Fort Worth, Texas (CNN) – The union for American Airlines pilots says it's getting closer to a deal with the airline.
The Allied Pilots Association says it hopes to reach an agreement to present to its board of directors sometime this week.
It says remaining sticking points include pay parity with other carriers, furlough protection and rules regarding regional carriers that feed American.
A spokesman for American Airlines declined to comment.
Airline management and the union returned to the bargaining table back in September.
They've been in a simmering dispute since the airline's parent company filed for bankruptcy protection last year.
