American overstaffed by 20k employees

Postby Greg on Tue Jul 07, 2020 8:48 am

American CEO Doug Parker, in a note to staff, said the airline will be overstaffed by 20,000 workers, an ominous sign as the Oct. 1 deadline looms when airlines are able to lay off and furlough employees.

Carriers have been prohibited from doing so if they accepted government grants and loans from the CARES Act stimulus package passed in March.

“We currently anticipate having 20 to 30% — or more than 20,000 — more team members on payroll than we need to operate our schedule this fall,” Parker and President Robert Isom wrote.
