Computer bug grants too many American Airline pilots X'mas off
The pilots union summed it up best, with their spokesperson saying "the computer said 'Hey y'all. You want the days off? You got it."
FORT WORTH, TEXAS — A computer bug in American Airlines allowed way too many pilots the chance to take the fronight between December 17 and December 31 off.
As a result, the airliner is facing a shortage of pilots this festive period, putting thousands of Christmas flights in jeopardy.
American has got some pilots in reserve, but is offering pilots 1.5 times normal pay to come back for the holiday season.
Reportedly, it may impact flights from Charlotte, Salt Lake City, Dallas, Boston, Miami, New York and Philly.
