Pilot Problem costing airline millions

Posted: Updated:

An American Airlines scheduling glitch will cost the company millions.

A recent JP Morgan report estimates the airline will play about $10 million for the error.

Last week, the Allied Pilots Association revealed that thousands of holiday flights were without pilots due to a scheduling snafu that gave too many employees time off this Christmas.

To fix it, American and the union negotiated a pay increase for pilots who offered to fly the unassigned flights.

They say no flights will be canceled.
