American Airlines, the world's largest air carrier, saw its revenues drop by $775 million in 2016 as it faced the same headwinds as the wider industry: fiercer fare competition and a strong U.S. dollar. The company's fleet shrank slightly in the year it added 55 planes and retired 71 but American still maintains the largest and youngest fleet of the main U.S. carriers. The airline's CEO, Doug Parker, continues to face pressure from American's pilots' union, which in February 2017 passed a vote of no confidence, citing delays in implementing their contract and a "toxic" work culture.
