Last week American’s CEO Tom Horton met with the officers and the board of the Allied Pilots Association to outline the progress and improvements that have been achieved during restructuring process, and to describe how AA will grow in the future.
After the meeting, American’s vice president of flight, John Hale, sent out an email to AA pilots along with a copy of the presentation
Tom outlined the strong progress and improved performance we have achieved in restructuring and outlined all of the reasons — from network and partners to fleet and products and services — American is poised to be a successful, profitable and growing company that provides more opportunity for its people. For pilots, this is growth and opportunity unseen for more than a decade.
Much of the presentation is highly confidential, but it’s important for you to have an unfiltered look at the information, so we have posted to AAPilots a version that removes only the most competitive details.
Terry Maxon, of the Dallas Morning News, posted a copy of the entire presentation on the paper’s Airline Biz Blog, and afterwards copies of the presentation started showing up in the forums and on Facebook.
It’s 45 pages and some of it is probably of more interest to pilots or investors, but there are several slides that caught my attention.
Improved revenue and financials (a good sign)
Modernizing the brand and the fleet
Expanding the network
I’d love to see uncensored versions of these next two route maps!
