Allied Pilots Association President John Darrah met this week with American Airlines chief Don Carty to ask for a role in the planning process as the nation's largest airline looks at cost-cutting. Through a union statement, Darrah said, the pilots were "prepared to explore a range of compensation options ..." Darrah added that American Airlines pilots work at rates well below that of their peers at Northwest, Delta and even United, but that the pilots were looking forward to continued dialogue with management in the hopes of achieving a speedy financial recovery for the airline.
