American Airlines plans to eliminate another 1,200 jobs as part of its plan to cut costs in bankruptcy, the company said in a letter to employees.

Affected jobs include non-union passenger and cargo agents, sky caps, and baggage service workers at smaller airports, including Memphis, Reno, Sacramento and Portland, Oregon.

American previously announced plans to eliminate 13,000 union jobs, or roughly 15 percent of its workforce, as part of an overall drive to save roughly USD$1.25 billion in annual staff costs. The latest cuts would come on top of that, the company said.
