Northwest Airlines Cutting Back
(2008-06-18)
(wgvu) - Northwest Airlines says it will cut its
capacity later this year by 3 percent to 4 percent because of high
fuel prices.
That's a larger cut than it had announced previously.
Michigan's largest passenger air carrier says it will try to
shrink its staff through voluntary means, but layoffs are possible,
too. The airline says it has not yet finalized the number of
positions it wants to eliminate.
Northwest Airlines Corp. says it expects to reduce its mainline
flying by as much as 9.5 percent compared with its flying a year
ago.
Most airlines have been announcing capacity reductions because
of sharp rises in fuel prices.
