    Help--AA Employees - flight benefits question


    0 Not allowed! Not allowed!
    Hi -
    started last week at DFW, and was told that I'll be on a probationary period of 6 months before I can use my travel benefits. Pretty disappointed in that, as this privilege is one of the main reasons I started at AA.

    My question to other AA Employees out there -- is this probation period standard for all new AA employees, or is this specific only to certain workgroups? Also, is it possible that I might be able to get around it (ie - come off of probation earlier than 6 months? - does this ever happen!).

    Also, is there any possibility at all that this policy could have changed, and I'm being given wrong information? I actually found a version of the AA 'Trip Book' online, and it inferred that new employees were given flight benefits upon hire date (no mention of a probationary period).

    If there's anyone out there who can give me some clarification on this subject, I'd greatly appreciate it!! Thanks.

    Trip book is where you need to go, you're probably getting wrong information from coworkers or your stupidvisor.

    Devon287, exactly what is your position at AA?
    Are you a former eagle employee (pilot) who has flowed over to AA from AE?

    The problem Devon is that every part of AA may be a little different as far as benefits go. Go to jetnet and look at the benefits page and look for the employee handbook that should tell you. We are mostly American Eagle pilots and flight attendants.
