Big Just got Smaller fro UAL and AA?

October looks like the month most BIG US carriers are becoming SMALLER — UAL plans to drop more than 20,000 employees (including 1,000 management jobs);  and American says it will have 40,000 fewer workers this fall;  SOUTHWEST says it “expects” to avoid any furloughs or layoffs — but earlier this year, nearly 17,000 employees took extended “voluntary” time off or early retirement.  Look for ticket prices — for the time — to be reasonable and frequent flyer mile bargains galore !!!
