American Airlines to lay off 1200 workers






AMERICAN Airlines aims to lay off 1200 non-unionised workers, with its sights on sky caps, cargo staff, airport agents and reservationists, it revealed today.

Parent AMR Corp. is seeking $US1.25 billion ($1.2 billion) in annual concessions from its workers in order to reduce its costs and successfully restructure in bankruptcy-court protection.

Cutbacks include paring annual costs for its 10,000 non-union staff by $US95 million, or 20 per cent.

Next Monday, American will begin its argument in US Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan for why the judge should allow the company to abrogate its current labor agreements with its three big unions so that the carrier can impose terms on those workers, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The unions, representing pilots, flight attendants, mechanics and ground workers, will be able to mount their case for why they believe AMR is asking for too much next month.

The judge has indicated he will render a decision on June 6, and it is expected that he will encourage the parties to try to reach consensual agreements on new terms before then.

The Fort Worth-based carrier today said its staff changes will be implemented within the next 60 to 120 days, the Star-Telegram reported.

It also plans to shut its regional reservations office in Tucson, proposing to move some of the 750 agents there to home-based work, and make cutbacks in its premium traveler clubs.

“The decisions in reshaping these departments — including in some cases, outsourcing, creating different tiers of work, closing some operations and moving some work to home-based positions — were not made lightly,” said airline spokesman Bruce Hicks.

“While very difficult, all of these approaches are designed to preserve tens of thousands of jobs and return American to a sustainable, profitable airline.”

Why DGCA chief Bharat Bhushan was dismissed







It is not often that the head of a regulator is removed by the nodal ministry, even after the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet (ACC), headed by the prime minister, clears an extension. 

But, that's what recently happened to E K Bharat Bhushan, head of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

Bhushan, who recently got an extension from ACC, was ultimately shifted to the steel ministry as additional secretary and financial advisor. A joint secretary in the civil aviation ministry was asked to take charge.




What could have triggered his exit  ? Officials widely believe that Bhushan's opposition to a proposal allowing import of 15-year-old aircraft and allowing non-scheduled operators permit (NSOP) were the factors.



But the trigger could have been his plan to issue a show-cause notice to Kingfisher Airlines  . Kingfisher denied any involvement in his sacking, and the ministry produced a letter from the DGCA, giving a clean chit to the airline. Bhushan refrained from commenting for the story.



A 55-year-old Indian Administrative Service officer from the Kerala cadre, Bhushan holds a master's degree in public administration from Harvard University, where he was an Edward Mason international fellow.


He was widely considered one of the most active DGCA heads in the recent past.

Bhushan was responsible for busting a ring responsible for producing pilots with fake certificates, and action was taken even against DGCA officials who were found guilty.

The licence-granting process was computerised to prevent a repeat of such incidents. In a first, he also started the financial surveillance of airlines to make sure they do not compromise passenger safety.

Bhushan's peers call him a no-nonsense officer, who would not take any issue casually.

When a report of an aircraft that was landed by an IndiGo  pilot on its front wheels reached Bhushan's table, he checked the pilot's records, only to discover she had a fake licence.

An enquiry was instantly ordered, the pilot sacked, and the system cleaned, with checks and balances put in place.


Happy Landings ..........
