Employment is up at North Texas-based American Airlines and Southwest Airlines as both carriers outpaced their competitors in job growth, according to figures released 08/20/15. Fort Worth-based American employed 59,905 full-time workers and 7,427 part-timers in the United States in June, for a total of 67,332, up 6.4% from a year ago. Southwest employment rose 4.9% to 46,808 full-timers and 1,674 part-timers, totaling 48,482 nationwide. The job numbers for American Airlines would have made it the largest employer if the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics would have included the 35,339 that the agency still considers employees of US Airways. That airline and American have merged, creating a mega-airline with more passengers than any other in the world, but they have still been reporting job numbers separately.
