Airlines Say Slowdown Persists

Thursday, 23 November 2000 12:00 AM

According to Reuters news service:

United Airlines, the world's largest, and Northwest Airlines, No. 4 in the United States, appealed Wednesday in separate courts for enforcement of existing injunctions barring any concerted action by union members intended to disrupt operations.

On the day before Thanksgiving, one of the most heavily traveled days of the year, United reported that of its normal 2,300 daily flights, 46 had been canceled – all but three due to maintenance operations.

Northwest also had above-normal maintenance-related problems – 56 cancellations and 137 delays, with 36 aircraft out of service.

Both the International Association of Machinists, which represents United's 15,000 mechanics, and the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association, which represents 9,000 mechanics at Northwest, denied they were violating the injunctions issued Nov. 17.
