A change in a contract clause, proposed by American, would allow the carrier to count pilot time on a different clock than it currently uses, enabling more flexibility and therefore more flying on the 787 and other long-haul aircraft.
"If American wants to fly those Dreamliners from (Los Angeles International Airport, or LAX) to Asia and Oceania, this contract may help facilitate that flying for American pilots," said a pilot who asked not to be named.
American Airlines' President, Scott Kirby, said that American plans more trans-Pacific from LAX, but he declined to say what routes the 787 will fly.
I do sure hope AA is smart in terms of using their 787s correctly. Hopefully the 787 will give them the AAdvantage. See what I did there?
Anyone have a prediction on where the AA 787 will fly to/from?
