Article also states that they are slashing 11% additional capacity. Seems like the earlier slashes, of routes here and there was the beginning.

And what about this:

The reduction of 900 flight attendant jobs equals only 5 percent of the airline's 18,000 active flight attendants, and the reaction among the employees this week was one of relief — they expected a much bigger cut.

...I HOPE oil getting up every day can STOP as soon as possible!!!!

It doesn't say that anywhere. They have not announced further capacity cuts past the already announced 11-12%.
