DALLAS — American Airlines wants to eliminate 1,200 nonunion jobs as it cuts costs while under bankruptcy protection.
That pushes its overall job-cut target to 14,200. It announced plans in February to cut 13,000 union pilots, flight attendants and ground workers.
American, the nation's third-biggest airline, has about 73,000 workers.
American outlined the cuts for many nonunion workers on Tuesday. The company wants to outsource the jobs of all airport skycaps and cargo agents, cancel a planned lump-sum payment that was due for nonunion workers next year, freeze their pension plan, cut vacation and paid holidays, and reduce medical benefits.
The airline says it will close a call center in Tucson, Ariz., and lounges at Washington's Dulles Airport and Kansas City International Airport.
