American Airlines pilots to vote on possible strike

Pilots for American Airlines may go on strike if the Fort Worth-based airline does not meet their demands.

Leaders with the Allied Pilots Association okayed a plan for members to vote on a strike in early April.

The APA says the vote will conclude by the end of April.


American Airline's first female pilot says she was rejected by every other carrier

Bonnie Tiburzi began working for the Fort Worth-based carrier in 1973. She said few companies wanted to hire women back then.

The union and American Airlines have been in negotiations for a new labor deal for 3 years.

Earlier this week, American's CEO Robert Isom promised 40% raises for pilots.

The APA said it was ‘cautiously optimistic’ about the commitments promised by American.
