That number includes all TWU represented employees in M&E. That includes stores personnel, aircraft cleaners(exterior), parts washers, and SRP's.

I wonder how a decision like this will affect the maintenance that is performed by AA Maintenance for other airlines like Allegiant.

it wont, i am sure AA earns a profit off G4.

What % is 1300. Of course getting rid of the oldcer M80s and A306s are probably the most MX intensive planes

The story numbers add up to 11800 mechanics so about 11% although if cleaners and others are in the group the number of actual mechanics to be cut will be smaller.

They are talking about offering a retirement package and Stand in Stead program. I do know from looking at the senority list that there are number of people who could retire tommorow if they wanted. Heck, some of them started working at AA before I was born.

Yes it could -- check out this video. At the end mentions that per AA representative the airline was reevaluating such 3rd part work.
