Default American's Hiring Plans

With several of the other majors hiring, is there any word on when AA may start hiring again. I read somewhere, sorry don't remember where, that AA will lose 80% of its pilots in the next 10 years due to retirements assuming age 60. It would seem that some hiring has to start soon. I know AE is hiring now.

According to airline pilot central, American has over 2800 pilots on furlough. Your grandchildren may get an opportunity to interview.

Even if American and the other legacy carriers were to suddenly start hiring, it's a job you wouldn't want now anyway.

i do not think they will lose 80% of their pilots over the next ten years.

there are close to 3000 on the street. recalls are expected for the summer ramp up next year. if they recall at 100 a month, it will take roughly a year and a half to recall them all (assuming a 50% retention rate).

AA has 2,890 pilots furloughed. They have not recalled one single pilot since 9-11, and no recalls are planned. If and when recalls occur, they will not bring back 100 pilots per month. The maximum capacity of their training academy is 50-55 pilot per month, so do the math. In the old days, 100 per month was 50 F/Os, and 50 F/Es; there are no longer F/Es, so the capacity remains 50/month.

AA's pilot group is very young, compared to CO/DL/US/NW and others. The average age of their pilots is in the mid/late-40s. There will be nowhere near 80% retiring in the near future, trust me.

the 100 per month was simply used by me for "easy" math. so with 50/mo. double what i said and say three years then to recall everyone (with a 50% retention rate).

Yeah, it could be 36 months before all AA pilots recalled. But, I think closer to 90-95% will take recall, unlike UAL which apparently has to call 3 pilots to et 1 to come back. Noone wants to be at the bottom of a large seniority list on RSV.

From my point of view, being furloughed for the last 4.5 years, that at least 50% will not go back to American. Thats just an estimate gleaned from the fact that most of my furloughed friends have found work elsewhere, SWA, FedEx, CAL, etc. or have lost the desire to work for any airline.
