Envoy’s (formerly American Eagle Airlines) (subsidiary of American Airlines Group) (Dallas/Fort Worth) pilots, represented by the Airline Pilots Association (ALPA), will not be voting on the new proposed company contract any time soon. The Master Executive Council of the American Eagle Pilot’s Union, voted down the latest contract proposal by the company. The company’s proposal would have given the company pilot work rule and further pay concessions in return for new Embraer 175 regional jets to be flown by Envoy’s pilots.
Envoy’s management has made it clear that if the contract was not approved the company would be reduced and aircraft reassigned to other American Eagle carriers. Once reduced in size, Envoy would be liquidated.
ALPA did not want its Envoy members to be flying for rates lower than other airlines and will now ask management about a timetable for liquidation. ALPA will help Envoy pilots find jobs at other carriers.
Is this the end of Envoy (like Delta’s Comair)?
