Dear AA LA Reunion Friends -
The members of your AA LA Reunion Planning Committee are moving forward with exciting plans leading up to another big party at the Four Points by Sheraton LAX ~ 9750 Airport Blvd., Los Angeles, 90045. Our 2013 Reunion Weekend was a very memorable affAAir, highlighted by a presentation from our Guest of Honor, Mr. Robert
Crandall, Former Chairman & President of American Airlines. Over 400 friends and co-workers came together to see each other, some for the first time in many years. The laughter, hugs & memories overflowed during the amAAzing event. A brief summary of the party was included in a Wall Street Journal article the following week, see: http://blogs.wsj.com/middleseat/2013/10/15/remembering-when-flying-was-fun-with-airline-retirees/
After careful consideration, we have chosen to return to the same location as our previous party due to the favorable pricing for the ballroom and overnight accommodations. We learned many valuable lessons from some of the logistical errors at the 2013 event. This time, we will begin pre-registration earlier in the day, and have guaranteed seating for all attendees. In order to reduce overcrowding, we must limit attendance to the first 350 to respond with their registration payment. We will move all of the memorabilia displays, food, photos, and other items outside of the ballroom into adjoining areas. Once again, we are committed to keeping the registration pricing very affordable in order to encourage as many people as possible to attend this event. Please take advantage of our “Super Saver” registration rate - available for only $55 through the end of March 2016. “Advance Purchase” pricing at $75 per person will be in effect from April through August, and “Full Fare” pricing at $95 per person to be effective during the month of September and is subject to availability.
For those who choose to stay overnight at the hotel, we have secured a limited block of rooms at $119 per night. This discounted rate has been extended to a few days before and after our reunion party. Please call 310-645-4600 or 866-716-8133 ASAP to make your reservations so that we can increase the numbers in our room block. Your reservation is a credit card guarantee only and will not be charged until arrival. You must identify yourself as a member of the American Airlines Reunion
2016 group in order to receive the special rate. If you prefer to book your room online, you may use this link: https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/events/start.action?id=1602050576&key=2C30BB7C
As a reminder, this reunion party is open to all past and present LegAA cy American Airlines employees that have worked in any capacity and at any time over the past 75 years in any Greater Los Angeles location including WCRO & WRO Reservations

Dear AA Friends~
Due to the success and overwhelming demand for another reunion party, we are both delighted and excited to organize the 2016 Greater Los Angeles area LegAAcy American Airlines Employee Reunion Party. The party will be held on Saturday evening October 1st, 2016. All past, present and retired LegAAcy American Airlines employees from all departments in the Greater Los Angeles area will join together once again for another memorable fAAmily reunion celebration.
Our previous event in 2013 at the same venue was attended by over 425 guests. That “GalAAffair” was highlighted by the appearance of our former President and CEO – Mr. Robert Crandall. Here are links to the articles that were published in the Wall Street Journal about the party: http://blogs.wsj.com/middleseat/2013/10/15/remembering-when-flying-was-fun-with-airline-retirees/ and www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052702304066404579125453036598882.
Early “Super Saver” reunion party registration begins on January 1st. Seating is limited to 350 guests. Don't miss the opportunity to reconnect and reminisce with old friends and colleagues-please go now to the 2016 Registration and Payment Information page to get your admission to the Reunion Party.
After February 1st, 2016, a discounted block of hotel rooms will be available for reservation at the Four Points by Sheraton LAX. We have negotiated a discounted price of $119 per night (or $169 per night for a junior suite). Please call 310-645-4600 on or after February 1st to make your room reservation. YOU MUST IDENTIFY YOURSELF AS A MEMBER OF THE AMERICAN AIRLINES REUNION 2016 group in order to receive the special rate.
As a reminder and for clarification, this is not an AA company function. We are an independent group of retired, past & current AA employees that have organized for the purpose of bringing old friends and co-workers together to reconnect and reminisce about “the good old days.” This reunion party and our social media sites are dedicated to the memory of our dear friend and co-worker Stephen L. Allen. Over four years ago, Steve’s vision was to organize a party and a Facebook group for all our AA friends from throughout the Greater Los Angeles Area to reconnect and reminisce with each other. We will forever be grateful for his friendship, leadership, inspiration and big dream.
Feel free to contact the planning committee via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
You’re also welcome to call Bob Alexander, Planning Committee Chairman at 702-292-4530 or Carole Milligan, Vice Chairman at 818-703-7550 for more information.
We look forward to seeing you at the Greater Los Angeles Area LegAAcy American Airlines Employee Reunion Party on Saturday, October 1st, 2016.
