American ready to resume talks with pilots

According to the union representing American Airlines’ pilots, the airline is ready to resume talks.

Bruce Hicks, a spokesman for American, confirmed the carrier had told the pilots’ union in writing that it was ready to restart talks to try to reach a contract agreement.

Flight canceled? Travel insurance could have helped

Some insurance companies offer a trip cancellation policy that covers almost anything that can cause a flight to be canceled.

Frequent fliers can get Annual Travel Insurance for personal or business travel that covers trips or vacations throughout the year. This one includes everything from trip cancellation and interruption to unannounced strikes, weather delays and more – plus, it comes with coverage for medical expenses that might be incurred away from home. That’s especially important when traveling internationally.
