Why US Airways Wants a Deal with American
As for the logistics of a pilot seniority integration, which some see as a potential impediment to a merger given the failure to integrate pilot groups at US Airways, Ray said USAPA was ready in 2008 to act to enable a merger with United.
"We have a great deal of respect and worked closely for years with the Allied Pilots Association," which represents American pilots, Ray said. "The most complicating thing we see is fact that Doug Parker hasn't finished the merger with America West, but I think a fair contract for all, pilots, at both USAPA and APA, could enable a deal."
