Spirit Airlines issued layoff-furlough visits to 238 passengers and flight attendants located at DFW International Airport, the most up-to-date in cutbacks as airlines hurry to trim payrolls in front of a key Oct. 1 date.Spirit sent notices to 79 pilots, first officers, and 159 flight attendants, according to a letter filed with the Texas Workforce Commission and made public Friday.Airlines that required national stimulus money aren’t permitted to furlough or layoff workers until Oct. 1, or even reduce salaries and benefits.Miramar, Fla.-based Spirit obtained roughly $330 million in federal grants, but is facing a challenging decision in October when that money runs out. By October, nobody anticipates airline visitors to return to the levels necessary to support the industry’s 750,000 employees.Spirit, which specializes in a la carte service on flights catering to leisure passengers, isn’t likely to abandon support to DFW, stated spokesman Erik Hofmeyer.“This decision was difficult, and it was one we hoped we would never have to make,” Hofmeyer said in a statement. “We continue to look for ways to reduce the number of furloughs as October approaches, and we thank the team members who have already helped by taking voluntary leave.”The cutback notices weren’t surprising for Spirit, which has warned it also may have to reduce for collapse. Federal law requires companies to donate 60 days finds until it makes big layoffs.But such as other airlines, Spirit is expecting to decrease the demand for involuntary layoffs through workers willingly taking off time or premature retirements or via another round of national citizenship licenses which may last until March.“But right now, I think we’re still reading the game film to be honest, because the summer has been up and down both sides, and we want to make sure that we digest all the information before we make a call,” stated Spirit CEO Ted Christie at a call with shareholders on July 22.Spirit functions 17 cities nonstop in DFW, such as holiday spots like Cancun but also huge cities such as New York, Boston, Chicago and Los Angeles.“There will be reductions in the number of flights we’ll offer at DFW this fall, however, it will still be higher than what we offered earlier in the year in April, May and June when demand for air travel was at its lowest,” Hofmeyer said.Spirit has insisted it’ll be better placed than most other airlines due to its leisure travel accent. Analysts and airways are anticipating a lesser recovery for company passengers.Fort Worth-based American Airlines has shipped out roughly 28,000 furlough notices to workers throughout the nation. Chicago-based United has shipped out 36,000, such as 4,700 at Texas and 71 in DFW International Airport.Dallas’ Southwest Airlines said that it won’t have to furlough any workers in the autumn, but was only made possible if 28% of its workers signed up for premature retirement or long leave.
