Pilots say they will staff all scheduled American Airlines flights for Christmas

Faced with the prospect of sweeping flight cancellations during the busy holiday season, American Airlines said Friday that it had resolved a scheduling problem that had left thousands of flights without assigned pilots. In addition, we have more reserve pilots on hand in December than normal months and they provide us with the ability to fly numerous trips that are now uncovered.

More than 10,000 flights were in danger of cancellation this week after a scheduling error allowed too many pilots to take time off during the high-volume travel days of late December. Shares of American Airlines Group Inc. trade on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol AAL.

American Airlines released a statement, Friday, that said in part, "If Santa if flying this holiday season, so is American".

The union, which represents some 15,000 pilots at the largest USA carrier, had filed a grievance, saying the solution American had put in place violated pilots' contracts because of how it restricted overtime pay.
