  9. American Airlines to cutting 1,500 maintenance jobs around the U.S. Fri Jul 18, 9:35 PM David Koenig, The Associated Press Email Story IM Story Printable View By David Koenig, The Associated Press DALLAS - American Airlines will cut 1,500 jobs in its maintenance division as it reduces its fleet of aircraft. The largest U.S. airline told employees of the cuts in memos this week. American didn't break down the cuts by location. Tami McLallen, a spokeswoman for the airline, said those decisions had not yet been made. The airline has maintenance hubs in Kansas City, Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Fort Worth, Texas, plus many smaller bases around the United States. Besides maintaining American's jets, workers at the hubs also work on jets brought in by other carriers. American has about 14,000 employees in its maintenance division, including management and support staff, and 13,000 of them are represented by the Transport Workers Union. The cuts include 1,300 mechanics and 200 management and support staff, she said. The Fort Worth, Texas-based airline, part of AMR Corp., announced two weeks ago it would shed eight per cent of its work force - about 6,800 jobs - to cope with financial distress brought on by record fuel costs and a weakening economy. The company has publicly identified only a portion of those cuts. It has said it will eliminate 900 flight attendant jobs and 200 pilot positions. The company is offering buyouts to senior employees to reduce the need for layoffs. Chief Financial Officer Tom Horton hinted at the latest cuts when he said this week that American's maintenance organization was built for a much bigger airline than the one that will emerge after announced reductions in capacity. American plans to cut its U.S. flying by up to 12 per cent after the busy summer travel season ends. On Wednesday, American announced it would speed up the retirement of its 34 Airbus A-300 aircraft by the end of next year instead of waiting until 2012. American and its feeder carrier, American Eagle, will ground 103 planes this year. AMR lost $1.45 billion in the April-to-June quarter, most of it due to writing down the value of aircraft. Excluding those charges, the loss was $284 million. AMR shares rose 22 cents, or 3.2 per cent, to $7.13 in Friday trading.

  12. YYC and "THE STORM"

    and as soon as that plant starts to run....the landing fees rise.
  13. on the other side of the A/C in YLW...A friend of mine said today that HMY are still employing people for various things. They are still re-doing their FA manuals, the chief pilot and DOM are still employeed there. But with no planes...How long.............................................................
  14. I had many conversation to their mech's about the 57's and MYC and MYD were POS and MYE and the leased white one (when they had it) were good. It just seemed evertime you seen the planes on the ground the cowls were open for long periods of times with equipment everywhere and the avionics bay always seemed to have ladders and leggs hanging as well... Just my 2 cents
