On Aug. 13, during Customer Experience Rewards Celebrations, American Airlines will award $10.4 million to approximately 69,000 employees for achieving customer satisfaction goals in the second quarter 2010.

    "Employees are taking the initiative to make our customers' travel as easy and positive as possible," said Bob Reding, American's Executive Vice President – Operations.
