American Air Pilots List Demands

Pilots at AMR Corp.'s (AMR) American Airlines are seeking pay and retirement protections as part of the planned acquisition of Trans World Airlines Inc. (TWAIQ), but say the company has dragged its feet on talks even though the deal is near closing.
The Allied Pilots Association union, representing American's 11,000 pilots, has made a number of proposals to insure that none of its pilots lose ground on pay or other benefits by being bumped down in the pecking order as senior TWA pilots join the company.

American officials have said the union does not have power to
block the $742 million purchase of TWA. However, the pilots could
create problems, as they did when American bought tiny Reno Air in
late 1998.
