I am back with yet another question about Eagle. I allready have heard that hiring will be cancelled for quite some time. Does anyone know what the policy is for Eagle pilots who want to move up to American. Is flow through gone? Do Eagel pilots still get to move up? Is this move up guarenteed? Thanks.

Crystal ball is IMC. Check back in a year.

Flow? What flow? We have a flow?

I think I'd be more worried about American guys flowing back to Eagle.
I have little idea how the AA/EGL flow works, but I really don't see American expanding at all - bankruptcies are usually about getting smaller.

There is no "flow" back to AE from AA anymore. That side letter to the AA and AE contracts expired years ago.
What is left from that is about 200ish AE pilots with seniority numbers at AA that still need to be exercised and 824 slots over at AA that are filled on a 1 for every 2 new hire basis when AA begins hiring again (some day).

The flow can not be canceled and there is no flow back for AA pilots. When hiring resumes at AA people will flow again. It's binding arbitration..not an agreement.
Actually people with numbers will flow before hiring as they are intertwined in the recall numbers.

No number, no flow

Thanks for the explanation - I knew even less than I thought!
