American Airlines flights during holidays currently without pilots, says union

Recommended Posts

NEW YORK - If you can't book a ticket on Santa's sleigh, the holidays may become more of a travel nightmare than usual this year.

According to the pilot's union, thousands of American Airlines flights next month, including over the busy holiday travel period, do not have pilots assigned to them due to a computer glitch.

A union memo says Miami International Airport is a hub where unassigned flights originate.

The Allied Pilots Association says those flights on the largest passenger airline in the U.S. are now in jeopardy of being cancelled, leaving thousands of travelers stranded.

At least Christmas is going to be extra sweet for a few hundred pilots this year. Maybe teach those travellers some real Christmas spirit. High five to Christianity. Why we always letting the machine chew us up and spit us out anyway? Oh yeah...

 

Airline manager says, "come back for double times your wage on Christmas", pilot says "peace momma, see ya new year."  And it makes me die a little bit inside (:-p) I hope it was really worth it to ya.
