Definition of Commuter Air Carrier changed to aircraft (jet or turboprop) with a max of 79 seats (as operated for AA) and including aircraft such as the CRJ900, E170/175, MRJ70-90, or comparable aircraft. Eliminate owned/non-owned commuter carrier distinction – all commuter aircraft will now operate as owned.
The total number of regional small jets with greater than 30 seats can be up to 75% of the mainline narrowbody fleet count outlined as follows:
• The max number of regional small jets with greater than 30 seats, up to and including 65 seats cannot exceed 35% of the total mainline narrowbody fleet count. (See note below.)
• The max number of regional small jets with greater than 65 seats, up to and including 79 seats cannot exceed the following percentages of the total mainline narrowbody fleet count in the years indicated:
o 2012-2014: 25%
o 2015: 30%
o 2016 and beyond: 40%
• Note: The number of regional small jets with 31-65 seats may exceed 35% of the mainline narrowbody fleet count, provided the total number of regional jets does not exceed 75% of the mainline narrowbody fleet count.
Turboprops with less than 50 seats will not count toward the limits listed above. However, turboprops with less than 50 seats operated on behalf of American Airlines cannot exceed 10% of the mainline narrowbody fleet count.
Same as term sheet, with the addition of any airport where the average number of mainline daily departures exceeds 100 in the prior six months.
Company may enter into and maintain codeshare agreements under the following conditions:
• Alaska Airlines – the company can enter into unrestricted codesharing with Alaska with the exception of placing AA code on AS flights between Hawaii and DFW, LAX, SAN and ORD.
• Hawaiian Inter-island – the company can enter into unrestricted codesharing with Hawaiian Airlines for intra-Hawaii flights as long as American maintains a minimum average of 10 flights per day to Hawaii from the mainland. This will be measured on a rolling look-back period of 12 months.
• In addition to the points listed above, the company may enter into domestic codeshare relationships as long as the total ASMs of all of the aircraft that American places its code during a rolling 12 month period do not exceed 50% of the AA domestic scheduled monthly ASMs during that same period.
The International Baseline calculation will be modified such that new routes will not be added to the Baseline until the 3rd anniversary of AA’s operation of the route on either a year- round or seasonal basis. The International Baseline will be reset to the number of international block hours scheduled during July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2012.
Joint Ventures: Parties agree to work toward a fair allocation of flying for American in Joint Business Agreements. APA has the right to review initial JBAs and any material changes going forward.
