Pilots at an American Airlines Group Inc meeting recently denounced the company’s CEO, Doug Parker, for skipping out on a meeting with President Trump last week (per Yahoo).

Additionally, it sounds as though the pilots’ union has a bone to pick for other reasons, as well.

Check it out:

The pilots’ union, the Allied Pilots Association (APA), issued a symbolic vote of “no-confidence” in Parker’s leadership abilities. It also cited lagging pay increases compared to pilots at other carriers and “questionable economic and strategic decisions.”

American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller said in a statement that the union and the airline share the same goal and that they “have a solid foundation in place upon which to build.”

The company had said Parker was unable to attend the meeting with the President because of a previously-scheduled leadership conference.


  1. Here’s a big thank you to the Allied Pilots Association for their clear-headed vote and for calling out the CEO for snubbing President Trump.

    When they’re wearing our name, I think it’s not too much to ask that the company act like they respect America.

  2. Right, A conference from the Leader of the Free World is snubbed because of a “Leadership conference”. I’d say the American Airlines CEO has issues with his priorities.

  3. Really a stupid move for any CEO to not take advantage of an opportunity to tell the POTUS his company’s issues. Probably should be replaced ASAP before he screws up again.

  4. Hard to imagine what could be more important. I wouldn’t want to fly an airline with a CEO who thinks like a teenage girl.

  5. American Airlines is very Anti-American if you ask me!! I would have him FIRED!! How do you Snub the President of the United States??

  6. This idiotic CEO will come running to the Government for a bail out when they mismanage their company. He needs to be taught a lesson.

  7. Way to disenfranchise a large number of your customers, you petty little man.

    Another airline I plan to never fly. Wish CEO’s would keep politics out of their business.
