Do’s and Don’ts
With a planned merger close date of December 9, 2013, American Airlines and US Airways will continue to operate as separately certificated carriers until the FAA approves a Single Operating Certificate, which is expected to take 18-24 months.

RE: Opening Day Merger Activities
Based on feedback from some of our Presidents, and in order to illustrate our unequivocal support for our brothers and sisters in TWU Locals at US Airways currently being ignored during unproductive negotiations, we have made the decision not to be involved in opening day ceremonies celebrating the merger.
Brothers and Sisters,
We have been receiving many inquiries regarding the upcoming equity distribution from the American Airlines Bankruptcy Settlement. There have been several informational notifications regarding this upcoming distribution. All the information associated with the distribution have been posted on the TWU.

RE: AA Equity Distribution
Dear Brothers and Sisters:
The closing of the merger between American Airlines and US Airways is now upon us, and as a result, the distribution to TWU-represented employees of equity in the new merged company is also imminent—the current plan is for it to take place on Monday, December 9, 2013.
