Wellll... can't believe this happened.. I was coming out of restaurant, tripped on curb, landed face down in concrete, 4 hrs in ER, nothing broken... look like I've been mugged - would scare small children!! Needless to say this canceled trip to Williamsburg.
I talked w/Jock, over 100+ going - say a prayer for them.
Anyone else of CR's group going? Please post what happened....

It is my understanding that the unlimited free Coach travel for longterm employees and retirees is still in place. Also that unlimited free coach travel for all employees and retirees, as has been the policy at USAir prior to merger, will be extended to all as soon as the two travel systems are merged. Please correct me if I am incorrect. Just heard that a friend, a former longtime AA FA, traveled IND/PHX Y on New American Airlines (former USAir route)for only the $2.00 service charge which is charged when we book and buy through the Interline travel on Jetnet. It used to be about $20 prior to the merger/takeover.

Hope this is helpful.

If anyone wants to get on my AA friends email list just send a request with you name and email address to: bethune2@flash.net. There are times when its published frequently and times when months go by without one - especially when I can't keep up!! Jock Bethune

Sandy-

In looking at the current "NRSA Charges" section on JetNet, it does seem to have a slightly different look than what I remember, but for the most part, I think it is much like what we have had in the past.

The confusing part is that the "D1/D2 EMP/RETIREE..." listing in the top chart is for new employees (with less than five years, I think). These employees would have to pay for coach travel at the rates listed in this first chart.

The chart at the bottom "D1/D2- 5 YEARS..." is the one that would apply to us (5 years or more of employment), and there is no charge listed for coach travel.

If I am wrong in this interpretation, someone please correct me.

Part of my confusion was that the top chart included "RETIREES"--I haven't yet figured out how you can be a RETIREE with less than five years of employment...

(And if there are people who do fit in this category, wouldn't that be a kick in the butt: to have to travel D2R... AND to have to pay coach service charges!?!)

I might be just me BUT there are now two segments, one at top which advises new charges, then at very bottom the one we know. May be just me... take a look. I don't think AAL has a mailer about it.

sandy phelps, I am not going to Williamsburg but I do receive Jock's newsletter. Your mention of our losing free coach travel is the first time I heard something like this. I will check it out, I did not receive anything from AAL indicating they were taking this away from us.

Sandy, Please let me know if you can be in Williamsburg? I can take reservations until approx. noon April 10 the day of the meeting. 817-274-1782 home 817-723-6650 cell.
If any of you have sent emails to management re: retiree travel, please send copies of them Monday or Tuesday or maybe even Wednesday to AMRRCretireetravel@gmail.com Retired f/a Jackie Phillips is copying them into a book to be presented to McDonald in Williamsburg to bring back to Doug Parker CEO.

Actually I think Natasha was doing a follow up to our previous questions, then she intended to drop the subject. Thanks for researching/answering some 'grey' material.
MOVING ALONG....
I noticed there are only 72 of us registered to this website. Anyone have suggestions how to get more 'members'?
I just looked at service charges... is it just me or did we loose free coach travel too? Am I just reading it wrong? I don't remember reading this in the AA posting.
Also a little confusion, I know active employees go before us.. but does this include their family/parents too? ARGhhhhhh
Third and MOST IMPORTANT, IS ANYONE GOING TO WILLIAMDSBURG, I'm thinking of strapping a 'boot' onto this leg then going (if doc will let me).. the only problem I think I'd have is walking the terminals. I've traveled to Williamsburg various times, the shortest driving (commuter connection)is from Newport News, the easiest airport to walk terminal is Richmond, about 45 min drive to presentation. Next is Norfolk, I think just over 1 hr drive.
I know Jock will be there, did everyone get his 'flyer' email? Hope everyone is on his mailing list he sends out personal AA newsletter. He's a great 'watch dog' for the lost benefits.
If you can't make it, do you think it would be appropriate to send him protest emails, he could print them out to present at meeting.
Does anyone else have topics to be questioned, other than our lost passes?
Happy landings to us all...
Sandy

Phyllis,
No the Kiwi never got to actually fly during the 1981 contract
negotiations. Although they went through a 2 week course to fly in case the 1981 contract was never sign according to APFA President Patt Gibbs. However 300 of the Kiwis were potential scabs as they went through American Flight Acadamy 2 week training. I know someone said enough but lets not forget this. We retired F/A never cross our former F/A picket line. And now I am a Kiwi and that goes for me too. I believe they have change hopefully..
Natasha
