American Airline pilots upset with management
MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, Fla. (WSVN) -- Several pilots for one of the nation's largest airlines protested in South Florida.
Hundreds of pilots for American Airlines marched through the terminals at Miami International Airport Monday.
The company is expected to ask a federal judge on Tuesday to throw out it's current labor deal and impose cuts and slash benefits as part of its restructuring plan. "American Airline has a decision to make," said Allied Pilots Association member, Howie Schack. "Do they want motivated pilots to come to work and fly 250,000 people around the country everyday? We've had enough of this management team. We'd like for them to reconsider their position. It's up to them to do the right thing for American Airlines' future."
In the midst of the labor dispute, American Airlines is currently in talks with U.S. Airways about a possible merger.
