(Reuters) - United Airlines Holdings Inc plans to cut at least 3,400 management and administrative positions in October as the coronavirus pandemic crushes air travel demand, and has told pilots to brace for changes as well, according to two memos seen by Reuters.

In a separate memo seen by Reuters, pilots were told to prepare for a “displacement” that will affect roughly 30% of roughly 12,250 pilots.

Yes, it’s true. Some stations may be impacted more than others to get to the 30% number. It is 30% of the total M&A workforce, not 30% of each station’s M&A employees. For the simulator operation, only the managers, supervisors, and administrative staff are included in this reduction.

~1300 m&a employees took the vsp. Now the hammer drops. Notices in July apparently.
