United Airlines to cut 600 jobs
Thursday - 1/24/2013, 12:58pm EST
CHICAGO (AP) - United Airlines is cutting about 600 jobs as it aims to keep costs in line with reductions in flying.
The airline says the job cuts will include buyouts and layoffs. Some open positions won't be filled.
The cuts are spread around the company's locations, although many are expected to happen in Chicago. That's where United is based and where it has one of its biggest hubs at O'Hare International Airport. The positions being cut are in management and administration.
The layoffs come as United reports a loss of $723 million for last year. It's reducing flying this year, which is one reason for the layoffs.
Spokeswoman Megan McCarthy says United cut 4 senior officers last month, out of about 50 at the company. The company employs about 84,000 people worldwide.
