    DALLAS (AP) — American Airlines says that because of job-sharing and other steps, it won't have to furlough 500 flight attendants this spring.
    American said two weeks ago that it planned to cut 500 flight attendants because it's flying less than it did a year ago.
    The company and the Association of Professional Flight Attendants said Wednesday that the furloughs won't be needed because so many workers signed up for job-sharing and voluntary leave.
    The union called it "tremendous news for all of our members."
