    DOT also advised any member of a flight crew who develops a cough, fever or has difficulty breathing to immediately self-isolate and exclude themselves from working a flight until he or she is cleared by public health authorities.

    AA Pay Protection
    American Airlines employees are being impacted directly by COVID-19. The Company will provide support to pilots who are diagnosed with COVID-19 in the following ways: any pilot who is non-symptomatic, but who is directed or advised by a medical professional, public health authority, other government official, or governmental or legal order, to quarantine or self- monitor based on concerns, conditions or events related to COVID-19, or who self-quarantines due to the pilot’s family member being diagnosed with COVID-19, will be withheld from service with pay (“PW”) (i.e., lineholders will have their trips dropped and pay-protected and reserves will have reserve available days removed with no impact to reserve guarantee) for the duration of the evaluation, treatment, and/or quarantine. Per diem and expenses away from base shall continue on a day-to-day basis for any period of evaluation, treatment, isolation, or quarantine if the pilot is away from base for Company-related reasons at the time of quarantine.
    Any pilot who displays symptoms of COVID-19 shall call in sick. If the pilot is diagnosed with COVID-19, the pilot shall be pay protected as described above and shall have any sick which was deducted from the pilot’s sick bank restored to the pilot’s sick bank.

    Will active AA Pilots be Pay Protected per the JCBA? The LOA agreement is a positive move. I'm not confident as conditions worsen and lack of a government bailout/loan.

    My bet says Parker takes free money. He knows without it, he loses control very fast and he doesn't want to lose control under these circumstances. But, that being said, AA is in a real pickle considering overall debt and adding more debt will only make things worse in the long run. A government bailout will only give AA more time to kick the can, it will not solve its underlying problems that existed prior to Covid. It has a MOUNTAIN of debt about to get considerably larger, a poor product, a marginal reputation and a completely alienated front-line employee base. None of these components are part of any success story and combined are hopelessly toxic. The AA environment can only get worse from here.

    Regardless of what occurs in the short-term, AA is in real trouble and IMO, there odds of eventual BK have substantially increased. Again, that will be disastrous for those junior at AA as scope changes that would almost certainly occur would change their lives the most. I think AA is at the top of the eventual bankruptcy list for major carriers and almost a certainty. Parker's legacy will be that of someone who was given the key to the city and blew it. In a more traditional airline environment, it will take AA decades to pay off that debt and there's just too much time and risk now to run faster than the karma Parker has built up. The LOA and likely bailouts are just temporary measures and both can become moot VERY quickly. Just my opinion though, so take it or leave it.

    Hubris: 10.8 Billion in AAL stock buyback. Heads should roll, starting at the top. Accountability and responsibility, two words long ago that don't apply to the top of the food chain.
