American Airlines 3x Guarantee

[서울=뉴시스] Reporter Kwon Seong-geun = A US airline, which suffered a large-scale cancellation due to a manpower shortage, has offered a large-scale incentive to prevent another disruption ahead of the winter peak season.

According to an internal document obtained by CNBC, the US economic media, on the 7th (local time), American Airlines will pay 1.5 times wages to flight attendants flying between the 23rd and 29th of this month and the 22nd of next month and the 2nd of January. .

The airline also decided to guarantee up to three times the hourly wage during the peak season during the winter vacation season if there is no absence from work from the 15th of this month to the 2nd of January next year.

David Seymour, American Airlines’ Chief Operating Officer, said: “We are focusing on workforce management and scheduling to provide certainty to our customers and team members alike. There will be enough support,” he said.

Earlier, American Airlines canceled more than 1,500 flights for three days starting on the 29th of last month due to bad weather and a shortage of manpower.

American Airlines canceled flight 342 on the 29th and flight 543 on the 30th. On the 31st, 634 flights, which accounted for 12% of the total, were canceled.

It is analyzed that the scale of flight cancellations has increased as many airline employees have resigned or entered unpaid leave due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but failed to secure replacement personnel.

Earlier this month, Southwest Airlines canceled more than 2,000 flights.
