Secret, and meaningless..The company and union are still under federal mediation. Yes the judge imposed the companies "ask"in BK. That is a seperate issue to help the BK company emerge. They are still required to come up with an agreement. The pilots safety program may speed the company to the table. AA's costs in the pilot sector can only rise from here, ergo there is no need to hurry without outside influence. That said, until the federal mediator declares an impasse and the Railway Labor Act conditions are met i.e. a 30 day coolng off period there can be no strike.

You are still moving faster than United during the three years from HELL. It sucks no matter how you cut it. I worked my A$$ off did my job when others did the bare min. I showed up and was happy to have a job...those slugs would sit and watch me work....then ask why I was in such a foul mood later...I cut the fat until even Glenn Beck an Rush would say "WTF?!?!??" as fat a$$ Repugnicans.
