United Airlines to Trim Management Ranks
The Chicago-based airline does not, however, plan to cut any customer-facing positions, such as flight attendants, pilots, gate agents, and customer service personnel.
The cuts will only affect a “small number” of management employees according to a statement from airline spokesman Megan McCarthy.
Earlier on Wednesday, United said it plans to accelerate the retirement of its Boeing 747 fleet, originally slated for 2018, to the end of 2017.
