AA and pilots talks stall

Negotiations between American Airlines and its pilots union, the Allied Pilots Association, are reported to have stalled over issues of pay and work rules.
APA President Keith Wilson said an agreement has been reached on language for most of a new contract but the main obstacle was “scope — specifically as it pertains to the size and seat capacity of the larger regional jet” he said.
Wilson said the union does not agree with management’s proposals on the use of 79-seat regional jets, furlough protections and a potential cap on wide-body-aircraft pay increases in the middle of the contract. American is seeking to expand the use of third-party companies to fly regional jets while the union wants to limit their use.
