American Airlines due to a failure in the program, distributing holiday of employees furloughed in the second half of December, too many pilots.
The results showed that about 15 thousand flights, flight which was to take place during the Christmas holidays, staffed by a sufficient number of pilots. We are talking about flights from Boston, Washington, new York, Miami, Chicago, Philadelphia and several other cities.
Currently the company is looking for a way out. The airline has already sent an email to all pilots asking them to work overtime for an additional fee at the rate of which is one and a half times higher than the standard.
