>> yeah, that's right, steve and allison. just looking at this board here you can see american airlines is easily the biggest airline here at reagan national airport. in fact, it's the biggest airline in the country so it's going to affect a lot of people. if they don't get pilots into those planes during those critical weeks. right now crew assignments and passenger plans are up in the air even though american says it does expect to avoid mass cancellations. december 17 to 31 those are the weeks in question, they're critical holiday travel times but a glitch in american's online pilot scheduling system showed that crews were already assigned to flights for those days when they actually weren't. and that allowed too many pilots to take time off. so we now have some 15,000 flights without a full crew grounded until those seats are filled. american airlines has a plan to use reserve pilots. it's offering 150 percent of pay to pilots who are willing to pick up open trips but the union, the allied pilots association has filed a grievance over the plan saying it was done without union input. the airline and the
