American Airlines to ramp up pilot hiring - staff memo

CHICAGO, July 21 (Reuters) - America Airlines is increasing the number of pilots it plans to hire this year and next as travel demand recovers, according to a staff memo reviewed by Reuters.

American now expects to hire 350 pilots this year, up from 300, and more than 1,000 additional pilots next year, up from about 600 previously planned, its vice president of flight operations Chip Long said in the memo. (Reporting by Tracy Rucinski)
