Compass Airlines, Inc. Key Developments

Compass Airlines to Operate 20 New Embraer E175 Aircraft Owned by American Airlines

Compass Airlines announced it will operate 20 new 76-seat Embraer E175 aircraft owned by American Airlines, Inc. Compass expects to begin taking delivery of the aircraft and start scheduled service under the American Eagle brand and livery in the first quarter of 2015. The agreement also provides American the option to place additional E175 aircraft it owns with Compass in the future. The addition of these 20 American aircraft will increase the fleet size of Compass Airlines to 62 aircraft, all of which are either Embraer E175 or E170 aircraft. The new E175s will offer American Airlines customers a more seamless transition from mainline to regional flights with 12 First Class seats, 20 Main Cabin Extra seats offering additional legroom and 44 seats in the Main Cabin. The aircraft will also feature modern cabin elements including in-flight Wi-Fi, full-size overhead bins, more spacious lavatories, leather seats and adjustable headrests.

Compass Airlines, Inc.'s Flight Attendants Authorize Strike

Compass Airlines, Inc.'s Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), authorized a strike should negotiations with management fail to reach an agreement that can be ratified. The strike was authorized by an overwhelming 94% of participating Flight Attendants. AFA has a trademarked strike strategy known as CHAOS or Create Havoc Around Our System(TM). With CHAOS, a strike could affect the entire system or a single flight. The union decides when, where and how to strike without notice to management or passengers. Management's refusal to address Flight Attendant concerns could lead to CHAOS if the National Mediation Board (NMB) declares that negotiations are deadlocked and releases the parties into a 30-day 'cooling-off' period and strike deadline.
