However, the union says American's proposal would be in violation of the group's overtime rules.

American Airlines is assuring passengers their holiday travel plans are safe. The airline wasn't able to explain exactly what happened, but it offered pilots fifty percent more than they usually get paid to pick up the empty shifts.

According to the Allied Pilots Association, the union representing the 15,000 pilots who fly for American Airlines, a failure within the system has produced "significant holes" in the operation.

Union leaders estimated there were as many as 15,000 flights without pilots, many right around Christmas, that put a lot of plans in jeopardy.

American plans to use reserve pilots to fill numerous assignments and pay others time-and-a-half to cover the rest.

A scheduling glitch left American Airlines without pilots for holiday flights, CNBC said.

"Out of the 200,000 flights American will operate in December, only a few hundred are now unassigned to pilots", the statement said.

The flights that now have no scheduled pilots originate from cities including Boston; Charlotte, N.C.; Washington; Dallas-Fort Worth; New York; Miami; Chicago; and Philadelphia, Mr. Overman said. The scheduling glitch let pilots drop scheduled flights - to take a vacation over Christmas, for example - even when there were no other pilots available for that flight.

"The APA leadership met with American Airlines senior management today to discuss APA's grievance concerning restrictions on premium pay and trip trading for December flying".
