American Airlines to recall more than 200 pilots

Fort Worth, Texas-AP -- American Airlines says it's recalling 208 laid-off pilots due to the gradual increase in air travel.

Traffic has picked up in the months since the September eleventh terrorist attacks.

A spokeswoman for American says the pilots will begin training sessions on May first.

In September, parent company A-M-R announced it would cut 20-thousand jobs at American, American Eagle and T-W-A, which has since been folded into American.

In December, American recalled 800 reservations clerks and canceled plans to lay off another 200 pilots.
