Re: Article 26.E.1. – Investigation of IOD Claims of “Rough Air”

Dear John:
This letter will confirm our discussions during the course of negotiating the changes to Article 26.E.1. and determination of “rough air” in the absence of a Captain’s report of severe turbulence.

We agree that in the absence of such a report, Flight Service will investigate and make a determination of the presence or the lack of “rough air” as defined in Article 26.E.1.c. During the investigation, the following considerations will be taken into account, as applicable to each situation:

  1. AMR Event Center reports
  2. Report(s) by crewmembers assigned to the flight
  3. Purser/#1 Flight Attendant Report
  4. ATC/Dispatch and/or weather report(s)
  5. Reports by any other employee witness on the flight
  6. Nature and/or extent of any passenger/crewmember injuries on the flight due to turbulence
  7. Nature and/or extent of any aircraft damage as a result of turbulence
  8. AA Medical review of any IOD documentation to determine if injury is associated with the reported “air incident”.

In those isolated cases where there may be other types of evidence not listed above which Flight Service determines may be helpful in making the determination of “rough air”, such evidence may be taken into account as well.

Sincerely,

Sue Oliver
Senior Vice President
