In order for us to get back the $20,000 that we are giving up annually,American would have to have an annual profit of $27 Billion. In other words more than they have made in all the years of their entire existance-COMBINED!!!!
If we ratify our agreement and one of the other groups fails to or if any of the other terms are not met will we still be stuck with the six years of concessions? Is this "IRON CLAD"? I know its such a great deal being given the opportunity to pay $20,000 for the right to have options that we cant afford to exercise that expire in a short period of time and the possibility of getting $750 of profit sharing but what assurances are we given? If AA goes BK, after all the contracts are ratified what then? The contract is still valid and binding for six years but what about the options? What will they be worth?
