American Airlines pilots’ union says that company managers should be replaced as a result of the hundreds of flight disruptions that have affected tens of thousands of customers this year.
The board of directors of the Allied Pilots Association this week approved a resolution that calls on the company to replace the managers responsible for the airline’s operations, saying that staff failed to provide a reliable service and damaged the carrier’s brand.
The board of directors “believes it is in the best interest of the American Airlines shareholders, employees, the communities it serves, and the traveling public for the management team members who control the American Airlines operation be replaced,” said the resolution.
It added that 60,000 customers were affected by cancellations over Father’s Day weekend in June.
The demands do not include demands for top management to be replaced.
