US Airways thought Monday it will add 500 flight entourage and pilots next year more often than not to wrap planned retirements and abrasion.
It will present the jobs to furloughed employees first and then hire from exterior the company. The plan is to fill 420 flight assistant openings and 80 pilot spots.
Behind the recall, the Tempe, Ariz., airline will have up to 100 pilots on unpaid leave, but no more flight entourage on that list.
When the procedure is complete, the airline will have about 4,970 active pilots and 7,300 active flight attendants. US Airways plans to add seats globally next year but keep family numbers flat.
