American Airlines said it will cut almost 7,000 jobs and take a second-quarter charge of up to $1.2 billion on the value of its fleet. It will also book a $70 million charge related to severance packages. Part of that charge may be taken in the third quarter. The airline on Wednesday notified junior flight attendants that they are subject to furlough on Aug. 31.
