AA is way ahead? They have been negotiating for four or five years with no progress. They DID keep their great pension on the concessionary contract though.

Jeff Smisek (the current CEO) and Glenn Tilton (the outgoing CEO) will also be "upgrading" their respective lifestyles with the million$ they'll be getting.
