Does thia vote men 80% of the combined AA/US/HP flights voted? I would guess not!

I believe the pilots are the only ones in a split union.

Co-pairing at US means, same crew in the front and in the back from the beginning all through your trip. PHX base does not have co-pairing. AA does not have this either except on some international long hauls.
|Quoting chepos (Reply 14):|
Not yet, an "east" F/A can transfer to PHX, however, he/she will become part of the PHX base. However, for the time being you will not see PHX based and CLT based f/a's working the same flight. If you transfer to PHX you will become PHX based and can only fly west metal, the same goes for a west person who chooses to transfer to an east base. If today you are PHX based and choose to transfer to CLT you will become part of the CLT base and will only fly east metal operated flights. A tad bit confusing to explain. Co-pairing btw flight deck and cabin crew is expected to end in October, I believe. As mentioned above base transfers will start taking place in May.

AA's South American based FA's don't ever fly with the USA based ones and they can only operate flights into and out of MIA.
|Quoting YYZbound (Reply 20):|
chepos, are there a lot of US west f/a's that want to transfer to the east bases?
|Quoting chepos (Reply 21):|
Some do, the ones who commute from the east to the west or want to fly TATL, however, many in this base live here so I do not expect many PHX based to transfer to CLT/DCA/PHL. That being said, we have many ex-PSA "current east" who either live here or commute from California to the east coast, you will see some of them transfer to PHX. Some ex-Psa are very senior and hold TLV/FRA/FCO and other desirable trips out of PHL, those will stay put in PHL. But many/most from the PHX base will stay put.

And though the McCaskill-Bond law - which came out of the American-TWA fiasco - guarantees that seniority integrations must be "fair and equitable" (citing the old language from the Allegheny-Mohawk LPPs), there can still be extremely arduous wrangling amid defining "fair and equitable" -

Was a "buy out or paid separation" offered? If so, are there quite a few who would want to take it?
