American Airlines Scheduling Software Glitch Could Cost Company $10 Million
A glitch in the American Airlines scheduling software could cost the company millions of dollars.
Last week the Allied Pilots Association revealed thousands of holiday flights didn’t have pilots due to the scheduling error which gave too many employees time off.
To fix it, American Airlines and the union negotiated a pay increase for any pilots who offered to fly the unassigned flights.
A recent JP Morgan report estimates that could cost the airline about $10 million.
But, there’s good news for anxious travelers! No flights will be canceled.
