AA Leads Push for Universal IDs & Reciprocal Jumpseat Privs

American Airlines Leads Meeting to Push for Universal Identification Cards And Reciprocal Jumpseat Privileges

"This reciprocal agreement is extremely important to the men and women who crew our commercial planes and require this type of access to commute to work," said Kudwa.

Prior to Sept. 11, many American Airlines pilots often rode in the cockpits or "jumpseats" of other airlines through a reciprocal agreement to commute to work. Current rules and regulations resulting from the events of Sept. 11 now limit American Airlines pilots to the jumpseats of American or American Eagle aircraft.

In May, Kudwa, along with Jane Allen, Vice President - Flight Services, and Dan Garton, Executive Vice President - Customer Service, sent a letter to Transportation Security Administration Chief John Magaw urging him to implement a universal identification card for flight crews and other airport workers.
