Award fees, ticket-change fees and reinstatement fees are waived on award tickets claimed from a Retiree’s account.

Retirees are also provided a 20% discount (of miles claimed for award tickets). Confirm your reservations on AA.com website based on the AAdvantage Award class of service and date/day of travel. Then call We-Fly-AA at 1-888-933-5922, press option 4, then press option 1, and provide your AA Employee Number and your AAdvantage Account Number.

News From Your President


AA


EMPLOYEE TRAVEL DEPARTMENT

AMRRC has confirmed with AA that ALL non-revenue problems should be sent to the email address below so it can be determined what occurred and why it occurred.

Email: Employee.Travel@AA.com

  • AMRRC recommends that all employee and retirees save the email for the Employee Travel Department.
  • This department and it employees report directly to Cari Ulrich, Managing Director of Human Resources and they will investigate your non-rev travel concerns and issues, including why, NON-REVS ARE BEING LEFT BEHIND.
  • All non-revenue travel issues should (immediately) be sent to Employee Travel so it can be determined what happened to cause the issue.
  • All emails currently being sent to other executives or managers about non-rev travel issues are forwarded to this department to research and respond to the traveler. You should discontinue sending non-rev travel problems to others because they are forwarded to and researched by Employee Travel.
  • You MUST include your name and all of the flight information (flight, date, boarding city, connecting city and if possible a screen shot of the standby list especially if the issue involves boarding, or being left behind on a flight when there are empty seats. No research can be done without this information.
  • If you are being required to check your bags simply because you are a non-rev passenger; this information should also be sent because non-revs should not be targeted for checking bags at the gate. Checking bags is determined by boarding group, not being a non-rev traveler.
  • This process is not intended to identify and report personnel issues. This process is specifically intended to determine why a situation occurred which caused an issue so it can be addressed and fixed.
  • Please include AMRRC in your email to AA so we are also informed of non-rev travel issues for future discussions in our meetings with AA.
  • Please save this email address for Travel Problems to AMRRC.

American Airlines' 3rd Q Performance

  • American Airlines posted third-quarter earnings that beat Street estimates.
  • Hurricanes forced the airline to cancel some about 8,000 flights.
  • Profits narrowly top expectations after storms
  • Fuel and other costs rose in the 3rd quarter.
  • American Airlines, the largest U.S. airline, weathered three major hurricanes in the third quarter to post profits that narrowly beat analysts' expectations.

Expectations vs. Results

  • Adjusted EPS: $1.42 vs. $1.40 expected in a Thomson Reuters survey of analysts.
  • Revenue: $10.88 billion, in line with estimates.

The airline, like its competitors, faced climbing fuel costs and an onslaught of powerful storms that hit some of its key airports, including its Miami hub.

The airline said it canceled some 8,000 flights due to the storms and estimates that storm-related costs will run about $75 million in pretax earnings.

American said its revenue per each seat it flies one mile, a key industry metric, grew 1.1 percent in the three months ended in Sept. 30.

American said that metric should improve further in the fourth quarter from the same period a year ago, growing 2.5% to 4.5% on an increase in leisure and business travel demand.

American's shares were down 1% in morning trade Thursday.

The airline said net income of $624 million was down more than 15% from the third quarter of 2016, as costs rose, while its reported revenue of nearly $10.9 billion was in line with estimates. On an adjusted basis, its American posted per share earnings of $1.42, just above the $1.40 Wall Street forecast.

During an earnings call later Thursday, executives will likely address the rollout of the airline's no-frills basic economy product, which in exchange for giving up certain perks like seat selection gives passengers a lower fare. Analysts may also ask how stricter U.S. security measures on U.S.-bound flights that went into effect Thursday will affect its passengers as well as those on its many international partner airlines.

2017 stockholders

June 14, 2017 - AA 4th Quarter Shareholders' Meeting, New York City. Retirees and AMRRC Shareholders were in attendance of meeting.

This year it was great that a large number of people from other AA organizations joined us at the pre‑meeting Rally at 8:00 am, and also voiced their concerns at the meeting at 9:00 am.

Thank you again to Mary McKenna for her great work in organizing the rally.

The AMRRC packet of information to the Board of Directors began with a message from Roy King, Retiree, 50.6 years with AA, Seniority 06/28/1962

Roy’s words represent us all:

“Does anyone have the common decency to honor precious commitments to AA employees? Is there no shame in deceiving those retirees who believed in their future flying benefits that would be there at the end retirement? How can one person destroy the trust of so many employees that have given the better of their career to be thrown under the bus? Please reinstate the original retiree travel benefits back to its original position with honor, proud and integrity. AA should take the high ground.”

Retirees travel to the AA Shareholder meeting at their own expense, and we will continue to be a voice for Retirees to reinstate our earned pass benefits.

Donations to AMRRC help us cover communication and printing expenses for our not-for-profit organization. Donations are never used for travel expenses. Those expenses are borne by the retirees.

Join us next year June 2018! This is a terrific opportunity to talk directly with AA Board of Directors, Doug Parker and AA management!
