Right! Eagle F/A's will be lucky to get a THX 4 ap

AMR to AMR yes they keep all their seniority - NOT

External hiring in bankruptcy makes no sense

Same O L D AMR different day

I think it is time to call out AMR Execs on this!

Since AMR is getting rid of and downsizing American Eagle Airlines (MQ), why does AMR not just have a flow through agreement to hire Eagle flight attendants some of whom have served with loyalty to AMR for 5 - 10 plus years with Eagle.

It seems it would provide significant cost savings advantage at AMR if they could get almost every Eagle flight attendant they could land their hands upon as Eagle F/A's are already trained "theoretically" in the "seamless service concept" and AMR policies, and corporate culture from major mainline to regional already.

For a company in bankruptcy as AMR is..... it sure seems S T U P I D and uneconomic to hire unknown caliber individuals off the street rather than hire flow through candidates of known caliber individuals from an extant AMR company.

AM I the only ECONOMIST seeing this?

Cost savings are still obviously not being realized by AMR Execs even during chapter 11.

Eagle to AA keeps seniority and pay for non union positions only. Pretty much only agents and staff. Enjoy paying your union dues.
