So, at least according to public reporting, United and AA plan to have their respective FA work groups integrated onto single crew bidding systems ... at the same time. United's merger closed over three years before AA's. Pretty amazing.

Incredible. It's like neither side saw integration coming and they're now just starting to work on it. Eight years after the merger. Wow

AA FA group have not integrated onto a single crew bidding system. The AA system for them will not be ready until next year at the soonest never mind putting the two groups into one system. Three years from now? Management doesn't want to speculate on how long right now for what its worth.

I don't believe it took Delta eight years to fold in the NWA bidding system, either.

What are all of UA's FA bases?

Why does this process take so long?

It took about 4 years for Delta & Northwest Flight Attendants to fly together. The first day was May 1, 2012.
