United Recalls 600 Pilots, Ending Furloughs at Largest Airline

Sept. 5 (Bloomberg) -- United Continental Holdings Inc., the world’s largest carrier, said it’s recalling all of its almost 600 pilots who have been on furlough to fill future staffing needs.

Training classes for those pilots begin next month and will run through the end of the year, Chicago-based United said today in a statement.

The recalled pilots will join their 12,000 peers at United, which merged with Continental Airlines Inc. in 2010, surpassing Delta Air Lines Inc. as the world’s biggest carrier.

United didn’t specify which types of airplanes the recalled pilots will fly, nor the average length of the furloughs.
