American Threatens Legal Action Against Pilots

In a letter sent Tuesday to national officers and board members of the Allied Pilots Association, the union representing American Airlines pilots, American Airlines said it would seek an injunction if pilots continue to engage in "unlawful conduct" allegedly affecting the airline's operations.

plotsThe letter, sent by AA human resources executive Denise Lynn, said, "This unlawful conduct is taking the form of discretionary pilot actions including such things as delaying departures for unnecessary checks, increased and late-filed maintenance write-ups, increased block times due to slow taxiing and circuitous routings."

With flight delays plaguing the airline for more than a week, "we must take appropriate steps to protect the company and the many constituents who depend upon it," Lynn wrote.
