One down, two to go.

AA and the TWU, which represents AA's mechanics, rampers, fleet service clerks, etc., have reportedly reached a tentative agreement, according to the Dallas Morning News.

From the article, some of the provisions:

- Lump sum signing bonus on signing
- Structural increases at future milestones
- 15% of all post-tax profits, eliminating the current $500M threshold for sharing to kick-in

Now it has to go to members for ratification. The question is how it will play in Tulsa, since, as AA TWUers know, how goes Tulsa, so often goes the whole union. Tulsa has so many TWU-represented employees that a solid block voting together there can pretty much tip the scales for or against any system-wide vote.

And, of course, needless to say, this was always going to be the easiest of the three contracts to get a deal for. The TWU has historically been the least militant and adversarial of the three big unions.

So we'll see...

Good news, hopefully AA will get its house in order soon.

Link now has that information removed. No way AA is paying 15% of post-tax profits to one labor group.

But good for them on reaching agreement with one of their labor groups. Pilots and FAs will be difficult.

If this report is accurate, this is a tremendous leap in the right direction for AA management and labor parties.

Seemed realistic. I suspect they will remove the $500M kick-in threshold, but true, it's unlikely TWU alone will get 15%.

The TWU were always going to be the easiest - though, important to remember: this is still only tentative, and could still be rejected.

But the pilots are going to be much harder, and the FAs will be hardest of all.

The latest copy of Flightline is full of articles about the pilot labor group and relations to other companies and work groups.

This agreement only covers the mechanics and related. Ramp/Fuelers/Cleaners,etc...have not reached an agreement as of yet.

Now if AA can get the other two groups "on board" (figuratively speaking), it will solve a lot of problems. I expect AA to finalise the B787 order as well as start a number of routes.

ORD-HKG...Sign me up(though I would have to "back-track a bit from SJC-ah what the 'eck, I'll come to ORD as I live in Chicago 2-3 months of the year anyway).
DFW-ICN...doesn't affect too much.
SJC-NRT      .
ORD-DXB-bit skeptical on that with AA's ORD-AUH codeshare with EY, but if they do, I"ll definitely be purchasing tickets for that route a few times/year...  ...actually SJC-ORD-DXB....
