AMR Faces Pilots’ Appeal Over Contract Rejection Ruling

Allied Pilots Association filed a notice it will appeal the bankruptcy judge’s ruling that allowed AMR Corp.’s American Airlines to throw out its labor agreement with pilots.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Sean Lane in Manhattan on Sept. 4 granted American’s request to reject the pilots’ contract, saying proposed changes to the agreement are necessary for the airline’s restructuring.
