IT Spring 2013 All Hands Questions and Answers


Why even after spending millions of dollars and 2+ years on rebranding, there are talks about having different livery and brand for our company? Is it not a common sense to inherit what we have spent so far and continue with it? There are already many planes painted with the new symbol and many are in shops getting painted. It would be waste of time, money and energy to redo everything once again. What is your thought on these?

Brand is clearly an emotional topic - for everyone! Doug Parker has said that this is the “best brand work” he’s ever seen. That said, since we made that decision, we’d made a huge strategic corporate decision to merge with US. So we need to think about the impact of that on US Airways team, which is losing its identity, its headquarters, etc. No decisions have been made at this time about any change to the livery or look, so we shouldn’t jump to conclusions either way. And remember, brand is about much more than just the livery or backdrop at an airport. While those things are important, it’s much more about providing our customers with a robust and significantly expanded network, the best alliance partners, an upgraded fleet that will be one of the most modern in the industry, continued investment in products and services our customers value most, and a brand new American attitude reflective of our combined cultures. So we should try not to get too hung up about the paint job!

What does the merger mean for the ADEPT program?

Our recruiting needs the next year or two might be a bit lower but the merger shouldn’t impact the ADEPT program significantly.

Maya, Can you please discuss our plans to address our contractor labor model since it is so significantly different from US Airways?

Our contractor labor model is based on the overall corporate model that calls for a fixed and non-growing number of staff employees. Given that constraint we have managed increased demand for technology through the use of contractors. Until we know more about what the overall corporate model will be in the merged environment, it is not possible to determine what our approach to contract labor will be.

Apparently US Airways IT managers have relatively higher titles for similar areas of influence. For example, they may have fewer users or less infrastructure, but have a better title. My questions are: 1. How does compensation compare: is it equivalent, higher, or lower based on title or based on relative influence, and 2. How will we merge the two sets of managers to ensure that they can handle the new scale?

It is too soon to make broad generalizations about US Airways titles, levels, compensation etc. The work to integrate the two workforces will be a fairly lengthy process that will be done thoughtfully and carefully to ensure the right outcome.

Maya, what is one IT process or methodology from US Air that you think AA should be adopting?

Interestingly, both companies are very similar in terms of IT processes and methodologies. That said, I’ve seen a number of things at US Airways that I think make a lot of sense. One is that they have a centralized QA group that sets direction, standards, tool selection, and best practices around testing. This group also does QA for certain projects so they both “do” and “direct” which I think is a great mix. I think we would benefit from a somewhat more structured approach to QA.

Will any of the IT Depts/Groups have to relocate? If so, how will it be determined who relocates?

I can understand why you’re asking. During times like this with so much change it would be nice to have firm answers to a few questions – especially those “divided by me.” At this time, though, it’s too soon to predict an answer to your question with complete certainty. Based on early discussions, relocation is not anticipated, but there will be many details to work through in the months ahead.

How can someone become involved in the merger process?

Many people will just become naturally involved as the areas you support become part of the integration process. If, however, you mean being part of the Technology IMO or broader planning group, please make that desire known to your manager and/or MD.
