The open letter copy reads in full as follows:

As a consumer who cares about the way a company treats its workers, I am shocked to learn that American Airlines offshores so many important jobs.

I’m equally frustrated that you’ve found another sneaky way to cut costs, which could cause a potential hazard to flyers like me.

Thank you.
