There is a secretarial error had incorrectly labeled flights during the critical holiday time period lower-priority, which allowed pilots to choose family over flying and drop those flights. Those flights are typically un-droppable.

 

 

In a press statement by American Airlines and the Allied Pilots Association, they have been in an agreement which they believe that they will ensure that their customer’s holiday travel plans are not disrupted while also recognizing their pilots’ extra effort to help resolve this challenge.

 

 

The terms of the agreement stated that the pilots, who were offered “premium pay” of 150% of their rates, will now be paid 200% for flights in the critical holiday period.

 

 

 

To make more pilots entitled for the rate hike, all regular pilots’ hours will be considered at a level high enough to qualify them for double pay. The pay increases are expected to be enough to convince pilots to take the flights.

 

 

 

There was confusion among the travellers, who wondered whether they were going to be able to fly during the holidays.

 

 

The airline said the flights had pilots, leaving the pilots confused as they looked into the scheduling system and saw a mass of unmanned flights planned.

 

 

 

The officials of American Airlines has also clarified that it had meant reserve pilots, a move that would have stretched American Airlines’ reserve system, which is typically meant for sick pilots or inclement weather emergencies.
