Default Furlough Estimates

From recent OBAP career fair looks like American will be 2-3000 heavy in January? Is this accurate to furlough figures for fall?

I donít know exactly which numbers you speak of but AA has said a number of times they are basing their numbers off summer Ď21 when it is closer to 1,800. Now subtract planner retirements and a few other factors and we are closer to 1000-1200 not counting any additional VPLOA/VSTLOAs. 1000-1200 is the running assumption from a lot of much smarter people than me.

EDIT: to clarify, thatís the estimated overage, AA and APA have said several times avoiding furlough is the goal and have not stated any indications towards a furlough on October 1.

I was thinking the same thing. Website says the 2020 event was cancelled.

That is so off that it makes me question anything OBAP ever puts out in the future.

Somebody just posted a great take on AA furloughs, and why we likely WON'T furlough, on the Below The Line Facebook page. If you're the facespace, I highly suggest you go read it.
