All the AA and US Airways connection carriers will be combined under the American Eagle brand due to the merger. In no particular order:

Envoy
Piedmont
PSA
Air Wisconsin
Mesa
SkyWest

They'll have to find one to replace us (Envoy) if we grow balls and vote this thing down. Or perhaps they'll just part us out evenly over the remaining 9.

Ok, thanks for your reply. Sorry to see all you "legacy" Eagle guys treated in such a way. Dumb question alert....with all this going on, is Air Wisconsin in a new contract yet? So etching beyond 2015? Just curious.

American Eagle changing its name to Envoy | American Airlines | American Airlines, bankr...

American Eagle is getting a new name — but the American Eagle name isn’t going away.

The regional carrier owned by American Airlines will become known as Envoy in March, American Airlines Group said Tuesday. It will continue to fly routes for American, which also contracts with other regional airlines to operate flights under the American Eagle name.

The name change is necessary as American Airlines expands its use of other regional carriers under a labor agreement negotiated with American’s pilots union in Bankruptcy Court. A year ago, American reached a deal with Republic Airways to operate 53 regional jets with 76 seats on routes for American Airlines using the American Eagle brand.

Envoy will still use the American Eagle brand and livery on its planes, and flights will be designated as flown by Envoy.

Airlines are required to disclose which carrier is operating the flight when a traveler buys a ticket. For example, a consumer can buy a ticket on American Airlines’ website for an American Eagle flight that will be operated by a third-party carrier like Republic.

“Our people and our company — which is one of the largest regional carriers in the world, with some of the best people in our business — deserve a name that is all our own,” said Pedro Fábregas, American Eagle’s new chief executive. “By taking on the Envoy name, we can better differentiate ourselves from the competition and better market ourselves. This is important for both our people and our company as we further expand our ground handling business.”

The new name comes a month after American Eagle’s former parent, AMR Corp., merged with US Airways to create American Airlines Group. US Airways’ regional subsidiaries, PSA and Piedmont, currently fly under the US Airways Express brand and will eventually transition to the American Eagle brand as well.

The new American has 10 carriers that provide regional service for American Airlines and US Airways, and all will eventually use the American Eagle name.

Major airlines like American and United are using more third-party regional carriers to provide flights to small and medium-size communities at a lower cost.

On Friday, American Eagle’s pilots union reached a new agreement that freezes pay but guarantees that American will use Eagle to operate 60 new Embraer regional jets that American has ordered. Union leaders have said American would look to other regional carriers to operate the jets if the pilots did not agree to concessions.

American said the new name was chosen after it looked at more than 1,000 names and took into account feedback from the airline’s 14,000 employees.

Previously, in its relationship with American, Republic Airways flew regional routes from Chicago O’Hare Airport under the American Connection brand to differentiate it from American Eagle. The companies announced in 2012 that the brand would be eliminated and that all regional flights would be operated under the American Eagle name.

In 2007, AMR announced that it planned to sell or divest American Eagle. But when the recession hit a year later, the company took Eagle off the market.

Doug Parker, American’s new chief executive, said he has made no decision about Eagle’s future.

“Divesting is not something we have even thought about looking at. I’m not saying we won’t one day, but we have much much more to do than spend our time worrying about whether or not we should spin that airline out or not,” Parker said during an interview in December. “We haven’t done a bit of work on that, and I don’t expect we will for some time. They are part of the airline.”

At least until it is strategically or financially beneficial to AAG for them not to be.

He didn't say they wouldn't, just that they hadn't thought about it yet as there were bigger concerns in the merger.

Good ole Gorilla Winkley put out a letter on this garbage AIP. If you listened to only Pedro and Winkley you'd think we all just hit the lottery.

P.S. Thanks Endeavor and PSA, he mentions you both specifically on why we need to take these cuts.

Envoy? Really? I bet they paid some ad firm a couple hundred thousand dollars and this was the best idea they could come up with..

Some times you can't make up stuff funnier than this....

Just stop... You're buying into the boogie man fear tatics. If they want to shut you down they'll shut you down no matter how much you cave. Comair voted yes to numerous concessions before they eventually were shutdown. Comair is much different when compared to you all. Comair struck and crippled Delta who never forgot and slowly dismantled them over the years.

Now if they want to shut your doors where wod they get the pilots and planes to fill your spot? Again, it would take YEARS to replace the gap your flying would leave... Look at XJT, think they're afraid???
Give the scare tatics a rest... If your afraid of a furlough, you shouldn't be in the airlines...
