Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and wanted to get your opinion on this. If US does merge with AA, what do you think will happen with the nonrev situation? Do you think that the new company would retain US' non rev policies?

Also, what do you think of AA's policies right now? Would it be THAT bad if US adopted AA's? Finally, what do you think would happen to load factors for the new company? Would it be impossible to get anywhere due to American's employees' seniority?

I'm interested to hear your thoughts.

Who knows, its a bit premature to even guess. I don't even have a clue what AA's policy is.

Honestly I don't think it will matter. As a West employee, what I saw was that our benefits didn't necessarily shift one way or another, but more towards whatever the company felt was reasonable. I seem to recall when the combined policy came out there was this big comparison to other carriers and what we were going to get. The only exception to this might be contractual, I THINK the West FAs have their benefits in their CBA.

AA boarding priority


You will be assigned boarding priority within your travel classification based on the check-in time entered in SABRE. Preference for class of service will be offered in order of boarding priority when possible. Note: The revenue customers and higher priority non-rev travelers will be accommodated before you. Through passengers are boarded before all local passengers with the same boarding priority, regardless of check-in time.

Whichever policy will generate more revenue is the one they will use.

I believe their policy is first come-first served.

It's hard to say how non-reving will work out. US has some pretty senior folks too.

I "think" AA employees pay by flight segments. Years ago If found an AA pay stub on the floor. I recall seeing payroll deductions for flight segments. Hopefully an AA employee can give us the low down.

AA
No buddy passes until after two (2) years of service.
Can fly for free in first (I'll check that) after 10 years of service.

That was how AA handled charging for buddy passes - payroll deduction of the appropriate fee from the employee supplying the buddy passes. It was then up to the employee to get reimbursed by those using the buddy passes or give them away.
