Where'd That Bush Boom Go

It isn't over here.

American Airlines expects to cut nearly 7,000 employees by the end of the year, or about 8 percent of its worldwide work force, as it reduces flights and grounds aircraft because of high fuel prices, the airline told employees Wednesday.

The job cuts, which appear to be twice as big as those announced so far by any other carrier, could include as many as 900 flight attendants.
