As many as 50,000 airline workers could be furloughed starting Thursday morning after Congress failed to pass a last-minute deal to extend coronavirus relief aid to the embattled industry. American Airlines CEO Doug Parker confirmed late Wednesday that his airline would go ahead with 19,000 layoffs — or 14 percent of its pre-pandemic workforce — but said it would "reverse" them if an agreement were reached. "Tomorrow, we will begin the difficult process of furloughing 19,000 of our hardworking and dedicated colleagues," Parker wrote in a memo to staff members. "I am extremely sorry we have reached this outcome. It is not what you all deserve."
