Where Is the Next Retirement Seminar? In Your Living Room!

Have you been meaning to attend one of the retirement seminars around the system but just haven’t been able to pull yourself off the sofa? Well, now you don’t have to! As a supplement to the local base visits, the retirement seminars have been split up into a series of six webinars you can now view on the retirement page of the APFA website.

You can also download the Good Slide! retirement handout to follow along as you view the presentation. For our new hires, we also have a special webinar just for you called 401(k): How To Avoid Working Forever!

Kid’s Day CLT- Thursday, April 26 from 9:00am – 3:30pm

The plans are officially underway for Kid’s Day CLT 2018. Because we do not have a traditional work environment, we are unable to host the traditional “take your kids to work day” when kids get to spend a full day with their parents on the job. Instead, our junior aviators will get to experience a behind the scenes day of our AA CLT operation by visiting the training center, the heavy maintenance hangar, the newly renovated AA ramp tower, and more.

Please note: due to safety and security concerns, the event will be capped at 85 participants. Registration will open on Thursday, April 5 at 10am.

How do you register? A link will be sent to all team members’ aa.com email Thursday morning.


  • Kid Participants must be between ages 7-18.
  • Participants must register via the link sent to their aa.com email when registration opens on Thursday, April 5 at 10am. Once 85 participants are reached the link will no longer be active. Incomplete registration will not be accepted.
  • A maximum of 3 participants per household are eligible to register.
  • This is for children of employees, unfortunately we are unable to accommodate neighbors, friends, etc.
  • The parent does not have to be present for your child to participate in the tour but must be available to pick-up your child(ren) at the conclusion of the event.
  • All  CLT-based American Airlines & wholly owned team members are eligible for their children to participate (max. 85 kids).
  • T-shirts and lunch will be provided for all participants.

We still have space for Kid Captains (Adult Chaperones) for the day’s event. Any questions should be emailed to Crystal.Jackson@aa.com.

As always, thank you for everything you do each and every day!
