American Airlines Careers & Info

CEO: Gerard Arpey

American Airlines, Inc., known by the stock ticker symbol AA, is one of the major airlines based in the United States. American Airlines is the world's largest airline in terms of passenger miles flown and passengers carried. The airline is the third largest in terms of aircraft operated and second in the world in terms of operating revenues. In 2005, the airline flew more than 138 billion revenue passenger miles.

American Airlines is a subsidiary of the AMR Corporation. Starting in 1929, a company called The Aviation Corporation was created with the purpose of acquiring new aviation companies. By 1930, the Aviation Corporation's smaller airline holdings were incorporated into a subsidiary known as American Airways, Inc. In 1934, American Airways was renamed and became American Airlines, Inc. The company has grown to become not only one of the largest airlines in the world, but also one of the biggest companies in terms of assets and revenue in the United States.

The company holds its headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. In fact, the offices are next to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. The airline operates flights everyday with destinations throughout the United States, the Caribbean, and Canada. Subsidiaries of the company also fly to South America, Europe, and Asia.

Working at American Airlines can be a great career path for people in a variety of fields. American Airlines careers include business management, accounting, customer service, and a variety of aviation specific careers such as pilots and stewardesses. American Airlines benefits typically include health care, a 401(k) plan, and average wages for the industry. The most famous and sought-after benefits, however, have to do with the industry itself. Employees of American Airlines are entitled to free travel for themselves on any American Airlines plane, subject to availability, and a limited number of free tickets for their family and friends. Pilots and other careers which are regulated by the FAA are offered generous pension benefits.

Current employees of the company report that the American Airlines culture is one of professionalism. The majority of employees are college educated and share a love of travel and adventure. While the company does require its employees to work on holidays and weekends in order to meet customer demands for round-the-clock travel, employees of American Airlines report that they accepted this as a condition of their employment, and can plan around it.
