Comair Latest Airline To Hand Employees Walking Papers

Follows Delta's Announcement Of 13 Percent Cut In Capacity

Another day, another airline announcing layoffs. On Tuesday, Delta Air Lines regional subsidiary Comair announced plans to cut its flight schedule back drastically in September, with commensurate cuts to its pilot and flight attendant workforces.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Comair will cut 300 pilots and 220 FAs from its bases at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, and Comair's home base at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in Erlanger, KY.

The cuts follow Delta's announcement last month of as much as a 13 percent cut to capacity by the end of 2008. Comair had already announced plans to cut its route network by about 15 percent by the end of the year, and trim 14 CRJs from its 128-plane fleet.

Comair employs 6,300 workers, including 1,477 pilots and 940 flight attendants. Airline spokesman Jeff Pugh said Comair has already trimmed its administrative staff by six percent this year.
