WBS Airport doesn't expect lack of pilots for its American Airlines flights

WBS Airport doesn't expect lack of pilots for its American Airlines flights

It is unclear which specific routes have been affected and whether the issue extends to the airline's services to Asia-Pacific. Pilots were allowed to take vacation days in the last two weeks of December even if there wasn't another pilot available to operate the flight.

The system glitch allowed more American Airlines pilots to book holiday than should have been permitted. Revenue will take a hit if American has to scrub many flights. For American, however, it's a potential nightmare. "Like how are the pilots even going to get home to their families without other pilots to fly them there".

An American Airline spokesperson told Bloomberg the company has corrected the error which led to the scheduling problem in the first place. All other major US airlines advanced significantly, pushing an index of the five biggest USA carriers to the biggest increase in nearly two months.

Bullets lodged close to Reynolds in the front passenger's seat and her 4-year-old daughter in a auto seat in back. Reynolds said in a statement on Tuesday that what she experienced the night of Castile's shooting was "wrong".

Travel over the Thanksgiving holiday period was robust, and predictions are for similarly strong demand for air travel during the period between Christmas and New Year's.

When news broke of the mistake, Twitter users poked fun at the logistical snafu and questioned whether their own flights home would be affected.

"The airline is a 24/7 op", said pilot's union spokesman, Dennis Tajer. But the Allied Pilots Association, the union which represents American's pilots, called the extra-pay solution into question, warning that "neither APA nor the contract can guarantee the promised payment of the premium being offered". "This is a crisis right now, and in that crisis, they've gone solo".

"It's a big problem and we want to see it fixed but we haven't been approached by American management with a plan that works for them and works for us", said Overman. The system let pilots drop some trips they had been assigned next month because it incorrectly showed that there were sufficient crew members willing to pick up the flights.

The carrier has made adjustments and expects the schedule to function smoothly from now on.

American says only a few hundred of its late December flights remain without pilots, according to an Associated Press story.
