American Airlines offers incentives for employees who get the vaccine

American Airlines is offering a couple of perks for employees who get a COVID-19 vaccine, according to a letter American management sent to employees Friday. U.S.-based employees who get the vaccine will receive an extra vacation day in 2022 and $50 in recognition points. American Airlines Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: AAL) has over 102,000 employees as of Dec. 31, 2020. "As we close out the first week of March, we remain optimistic that 2021 will be a year of recovery for American. We still don’t… ( More...

Ha anyone seen the Flight Aware comment page? I must have missed it somehow between the article and -- whatever this page is....

I think it is a good idea to incentivize people to get the vaccine. You will never get 100 percent of people to get vaccinated. Less than 50 percent of people get the flu vaccine every year( BTW--Very little influenza this year so mask and social distance doubters take note.) Personally I am glad to have taken my vaccine. As a physician it is good science. If you don't want the vaccine fine by me but if you get sick from Covid stay home and do not burden the hospitals or infect anyone else.

Great attitude "doctor" I am so happy the medical field has produced such outstanding talent. You are obviously a tool and a dull one at that.
aurodoc 2
You are a funny guy. You might not be so "happy" when I am the last person you see before I slide that endotracheal tube down your throat
Steven Heckler -5
You are not a doctor. I won't need to be concerned about your likes, you will be the guy having a cytokine storm immune response we will hear about in a few months when you are introduced to a non-patented virus from nature! How does it feel to have a ticking time bomb in your cells?

Great comment "Doctor". If you don't do what I say then just go away and die. Have you ever thought about keeping your Vitamin D levels normal or above normal? How about taking Ivermectin?

To quote you:
"just go away and die"

The best thing you have said so far.

I guess "aurodoc" has yet to read the Morell/Kaufman/Cowan "Statement On Virus Isolation (SOVI)" posted here:

The last few lines present a serious threat to YOUR BOGUS CONCLUSIONS:

"Finally, if pathogenic viruses don’t exist, then what is going into those injectable devices erroneously called “vaccines,” and what is their purpose? This scientific question is the most urgent and relevant one of our time.

We are correct. The SARS-CoV2 virus does not exist.

Everyone get vaccinated! To Hell with you naysayers!!
I respect your opinion captain, but I don't agree. I wish you the best with your health.
Wow you got downvoted for that? What is this reddit or something?
John Prukop 4
Spencer... It's Captain Waters new "social credit score!"
There are a surprising number of anti-vaxxers here.
Art Pauly -6
That's all some can do is ridicule and call us "anti-vaxxers". What that means is you have no real argument against what we are saying. And, you are not willing to find out if what we are saying is true. All we are saying is check it out for yourself. Don't just do what the media and govt. tell you to do. Neither have your best interest in mind. Be responsible and get the facts and make up your own mind.

I get the flu, pneumonia, & shingles shot every year, but I won’t get a Chinese flu shot even though I have several underlying conditions. Hasn’t been tested enough. Myself & 543,000 or so others were forced to take ‘experimental vaccines’ & a daily pyridostigmine bromide tablet not knowing what Iraq would spring on the troops in Saudi Arabia for Desert Shield/Desert Storm.

That resulted in a lot of otherwise healthy soldiers come down w/unexplained illnesses to the point some couldn’t work & lost everything. My units Executive Officer contracted Guillain Barre Syndrome & died two years after our return that was probably due to all the untested crap we had to take. No, I won’t take relatively untested & fast tracked vaccines for @ least five years for something that’s 99.95% survivable. I’ve made it known I’ll do anything & everything in my power to keep from taking one. Ever wonder why liability protections against the manufacturers were enacted?

I haven’t worn a face diaper that isn’t effective @ all against viruses all this time, either. If I catch the Chinese flu, fine. If I die from it, then so be it; it’s been a great life.

Go ahead, flame away

Who knows what the troops were exposed to while over there in 1991. The bigger crime is the U.S.government denying the existence of the Gulf War Syndrome. By denying it they didn't have to treat the illness. I think they should have. They sent them over they should be responsible for the lifetime healthcare of veterans. The state of New York did the same thing to first responders after 9/11 they too should have been held financially responsible for medical treatment.

I chose to be vaccinated because I have friends who have illness that make it easy for them to get sick.I don't want to be the cause of their death.
Art, You say all who think it is wise to get the vaccine are uninformed and wrong but you are correct. My data that says it is wise comes from the CDC, the WHO, what the foreign countries are seeing, the local medical officials, and many more with personal testimonies. Where do you get your info, the tabloids? I guess "to each his own" and you are entitled to your opinion. I just hope you don't end up with a personal testimony contrary to your current beliefs.

Please show us the do not treat form you have so when you get infected, we (society in general) will not have do deal with you.

What about perks for vaccinated passengers?

You get autoimmune disorders in six to ten years. Sincerely, good luck :/
this is a great idea..there are still a lot of people,younger ones especially, who dont see the need to get a shot...there are now 4 strains of the virus and the newer ones are more contagious,so airline employees as front line workers should be concerned..its not just the "older folks" now!
Daniel Behr -5
And you believe our government.... ? Please research! It’s for your own good.

If the vaccine was such a good thing, they wouldn't need to offer incentives.

Near where I live people are scrambling to find available vaccines. Some are waiting in pharmacies at the end of the day to see if they have any left-over doses (since once they thaw and open a vial they need to use all 5 or 6 doses within hours). Some are driving 2 hours to a pharmacy and 2 hours back home, and they'll do it all again when it's time for their second shot.

All the available vaccines in the U.S. (Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson) have 100% efficacy against hospitalization and death.

Sadly there's rampant misinformation surrounding vaccines in general and COVID specifically. You need look no further than these forums to see it. In fact, it looks like you're guilty of it.
John Prukop 2
Dear "Clarify"... You're watching WAY TOO MUCH TEL-A-LIE-VISION and their 24/7 CoVaids propagranda news cycles!

Yes !! Exactly ! It's not a good thing at all. PLEASE !!! Everyone research what Dr, Sherri Tenpenny has to say about this vaccine and it's potentially deadly effects !!
Dw Mack 6
Sherri Tenpenny is an American osteopathic physician and anti-vaccination activist who supports the disproved hypothesis that vaccines cause autism.[1] She is the author of four books opposing vaccination, and her 2015 lecture tour of Australia was cancelled due to a public outcry over her views on vaccination, which go against the established scientific consensus.[1]
John Prukop 3
Dw Mack: The "established scientific concensus" is VERY askew. Do your own research. Dr. Tenpenny, Dr. Lorraine Day, Dr. Ansdrew Kaufman and Dr. Thomas Cowan and hundreds of other distinguished physicians DISAGREE with you and the "ESC" bigtime. Ask yoursself the question, WHO BENEFITS? Actually that's a FACT because the WHO benefits as well as Fauci's backpocket, BIG Pharma Ah, and especially Bill Gates! NONE OF THEM HAVE YOUR BEST INTERESTS IN MIND as they are all part of Agenda 21/Agenda 2030 and the global depopulation program. Especially the Eugenicist Gates Foundation. Tune in to Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum and hear him lathering up at the prospect of taking advantage of this planned SCAMdemic!
Daniel Behr 1
Agree 100% Lynette! Ask yourselves why the government is spending over a billion $’s on “educating” the public on the vaccine. Doesn’t make sense. Before taking it, go on the CDC website and see what is in it. If not your on your own, good luck.

Getting vaccinated should felt like a privilege... I felt nowadays a lot of people forgot the old days when a simple infection can kill you, your friends and family. Just 100 years ago we had to anxiously wait for anti-toxin been transported by dog sleds...

Of course, some perks is always nice ;)
John Prukop 1
Of course the corporations are sucking the hind teat of government CoVid-19 subsidies to stay afloat. Without that symbiotic relationship, they'd fold like a cheap suit! Better wake-up folks, corporate America is in lockstep with GOV just like corporate mainstream media... and they are NOT your friend. They are leading all of you down a rat hole.

Good luck folks, delayed reaction is part of the deal when you are introduced to the virus from nature, your immune response will create a cytokine storm. I will stay in the holding pattern while you all fly right into the micro burst!

How true Steven. We're already seeing the tragic, horrifying numbers of deaths related to the Pfizer and Moderna EXPERIMENTAL" JABS which have NOT been approved by the FDA. Those TV brainwashed Sheople who are going ahead with the so-called "vaccine" - which it is not - should be getting their final affairs in order and reserve a plot at the cemetery with a pine box. The numbers aren't pretty. Have a look:
Steven Heckler -6
I love the sheep that are pretending to be lab rats. Wonder what the media will tell the sheep is the problem when thousands end up in the hospitals dying from immune responses that end up killing them. "We need 100 percent vaccination and we have a new one coming out every month" Take the vaccine or you can't go on a stinking airliner to travel! This is a bad Joke. Oh better yet, blame the peeps that were wise enough to not participate in the mass extinction event! Yeah that the ticket!
Art Pauly -8
When someone tells me to shut up and take the vaccine, I pull away even farther. Do you know the FDA calls this an experimental vaccine? There are other less dangerous ways to protect yourself from the Chinese Virus. Check it out and make up your own mind. Check out Remember it's against the law for anyone to force you to tell them whether or not you have had the experimental vaccine. If you are sick, STAY HOME. According to the CDC, You cannot transmit the virus if you have no active symptoms.

I've done all the research. I am still taking the vaccine, especially given my preexisting conditions that could KILL ME if I get COVID, and in fact my second dose is next week.

I don't necessarily trust Big Pharma or the Gov'mint, but I do trust science. I encourage those who are skeptics to trust the science as well.
Daniel Behr -8
The government IS behind the science. They only tell you what THEY want you to hear. People will continue to trust our leaders when they all are corrupt and for themselves. So much history that never makes it into our children’s history books. Just do you homework.
John Prukop -1
Amen Daniel Behr. You are telling it just like it is. Truth be known, the DARPA/Moderna JAB is NOT a vaccine, but rather, an operating system to make you sick, just as Dr. Carrie Madej has pointed out in her BitChute videos. It's all a part of the UN's Agenda 21/Agenda 2030 programmes for world wide population reduction - something that Eugenicist Bill Gates LOVES talking about!
Daniel Behr 2
Gee I wonder why Bill Gates likes to talk about it. I wish people would open their eyes to what is going on. To many have said”No....not my government. They have my best interest in mind” wake up people. Ever hear about putting a frog in cold water and slowly turning the heat up vs just dropping it in boiling water right off? The heat is being turned up people. It’s getting warm.

You state: "According to the CDC, You cannot transmit the virus if you have no active symptoms."

That may have been true early on, but the CDC has adapted as evidence has mounted and now is very clear that asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic individuals can spread the virus.

"People who are infected but do not show symptoms can also spread the virus to others."

CDC Report titled _Evidence Supporting Transmission of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 While Presymptomatic or Asymptomatic_

Here's a CDC slide deck -- look at slides 2--4:

And here's the New England Journal of Medicine on the topic:
Dw Mack 1
Experimental coronavirus vaccine highly effective -
John Prukop 2
Dw Mack: You need to know when you're being bamboozled with highly sophisticated propaganda!

After you read Chapter 3 of the book "VIRUS MANIA" by German internist Dr. Claus Kohnlein concerning Fauci's FIRST FRAUD with his phony AIDS/HIV and AZT ruse, you'll perhaps awaken from your deep propaganda.

Fauci should be tried for crimes against humanity, if not murder, along with his co-hort Deborah Birx, and every person who has aided and abetted these crimes - including a complicit 'lockstep' news media.

Here's a link to the book to read on-line:

You've gotta a LOT of learnin' to do my friend!

Thanks for your thoughtful and intelligent response! I can't understand these folks that get angry with anyone that questions the experimental gene therapy. It is not even a vaccine!

The folks at Emirates believe that to be so.
John Prukop 0
Don't forget WillyRoss that the word believe contains the word LIE, i.e. "beLIEve!" And everything being spewed 24/7 on the controlled mainstream media is in lockstep with Fraduster Fauci's LIES. Don't forget that this is Fauci's SECOND ROUND OF FRAUD, the first being his AIDS/HIV and AZT fiasco. For the story on that, see Chapter 3 of 'VIRUS MANIA' by German internist Dr. Claus Kohnlein, MD and the true story of Magic Johnson. After reading that chapter alone, you will see WHY Fauci should be arrested for MURDER!

There's not one company that's mandating the vaccine.
