The union that represents pilots at American Airlines wants managers at the airline who are responsible for operations to be sacked and replaced due to the hundreds of flight disruptions that affected tens of thousands of passengers in recent months.

The Allied Pilots Association board of directors approved a resolution calling on the airline to install new operations managers.  The resolution said that the current staff failed to provide passengers with reliable service and, in turn, damaged the carrier’s brand.

The board “believes it is in the best interest of the American Airlines shareholders, employees, the communities it serves, and the traveling public for the management team members who control the American Airlines operation be replaced,” the resolution stated.

The resolution contends that over 60,000 passengers were hit with cancellations on Father’s Day weekend in June alone.
