A little good news is better than none…

DOW JONES NEWSWIRES

AMR Corp.'s (AMR) American Airlines said Wednesday it has sent recall notices to 460 furloughed flight attendants to address staffing needs and projected attrition through the end of the year.

The recall is comprised of former TWA flight attendants, and is in addition to the about 200 American and former TWA furloughed flight attendants contacted earlier this year, the Fort Worth, Texas-based carrier said.

I want to fly like an eagle, to the sea…

Man, I hate it when a company manufactures defective products! If only they could just do it right the first time…

But seriously, this is good news for the industry as a whole. Glad to hear it.

Two good one-liners to start a thread. Outstanding job.

My knowledge of how a furlough works is limited. Could one of these FA’s have picked up a job elsewhere during this time, or are they still under some sort of contract with the original employer?
