Last year, AA announced that ‘fees’ associated to AAdvantage Award tickets will be waived for Retirees if the AAdvantage miles were used from a Retiree’s AAdvantage Account.
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, to speak with a Representative.
The 20% discount must be applied at time of ticketing; not after the ticket has been purchased. The credit card used must be in the name of the AAdvantage member unless the member is the customer.
Join us in our efforts to restore our pass policy, for equal rights for ALL Retirees, without discrimination to specific work groups, including TWA, USAir, Sabre and other Retirees from AMR. Thank you.

American Airlines Group Inc. today reported its first-quarter results, including these highlights:
“American’s team members continue to deliver solid results, including record first quarter revenue performance. Higher fuel prices led to a decline in year-over-year earnings, but we are excited about the future,” said Chairman and CEO Doug Parker. “With the youngest fleet in the industry among our large network peer competitors, a significantly improved product, and a team of 130,000 who demonstrate extraordinary care for our customers, we are well positioned for long-term success.”
The Passport Services department at the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs continues to receive reports of U.S. citizen travelers unable to board international flights because their passports do not have the required passport validity.
Passports should be valid through the dates of your trip, but most countries in the European Union require passports be valid for at least three months from planned date of departure and some countries even require passports be valid for at least six months from date of departure.

American Airlines Group Inc., Fort Worth, Texas, expects to contribute $467 million to its pension plans in 2018, the company announced in its 10-K filed Wednesday.
Of the $467 million, $425 million is a discretionary contribution and $42 million is required. The company contributed $286 million to its pension plans in 2017.
As of Dec. 31, American Airlines had $11.4 billion in total defined benefit assets and $18.28 billion in benefit obligations for a funded status of 62.4%, up from 58.1% at the end of 2016. The 10-K did not provide a breakout of U.S. vs. international pension plans, but U.S. plan assets totaled $11.13 billion as of Sept. 30, according to Pensions & Investments data.
The discount rate used to calculate benefit obligations was 3.8% as of Dec. 31, down from 4.3% as of Dec. 31, 2016.
Also as of Dec. 31, the pension plans had an asset allocation of 63.3% equities, 23% fixed income, 13.1% alternatives, 0.4% dividend and interest receivable, and the remainder in cash and the net amount due to/from brokers for the sale of securities.
American Airlines indicated in the 10-K that temporary favorable funding rules expired at the end of 2017, and pension contributions are expected to "increase materially" starting in 2019 when fiscal year 2018 contributions are due.

Are these the best and worst airlines in the United States?
A honest and true look at airline performance can only come from analyzing objective data, and that’s why The Points Guy has undertaken the second-annual comprehensive study of the largest airlines in the United States. From prices to cabin comfort to frequent flyer programs, we’ve dug through the numbers across 10 criteria covering every aspect of each airline’s operations, and ranked the best, the worst and everyone in between.
For the second year in a row, Alaska Airlines sits at the top of The Points Guy’s ranking of airlines in the United States. The travel-focused site gave Alaska points for its airfare, timeliness, baggage handling, and customer service, as well as its frequent-flyer program, which it considers the best in the industry. Other airlines that ranked high on TPG’s list were Southwest at number two and Delta at number three.
Perhaps the biggest surprise on the list is that, thanks to innovations in minimizing lost bags, flying bus Spirit Airlines is now ranked above JetBlue, which dropped from fourth to eighth place in the ranking. The Points Guy blamed this on the fact that JetBlue was “ranked dead last” for on-time arrivals and speculated that passengers were frustrated because JetBlue was acting like a low-cost airline without actually having low-cost airfare.

Only Shareholders or appropriately designated Proxy Holders will be permitted to attend the Meeting. If you are a shareholder (only 1 share of stock – makes you a shareholder); we encourage you to attend.
In 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 retirees and AMRRC shareholders who attended the annual meeting represented the concerns about retiree benefits and pensions of all AA retirees. If the retiree shareholders had not attended these meetings to present the views of retirees, the BODs would not be aware of them.
The shareholder retirees will continue to voice their concerns each and every year to the American Airlines’ Board of Directors and must continue to ask questions about the issues impacting American Airlines.
