United Airlines warns it could furlough more pilots

United Airlines has told its pilots it may need more furloughs than originally planned this year and next due to a worsening industry outlook as COVID-19 cases rise, unless there is another bailout or unions agree to reduce costs until demand returns.
The internal memo sent to pilots today, comes as unions lobby U.S. lawmakers to extend a $32 billion aviation stimulus plan that protected aviation workers' pay and jobs through September.
The Chicago-based airline had previously said it would furlough 2,250 pilots between October 1 and the end of 2020 and another 1,650 in 2021, depending on demand.
