FORT WORTH (KRLD) - Fort Worth-based American Airlines is planning layoffs of upper-management over the coming months as it winds down work on its nearly five-year merger with US Airways.

In a letter sent to employees, officials say the carrier will be offering buyouts and cutting some positions at or above the director level.

American did not specify how many jobs would be cut as a result of the restructuring.

They have roughly 19,000 non-unionized administrative employees who could be targeted.
