DALLAS (AP) — Pilots at North Texas-based American Airlines will vote again on whether to approve a contract offer from the company, which has been operating under bankruptcy protection for nearly a year.

The Allied Pilots Association said Friday its board voted 12-4 to accept a tentative agreement with American.

The 7,500 pilots rejected a previous company offer in August, and American responded by getting bankruptcy court approval to impose pay and benefit cuts.
