The pilots’ union, the Allied Pilots Association, has taken to social media to slam American Airlines’s management over scheduling complaints.
In video ads, the pilots insist their schedules are changed at the worst times, and the company doesn’t appear to care how the adjustments inconvenience them.
“I really have one responsibility, which is to make our employees proud,” the ad said, quoting United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby. “If our employees are proud of United Airlines, they’re going to want the customers to feel like they do about United.”
The ads depict American Airlines crew members receiving notices that their work schedule has changed at the last minute.
Another ad noted that “passengers deserve more reliable scheduling from American Airlines,” finishing with “pilots do, too.”
American Airlines did not respond to the Washington Examiner’s request for comment.
