DALLAS (AP) - American Airlines and its pilots' union have agreed to resume stalled contract negotiations.
The union also said Tuesday that it will delay releasing results of a strike-authorization vote scheduled to end Wednesday.
The developments could lead to a breakthrough in a bitter standoff between the nation's third-biggest airline and its 7,500 active pilots.
Thomas Horton, CEO of American parent AMR Corp., which is operating under bankruptcy protection, said Tuesday he was pleased that "intensive bargaining" was scheduled to begin this week.
