A joint merger communication for employees of the new American

Creating a premier global carrier

Where in the World Are Our Employees?

Thanks to our reciprocal travel program, the people of American Airlines and US Airways have been devoting their free time to visiting lots of new and interesting destinations. We asked two of our jet-setting employees, Jack Glenn of American and Stacee Wells of US Airways, to tell us about their recent adventures.

Name: Stacee Wells, Analyst, Human Resources Records in the 401(k) & Savings Programs, US Airways

Travel route: DFW—Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA)

“I traveled on US Airways to DFW, then American to XNA, the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport in Bentonville, Arkansas last Wednesday and returned to DFW yesterday and caught an American flight back to PHX,” said Stacee.

“It’s so nice to have the option of getting to XNA on American out of DFW,” said Stacee.

“The American ticket and gate agents were very friendly and I really like the monitors in the gate areas at American that have the standby lists displayed for the flight. The monitor lets you know when you have been cleared for a seat.”

Name: Jack Glenn, Business Analyst – Horizon Program/Crew Management System, American

Travel route: Seattle (SEA)—Phoenix (PHX)—DFW

“Our original American Seattle to DFW flight got cancelled due to a mechanical issue, so it’s a sweet deal to have reduced rate on US Airways,” said Jack. “Using the myIDtravel application we were able to quickly look at our options and buy the tickets. We walked down to the US Airways gate, checked in and we were on our way.”

“The best part of flying US Airways this time was the coincidence that our longtime friend Jerry Mogridge, who is a US Airways employee, was non-revving on our flight from SEA to PHX! It was also our first time flying on an A-321, which was fun because I know American will soon be taking new deliveries. And while onboard, I noticed that US Airways offers mojitos and cosmopolitans for festive cocktail options,” said Glenn.

“I’m flying to London in June for a concert and continuing to Nice for a few days before returning home from Paris. It’s good to know we have US Airways as an inexpensive option if the American flights fill up.”

Culture Club: Celebrating Aviation Maintenance Technician Day

Aviation Maintenance Technician Day, observed annually on May 24, is a national day of recognition for the hard-working maintenance technicians in our industry. Each year American and US Airways host special events to honor the outstanding work these men and women do to keep our planes flying safely and reliably. This year, the celebrations will also include some American-US Airways bonding. One such example is the Northeast Division where Mike Trochalakis, American’s Line Maintenance Managing Director for the division, has invited US Airways colleagues to join in the festivities at LaGuardia Airport in New York (LGA), Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in D.C. (DCA) and Logan International Airport in Boston (BOS).

Name: George Monahan, Instructor – Aircraft Maintenance, Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), American

Number of years at American: Twelve, but 53 if you include my time at TWA, where I began working in 1960.

What made you decide to be an airline mechanic? As a kid, I liked fixing things and airplanes always intrigued me. So I went to school to get my FAA Airframe and Powerplant License.

What is your favorite aircraft to maintain? Probably the Boeing 767 – it was a major change from previous aircraft and a new challenge because it was much more electronic and software driven. All the latest aircraft, like the 777, I find interesting. You can never know too much about a 777.

How does it feel to carry the title Master Mechanic? I’m proud. The last I looked less than 1,500 people have it. I’ve been a training instructor since 1979 so I feel like I’ve influenced a lot of AMTs – hopefully in the right direction. [My advice to them is] always be open to learning, things are changing all the time so you have to be open to learning.

Name: Frank “Charlie” Schwertz—Base Maintenance Inspector, Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), US Airways

Number of years at US Airways: Forty-nine, including time at Mohawk Airlines and Allegheny Airlines.

What made you decide to be an airline mechanic? It all began for me in May 1962 when I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force joining the 911th Troop Carrier Group at the Greater Pittsburgh International Airport. Late in October 1962 I returned to Pittsburgh after basic training and began working in the 911th engine shop. The rest is history.

What is your favorite aircraft to maintain? I’m really impressed with the Airbus. It’s a durable and rigid aircraft with simple systems. I had the chance to serve as a member of the Airbus Fleet Engine Selection Committee and Airbus Training Review Committee and overall I’ve been really impressed with Airbus.

How does it feel to carry the title Master Mechanic? The intuitiveness and the inventiveness of Charles Taylor and the Wright Brothers is what got me here. I’ve seen the early part of aviation and the tremendous advancements since. I’m just blown away. It’s certainly a privilege and I understand what it means to be a Master Mechanic. I’ll finish 50 years with the airline next year. It might be worthwhile to stick around to see what happens with the new American!

George Monahan was named a Master Mechanic in August of 2009. Above, front, he stands with his Boston crew after the FAA’s official presentation, which coincided with Monahan’s 50 years of service celebration in January 2010.

FAA’s Charles E. Taylor Master Mechanic Award: Achieving the distinction of being named a Master Mechanic doesn’t come easy – it takes five decades of hard work in the aviation maintenance field. The award is named for Charles Taylor, the mechanic who maintained the Wright Brothers’ airplane and is deemed the “Father of Aviation Maintenance.”

PHL’s magnificent international Terminal A. The 800,000 square foot facility accommodates nearly 4 million international passengers annually.

Hub Love: Philadelphia (PHL)

The home of US Airways’ trans-Atlantic gateway, Philadelphia International Airport opened in 1940 as Philadelphia Municipal Airport and handled 40,000 passengers annually. Today, PHL utilizes seven terminal buildings on 2,370 acres to accommodate more than 30 million passengers each year on more than 440,000 aircraft takeoffs and landings.

Philadelphia International Airport

> PHL has a $14.4 billion economic impact on the region, making it one of the largest economic engines in Pennsylvania.

> US Airways is investing more than $117 million on a new terminal facility, a new home for its Express operation that includes a refreshed US Airways Club!

> US Airways’ Philly operations have green bragging rights: the company’s ground service equipment (GSE) facility has 131 electric bag tugs and belt loaders, more than any airport on the East Coast. The facility is the only LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified building at PHL, and won the American Council of Engineering Companies’ Engineering Excellence Award in 2012.

> US Airways’ international seasonal service is in full swing out of PHL, with flights to Shannon, Ireland (SNN), Glasgow, Scotland (GLA), Venice, Italy (VCE), Athens, Greece (ATH), Barcelona, Spain (BCN) and Lisbon, Portugal (LIS), as well as a second flight to Frankfurt, Germany (FRA).

Philadelphia Fun Facts

> From the airport, it’s a quick trip to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall or to grab a famous Philly cheesesteak sandwich. Downtown Philadelphia is just seven miles from PHL and trains run every 30 minutes during the day.

> Philadelphians Townsend Speakman and Benjamin Jackson invented soda water and mustard, respectively. Both go great with Philadelphia’s famous pretzels. Yum.

How Will the Merger Benefit Philadelphia?

> The new American will have more service on the East Coast than any other airline in the world, putting Philadelphia in a prime position to benefit from the company’s combined network.

> PHL will have access to many more domestic and international destinations – together, American and US Airways currently operate 459 flights out of PHL daily, serving 114 nonstop destinations from 87 gates.

Thoughts from Third Parties

“I believe this merger would greatly benefit the thousands of local families whose livelihoods already revolve around the strength of PHL and its airlines. By spurring additional economic activity in the region, the new company would also directly and indirectly create many new jobs and development opportunities.”

- Michael Nutter, Mayor, City of Philadelphia (3.15.13)

“Philadelphia offers opportunities to the new airline that they might not get at JFK, given capacity limitations and congestion issues.”

- Mark Gale, CEO, Philadelphia International Airport (2.15.13)

“This is a major company with a large stake in the Philadelphia region. They are creating the largest airline in the history of the world. That is really a major accomplishment and one that I’m sure the people of US Air and American are excited about and I think it will be really good news for Philadelphia.”

- Tom Morr, President and CEO, Select Greater Philadelphia

Beth Etling and Mary Wagner, both American Airlines Agents, celebrate Philadelphia’s first Customer Cup win.

American team members in Philadelphia recently won their first Customer Cup, a quarterly award presented to the five domestic and four international stations that make the most customer experience improvements. “The entire team came together and tried new things to make our customers happy,” said Allen Mundell, Customer Services Manager, American.
