VERBATIM: American’s CEO Robert Isom says he’s ready to give pilots raises and higher retirement contributions that would average 40% over four years. Isom says top-pay for a senior pilot would hit $590,000 by the end of the deal. Meanwhile, the Allied Pilots Association says its board has decided to survey members on authorizing a strike. A union spokesman says the strike vote has been contemplated for several months as a backup in case the union can’t reach a deal with American.
