American Airlines: Restore AA Retiree Travel passes to original contract agreement
Restore AA Retiree Travel passes to original contract agreement when employees retired from AA as D2 Unlimited Travel & restore retiree Buddy Passes (D3 Travel) to 24 one ways.
Retirees D3 Travel members, do not get boarded unless there is a seat & their surcharges are appropriate for their standby travel which can be long hours waiting at an airport.
Retirees worked hard & long to build American Airlines and our retirement travel agreements are being slashed & downgraded.
Why is this important?
I worked 35 years at an Airport......working weekends, holidays, shift work through hot summers, cold & snowy winters.
Lifting heavy passenger bags when there was little automation, bag belts & other amenities that Airports have today.
Please understand that for US Air employees & new AA employees, you will all be retirees some day & I ask you all consider what lies ahead for your retirement when another carrier takes us over & restricts what you too have worked so hard for.
As we all get older we enjoy our travel passes & to be able to travel with family members & have family members visit in time of need, especially during illness.
I ask that all employees think ahead & not think for the short term.
That's what the Company banks on to destroy our loyalty to each other.
