USAIR PILOTS REACH AGREEMENT ON WET LEASE OF USAIR AIRCRAFT BY BRITISH AIRWAYS

 WASHINGTON, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Capt. Pete Gauthier, chairman of the USAir pilots' Master Executive Council (a unit of the Air Line Pilots Association), announced today that the union and USAir management have reached agreement on a wet lease. The agreement covers certain aspects of flying that will be done by USAir pilots and Boeing 767 airplanes on British Airways' trans-Atlantic London routes. Under the terms of British Airways' $300 million investment in USAir, British Airways will wet lease airplanes (and crews) to fly the Pittsburgh- London, Baltimore-London, and Charlotte-London routes. The Pittsburgh- London flights will start June 1 with the other two routes being phased in over the next several months.
 Gauthier emphasized that this is a small but important step in the strategy of achieving job protection and job sharing among the USAir and British Airways pilots. The unfolding globalization of the airline industry makes these kinds of agreements necessary.
 Talks will continue in the months ahead between the pilots to form more comprehensive agreements relating to the sharing of jobs arising from new flying as a result of this alliance between USAir and British Airways.
