AA pushed out so much **voluntary** leave to pilots. Not a single hour of what you linked to is being forced on them.
What's wrong with asking for voluntary leave? Sounds way better than the forced ~25% paycut that jetBlue is forcing on many staff members, unless I missed the memo and the 24 days of 'flexible furlough' is completely voluntary.
You do realize every carrier is doing this, right?
Only Jetblue and Delta (edit: and AS per poster below) are forcing unpaid involuntary leaves via reduced hours or forced time off. Every carrier is not doing this. Do your research.
All Carriers are reducing employees to normal minimum required hours: i.e. 40 hours for a full time employee, etc. Only Delta and JetBlue have gone further by involuntarily lowering below 40 hours/week.
