American Airlines CEO Robert Isom announced that its pilots will receive a pay increase. “Our team will be paid well and be paid competitively. You are not going to fall behind network peers,” Isom said in a video message.

According to Isom, a pre-pandemic proposal was made to union of an initial 4 per cent increase followed by an annual increase of 3 percent. However, Isom said “the standard for compensation has gone up” as cited by CNBC.
