    Making the rounds on the usual sites. No surprises really, how long could they keep this open without non-hub flights?

    "American hasn’t set a date for closing the base, and is seeking an agreement to shorten a six-month notice requirement in the current pilot contract, said Missy Cousino, a spokeswoman for the Fort Worth, Texas-based company. About 270 of American’s 8,700 pilots are based in San Francisco.

    The closure is among “aggressive steps” the airline is taking to improve its financial performance, Cousino said. It “will save us a significant amount of money and will help streamline our pilot operation,” she said."
