Hit by a coronavirus pandemic, United Airlines sent a warning letter to nearly half of the frontline workers that they could be violated when federal bailout restrictions ended October 1.

The reduction was in addition to the company office-based employee leave previously said it would cut.

“The reality is that United cannot continue at our current payroll level past October 1 in an environment where travel demand is very depressed,” the company said in a message to employees.

Wednesday’s announcement painted a grim picture for the recovery of air travel just days after United announced it would improve the schedule in August.

The airline only operates a quarter of the flight compared to last year and said that on average the plane, 55% was full. United executives said demand for air travel has recently declined in markets such as New York, where bookings at the Newark hub dropped when the Covid case surged.

United executives told reporters that the company had done everything to protect employees – urging them to take early retirement and voluntary separation plans and aggressively collect millions of new money – but the airline was still bleeding $ 40 million every day.

The airline, which reached an agreement this week with the Ministry of Finance to channel loan funds, also did not rely on another round of aid to pass Congress.

The city, located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, has not hosted the President of the Portuguese Republic since 1989.

“We have never lost the honor and responsibility of being representatives of this beautiful flag,” said Jimmy Enes, a member of Artesia DES, a Portuguese descendant, in a welcoming speech delivered in perfect Portuguese. “When we are asked who we are, we always answer”i am portuguese“and not”Portuguese-American“or ‘Portuguese American’,” he said. “That’s why we’re trying step by step to protect our heritage on the outskirts of Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world.”
