The company's stock has fallen nearly 80% this year, mostly on concerns that labor costs and other contracts are becoming unmanageable. Shares were down some 6% Thursday on news that bankruptcy could become a very real possibility. Talks are going nowhere between AMR-owned American Airlines and a labor union representing the its pilots. American put forth a contract offer aimed at saving money, but the pilots' union said the proposal would fail in a vote by the rank and file. The two sides have decided to take a break until late November.That leaves the airline with no progress as it heads into its fourth straight yearly loss. The company already has the highest labor expenses in the industry. Here's the bind for the airline: It desperately needs to restructure, but it can't do that until it works out union agreements. It needs to lower its costs, but again, it can't do that unless the unions cooperate.AMR is the only major airline that has not declared bankruptcy in the last decade -- and that's part of the reason why its costs are so high.
