American Airlines is making a big tech switchover this weekend involving both pilots and planes,but everyone there is hopeful that travelers wonβt notice anything different. Almost three years after the merger that makes AA what it is now, the airline is switching to a single flight-operating system rather than the three separate systems. There are three groups of pilots who fly for American Airlines: those who flew for AA before the merger, those who flew for America West before it combined with US Airways, and those who flew for US Airways.
The change has been in the planning stage for months, and the decision was made to make thechange on a Saturday in early fall when fewer people are traveling.
