Airline employment fell 5.7 percent in October

According to AP and Forbes: “The nation’s airlines cut jobs by 5.7 percent in October to the lowest total since 1993 as they operated fewer flights than a year ago, according to a federal report Tuesday.”
“The agency said U.S. scheduled passenger airlines employed the equivalent of 394,300 full-time workers in October. Two part-time workers are counted as one full-time employee.”

According to comments: “The biggest cuts by percentage were at United Airlines, down 9.9 percent; Delta, 5.7 percent; and Northwest, 5.1 percent. US Airways cut 5 percent of its work force; American trimmed 3.9 percent; and Continental Airlines cut 3.8 percent. Alaska Air grew by 0.2 percent.”
