HIRING
Is Hiring?: Yes

Projected to hire 700 pilots in 2016.

While all AA/TWA pilots have been recalled, there are approximately 150 pilots at American Eagle with AA seniority numbers who will be given the opportunity to join AA before off-the-street hiring begins.

All remaining furloughed pilots may defer recall to American until May 1, 2016. Any furloughed pilot can notify the company that he desires to end the recall deferral, and in such case the company will recall the pilot in seniority order to the next available class date.
