The CWA/IBT Association and the Company have extended the trial mando agreement for another three week period, which will run from July 26 through August 15.

We are pleased to announce that a settlement has been reached between the CWA/IBT Association and American Airlines regarding the 55/5 Plan for passenger service employees.
