I was reading the NTSB report about the AA 757 overrun at JAC on 12/29/2010 and got to wondering what ultimately happens to crewmembers involved in accidents where investigations show that the crew made errors but not anything bordering on "gross negligence". Is this pretty much circumstantial or do most of them get terminated (especially given the current pilot surplus?) Are there different philosophies on this at different carriers?
More specifically, does anyone know exactly what happened to these AA2253 crewmembers? I saw in the transcripts that after the plane stopped the pilot said "well, there goes our careers" and the pilot did seem to be pretty open and apologetic over the PA with the passengers. Would the pilots unions have stepped in, especially with a legacy carrier like AA, or do they not do that so much anymore? I did a quick search of news articles for their names but didn't find anything. How about HP 1248, which made a runway excursion landing at MDW on 12/8/2005? Any info on the careers of those pilots?
