American Eagle to shrink after pilots reject labor pact

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 03/29/2014 - 00:38
(Reuters) - American Eagle Airlines will shrink its fleet and will lose the opportunity to fly larger regional jets that its parent American Airlines Group has ordered after its pilots rejected a concessionary labor contract, the subsidiary said on Friday.

"Despite threats from AAG management that they would seek other express carriers to conduct our flying, today's vote demonstrates that the demands for contract concessions were not acceptable," Capt. Bill Sprague, chairman of ALPA Master Executive Council at American Eagle, said in a statement.
