US Airways cutting 1,000 jobs, shifting flying

Quote:
Struggling US Airways said Wednesday it will cut some 1,000 jobs next year, shift nearly all of its flying to its three hubs and Washington, and suspend several international routes.

The Tempe, Arizona-based airline said the job cuts will happen in the first half 2010 and will include 600 passenger and ramp service workers, 200 pilots, and about 150 flight attendants. The airline will close crew bases in Las Vegas and at LaGuardia airport in New York on Jan. 31, and in Boston on May 2.

I saw the other thread which concentrated on the flights being cut mainly LAS and the European ones but bigger news than that IMO is the jobs being cut. Just a month ago I was part of 300 that were laid off system wide, and now they announce another 600 customer service and ramp, and this time even pilots and FAs are cut as well.

Most of the cuts will be done by February, especially below the wing.

Sad news, my heart goes out to all the employees affected.  Sad

Obviously they need to raise baggage and other fees, bring back charging for soft drinks, and turn up the volume on the in-flight advertising. LOL.

Find a post in that other thread which mentions the employee cuts and I too will suggest the deletion.
