American Airlines

American Airlines announced Friday afternoon that they have filled all of the holiday season flights, after an error allowed pilots to schedule vacation during the high season. That number of open flights continues to decrease thanks to our pilots who are stepping up to the plate and picking up trips to ensure customers are taken care of.

About American Airlines Group American Airlines and American Eagle offer an average of almost 6,700 flights per day to almost 350 destinations in more than 50 countries. It's another example of why we are thankful to have such an incredible team.

It's all good news though for passengers scheduled to fly on American Airlines as both the carrier and the APA have confirmed that all flights in December will operate as scheduled.

The airline further stated that they employ a large number of reserve pilots in December, many of whom will be filling in for "trips that are now uncovered".

Florida State's Jimbo Fisher to take head coaching job at Texas A&M
Fisher spent eight seasons as the head coach at Florida State and guided the program to the 2013 national championship. He will replace Kevin Sumlin, who was sacked last weekend after going 51-26 in six seasons at Texas A&M.

American Airlines' pilots have reached an agreement with the carrier to staff every scheduled flight during the upcoming holiday season, avoiding cancellations that were threatened by a computer error.

But despite American's statement, the APA continues to dispute the airline's numbers.

If an agreement between both parties had not been agreed upon, flights between December 17 and December 31 would have been affected at many airports in American's network including some of its largest hubs such as Dallas/Fort Worth.
