American Adding Hundreds of Pilots
American Airlines' parent company may be in bankruptcy, and a merger with U.S. Airways is on hold, but that isn't stopping their plans to grow.
American today announced plans to recruit and hire 1,500 pilots over the next five years. Some of the job openings will be posted as soon as Tuesday.
American says the pilots are needed to staff more planes and replace retiring pilots.
