A cool $1.8 million to say goodbye: AA pilots

Buried in the AMR Corp latest annual financial report, and unearthed by Dallas Morning News “Airline Biz” blogger Terry Maxon, is the fact that:

* Early retirements by 517 pilots brought them an average lump sum of $1.8 million each from the airline’s A Plan and B Plan.

Sounds like a good deal to me. Read what others felt in Terry’s blog comments.

    Wow! Talk about a nice retirement! Aren’t these the same pilots crying about getting a raise right now?!

    Could be Travelingsalesman – but it is hardly the time for labour to be pleading for more is it? Let’s face it how much leverage have any of us got in this economic situation to ask for a hefty raise – exactly NONE!
