Nightmare Before Christmas For American Airlines

Glitch by the world's biggest airline could see 15000 festive flights grounded

American Airlines pilots appear to be giving up their holidays so travelers' vacations won't be ruined.

"While the overtime is legal, the way they're doling out is not in compliance with our contract", said Capt. Dennis Tajer, spokesman for the APA in an interview with CNN.

American Airlines Group said it has found pilots to staff all but "a few hundred" flights during next month's holiday season, easing concerns of major disruptions a day after a scheduling-system snag raised the possibility that as many as 15,000 would lack aviators.

"On Friday, management disclosed a failure within the pilot schedule bidding system". "The computer said, 'Hey ya'll. You got it." The airline is scrambling to fix the problem and says it does not expect any cancellations.

Speaking in the clip, the "Last Night" hitmaker confessed that 'With Mary, it was just her voice. She said the thieves only stole "materialistic things we didn't care about".

"That number of open flights continues to decrease thanks to our pilots who are stepping up to the plate and picking up trips to ensure customers are taken care of", said American Airlines' spokesman Matt Miller.

'Management's actions are in direct violation of your contract'. And we don't want to see that happening for our passengers'. "This is very unusual". As a result, the pilots' union estimates that 15,000 of the airline's flights between December 17th and the end of the year have not yet been allocated a pilot.

The glitch caused the scheduling system to show that American had ample staffing coverage for some planned flights when it actually didn't. Dallas/Fort Worth, Charlotte, New York LaGuardia, Chicago O'Hare and Philadelphia were all among the airports where American was offering extra pay in the latter part of the month, according to a copy of the memo obtained by Today in the Sky. Miller declined to comment on the potential cost of the higher compensation.

'We will work with the APA to take care of our pilots and ensure we get our customers to where they need to go over the holidays'.
