Two of American Airlines' three unions say they will seek a fresh vote on a pay-cut package designed to help the world's largest airline avoid bankruptcy. The move comes after CEO Don Carty apologizes for not telling employees in advance of an earlier vote that top executives would receive bonuses and special pension plans, despite the company's financial crisis.
