American Airlines said Tuesday it will cut 921 flight attendant jobs starting Oct. 1 due to falling demand and reduced capacity. About half the reductions will come from voluntary leaves, while the remaining half will be furloughs or involuntary leaves. Separately, Southwest Airlines announced it will temporarily halt service on three nonstop routes this winter, as well as other schedule changes that will result in a net loss of 10 daily flights systemwide. "We have to be smart about where we put our planes and our people," a Southwest spokesman noted.
