American Airlines Hit by Labor Strife, Maintenance Issues

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

American Airlines, the bankrupt airline that is attempting to cut labor costs, faced sharp questioning from a federal appeals court over its effort to block an employee group’s union vote, Bloomberg News reports. The Dallas Morning News looks at the union tension apparently behind an increased numbers of sick days and maintenance reports. In addition, the Associated Press reports that federal inspectors are examining two incidents in which passenger seats came loose midflight on American planes in the last three days.
