hauls giving check rides for promotions to captain and other a/c.

His overall senority went from #387 to #290 out of 9,000+ active pilots over the past 9 months.

If Congress, likely to, is gonna pass the legislation to extend mandatory retirement to 65, look for pilots to stick around a few years longer.

Hope this helps.

FYI. There are still a few TW guys trolling the friendly skies for AA. Avg. age for them is 58.9 though.

Not going to happen.

As for AA and the recalls. They are very short-staffed. But to avoid calling back guys, they continue to park airplanes. What does it tell you if 20+MD80s were parked, and 15+ 757s are going to be parked . . . AND NOT ONE PERSON WAS FURLOUGHED!

At an average of 8 guys per seat, per airplane (a fair estimate), you could see that they could get rid of quite a few guys by grounding over 30 aircraft. But they are just keeping pace with retirements.

AA is also hesitant to expand because of TWA Flight Attendants. After 2008, they lose recall rights to AA. As most are senior (and expensive), AA is trying to avoid recalling TWA FAs at all costs.
