Law360, New York (April 4, 2012, 8:47 PM EDT) -- A group representing former Trans World Airline pilots objected Tuesday to plans by American Airline Inc.'s parent AMR Corp. to jettison union agreements as part of its ongoing bankruptcy proceedings.

TWA joined American in a 2001 merger and shortly afterward went into bankruptcy as part of the arrangement.
