Bankrupt American Airlines Fails to Completely Alienate Pilots

In a rare victory for common sense, a federal bankruptcy court has temporarily prevented American Airlines from ditching its contracts with its pilots’ union during its bankruptcy planning. (The flight attendants’ union is currently voting on its own latest offer.) American will now make a new offer and then also try again to cancel their agreement with the pilots’ union. It’s safe to describe American’s workers as “extremely pissed off” about this attempt to kick them to the curb. (Also? Kinda hard to turnaround an airline without, like, people to fly the planes.)
