American Airlines, pilots union will again join air-safety program
30 March 2009

American Airlines and its pilots union, the Allied Pilots Association, agreed to re-establish the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP).
The voluntary reporting program will be resumed pending FAA approval.
The Allied Pilots Association said the program was suspended after American threatened pilots with disciplinary action related to ASAP reports. American says those pilots faced discipline because the incidents involved willful misconduct or otherwise didn’t belong within ASAP. (Dallas Morning News,)
