The American Airlines Retirees Committee goal is to Preserve Retiree Benefits through Communications and Determination!
AMRRC, Inc. was incorporated as a 501(c4) tax exempt, nonprofit corporation, dedicated to represent all Retirees from American Airlines, from past mergers and to protect Retiree benefits for future Retirees.
AMRRC, Inc. will work to restore Retiree Earned Benefits and to meet the short term and long term challenges that are ahead. Retirees are proud of our decades of hard work that made American Airlines great. Retirees deserve Respect and the Earned Benefits, including travel pass benefits that were promised for our years of service as a part of our Retirement programs.
We look forward to working with old and new members for the long term.

During the latest January – June period, there were 9,542 consumer complaints, compared with 7,935 in the first 6 months of 2014. In June alone, DOT received 2,052 complaints about airline service, up 47.3% from the total of 1,393 filed in June 2014 and up 37.5% from the 1,492 received a month earlier.
Other Areas Covered
The consumer report also includes data on on-time performance, cancellations, chronically delayed flights, and the causes of flight delays. In addition, there are statistics on mishandled baggage reports, passengers denied confirmed space (oversales) and aviation service complaints filed with DOT’s Aviation Consumer Protection Division by consumers regarding a range of issues such as flight problems, baggage, reservation and ticketing, refunds, consumer service, disability, and discrimination.
The consumer report also includes reports of incidents involving the loss, death, or injury of animals traveling by air.
American's CEO, Doug Parker, tells employees they need not to be bothered by the DOJ's investigation regarding collusion and price-fixing and that they can best serve the airline by focusing on their respective jobs.
"While this is an unfortunate situation, our request to all of you is to please ignore it. Go out and do the great job you do every day in the safe, professional and customer-friendly manner you always do. Working for a commercial airline is a noble profession – airline employees bring people together, allow businesses to run, reunite families and friends, and allow people to see the world. No one does it better than the people of American Airlines and I am extremely proud to be on your team.
My responsibilities include ensuring your airline behaves in a way that will always make you proud, and you can rest assured that is the case here."
Parker: ‘There has been no illegal behavior on the part of American Airlines’ by Dallas Morning News – Terry Maxon -July 6, 2015
If you or a family member was left behind and the flight left with open seats, please let AMRRC know. We are collecting this data because AA management is not aware that this is occurring and we want to provide them with this information.
It is not the Agent’s fault when this occurs, but rather, because of the very strict D (minus) 10 minute boarding rule directive issued by the Company. The agent MUST close the Terminal Door to the Jet-bridge 10 minutes prior to the departure time of the flight.
AMRRC has established a new EMAIL Address exclusively for you to send us the flight information when this occurs.
Please include a copy of the list, OR provide the (1) Flight Number, (2) Date, (3) From/To, (4) Departure Time , (5) how many seats were open. You can obtain this information at: Mobi.aa.com. Please also include your name, as sometimes the sender’s email address is not reflective of your name.
At the July 14th meeting Doug Parker was asked to grandfather in D2 Retirees, just as he grandfathered in retiree positive space employees. There seems to be a lot of “Level 8” retirees.
Parker replied; “If they have something that came way before us, had some kind of agreement with the company……”
Elise Eberwein then replied; “I don’t know how many 8’s are still out there but my view on this is that those employees worked for this company and its part of their compensation, and their agreement and they retired with that benefit so they’re going to keep it.”
These statements are significant because all retirees should be grand-fathered under this criterion!
Of the many retiree comments one said, “…they could care less about the regular worker bees that helped to build this company… so “they” are going to keep them….”
Another retiree comment, “We have contracts that state D2 and those should be honored too, and D2 was part of our retirement too.”
On Saturday, July 18th this video was posted on Facebook, however, late Saturday night, retirees were surprised when the video had been removed.

SABRE/AA Retiree Access to NRTP. Although an Agreement exists to provide the NRTP (Non-Revenue Travel Planner) option of Jetnet to approximately 500 Sabre Retirees with AA Travel Benefits, Sabre and American Airlines have not yet done so. AA has communicated that it does not yet have a definite date of when this option will be provided Sabre Retirees.
The next (3rd) Quarterly Earnings Meeting will be October, 2015. AMRRC will post the date and time, as soon as, the meeting is scheduled. Earnings are generally released early in the morning, and the “State of the Airline” is scheduled the same day. We appreciate the letter we have from AA that “retirees are always welcome,” and encourage retirees to use the opportunity to attend a SOTA meeting.
