American yesterday received board approval to invest $100 million in its maintenance business to aid its strategy of attracting more third-party work and make the unit self-supporting. The new investment will be used to update -- and possibly add to -- maintenance facilities, invest in new technology and make process improvements, the airline said. American and the Transport Workers Union will conduct due diligence on all potential spending of the new money.
