My condolences...for BOTH situations!
Half of the dads in my daughter's soccer team work for AA as pilots, mechanics, etc. Nowadays, they all just stand around talking about the latest AA issues instead of watching the game!
One of the dads is a 777 pilot. I believe he got demoted to flying a smaller jet, and he has sold two of his newer vehicles and opted for used ones.
Lots of AA presence in the mid-cities area, and you can look down the street of any neighborhood and see the realtor signs on just about every other house!
Sure hope things pick up soon!
