SHOW TRANSCRIPT

United Airlines is planning to furlough more than 16,000 workers as early as October after federal aid runs out.

That's some 20% of its frontline employees.

Almost half of the furloughs are expected to be flight attendants, according to the union representing them.

Last month, American Airlines also announced it'd cut 19,000 jobs.
