a lot of those guys who stayed out that long did it by choice. They had a good job and/or military thing going, and held onto their recall number until the last minute. Then swooped in with good seniority when THEY chose to.

Understood. I know 2 that it was a decade till given the chance at a recall (Plus or minus a year). One was twa the other was in 727 training sept 11. Started a 3 year clock once called I believe? I wouldn’t say they had good jobs in the meantime. Relatively speaking.

lol is this a real question? This is America....where you walk all over your employees, cut their pay and walk away with a huge golden parachute. This has happened how many times in the airline industry?

doubt many will hang it up if they had much of their retirement in the market.

AA is scheduled to retire ~ 5,500 by 2026.. very different then post 9/11. AA also has furlough pay.. anyone on property for over a year will get severance pay.

I also think a lot will depend on how many will take the early leave. Should see some numbers late today and more results on the 30th .
