Delta Air Lines Inc (DAL.N) and the pilots association said on Sunday that about 2,300 pilots were trying to avoid the fur coats following a re-mixing process aimed at matching the flight to the summer of 2021.
Delta said this month he would have more pilots than needed because he reduced his network and fleet due to a drop in demand from the COVID-19 pandemic, but he was trying to avoid reluctant fur.
On Sunday, after the results of the “surplus” offer, which employees are asked to petition to existing positions at one of Delta’s seven US pilot bases, the airline will migrate about 7,000 pilots to different locations or aircraft types. He said that the Delta Supreme Board (MEC) of the Airta Pilots Association (ALPA) was not assigned to any category.
Delta confirmed that the results of the proposal “to better align our staff with our future flight demand” have been published and said “it looks at all options to reduce or minimize furloughs and will continue to work with ALPA to explore these options in the coming weeks. . “
With around 91,000 employees, Atlanta-based Delta unveiled details of early exit options for non-union employees such as severance pay, full healthcare coverage and travel benefits on Thursday.
Major US airlines, receiving billions of dollars in taxpayer assistance for payroll, have warned that the government should reduce its workforce when the ban on layoffs ends on September 30.
After the air travel demand almost disappeared in April, US airline executives drew attention to some green shoots, but the industry is not expected to return to pre-pandemic passenger traffic for at least three years.
He said that he continues to meet with Delta in potential early exit or voluntary leave programs, and that “management is optimistic that it will continue to interact with ALPA to protect pilot jobs”.
