Shareholder members of the Board of Directors for AMRRC will be attending the American Airlines Shareholders Meeting and we want to be your Voice.

Your emails can be sent to: CORRESPONDENCE@AMRRC.NET Rich Collins, who many of you know, will be receiving your emails at AMRRC.

Item #1
As a Retiree, what change has impacted you and your family the most since the merger?

Item #2
As a Retiree, if you could personally talk to a member of the AA Board of Directors, what would you congratulate them for about the merger, other than, for the good performance of AA stock?

Item #3
As a Retiree, how much have you spent $$$ on purchasing tickets on other airlines for you and your family since the downgrading of Retiree Travel Benefits, and on what other airlines have you purchased tickets on?

We will be also be presenting our Petition to the AA Board of Directors. The Petition was created by Rich Collins and has 10,459 signatures asking AA to reinstate D2 travel for all retirees. If you have not previously signed our Petition, Please SIGN THE PETITION NOW!

survey

APRIL 28, 2015

I wanted to let you all know that AMRRC is not involved in the "third-party monkey survey" posted on various retiree Facebook pages by Jackie Phillips. Although, I have worked with Charles Ashcraft and Jackie Phillips as a member of another retiree group, AMRRC was not asked to provide any input for the survey. Comments and questions have been sent to me personally recommending some other questions which retirees feel should have been included and that it is not clear as to the purpose or focus of the survey. Our list of members and their personal information is confidential and is not ever shared with a third party.

arrpwD1-Passes
A photo of Doug Parker and Lori Strohm is posted at left. Lori Strohm had a personal conversation with Doug Parker. She asked him if he would consider providing retirees with additional D1 passes since we were only provided with 4 one-ways. Mr. Parker said he was not aware that retirees were only provided four D1s. He advised Lori that he would see what he could do. Since Mr. Parker is the top decision-maker; within 6-weeks of this conversation, the D1s for retirees were increased from 4 one-ways to 6 one-ways for each eligible traveler. We are ever so grateful to have the additional D1 passes and we thank Lori Strohm for her perseverance.

See you all there!
Kathy Johnson, President – AMRRC

American Airlines State of the Airline Meeting – April 24, 2015

parkerOn Friday April 24th, Rich Slivocka, AMRRC Board Member, attended the American Airlines State of the Airline Meeting at HDQ announcing its 1st Quarter Profit of $1.2 Billion.

Rich asked Mr. Parker two questions: (1) Was it his decision to not allow active employees to participate in “profit sharing”; (2) Was it his decision to implement the “D2R Policy”, or was this a decision made by a group or how was this done?
