Report: American Airlines glitch causes pilot shortage on thousands of flights over holidays

"Because management unilaterally created their solution in violation of the contract, neither [the union] nor the contract can guarantee the promised payment of the premium being offered", said the Allied Pilots Association (APA) in a statement.

The airline said its working to address the issue and to avoid cancellation during the holiday season.

The system is supposed to allow pilots to bid based on seniority for vacation time, according to a report from CBS in Dallas.

Google Fixes Cheeseburger Emoji for Android 8.1
As per the report, a new and improved cheeseburger emoji will have the cheese placed atop the patty, as opposed to underneath it. Apparently, Google made good on its promise to fix its very bad hamburger emoji , in the wake of an online debacle last month .

The airline is now offering 150 percent of hourly wages for pilots willing to work those dates, an airline spokesperson told CNBC. but that's not exactly an eye-popping compensation increase in the face of what is a pretty darn messy snafu. Revenue will take a hit if American has to scrub many flights. "There's going to be a lot of midnight oil spent on it, but I think they'll get the vast majority of them covered one way or another".

Jalopnik reached out to both the union and American Airlines to confirm these numbers, and will update if we hear back from the union.

However, the union has filed a grievance against the airline, stating this violates pilot contracts.

"This is certainly not routine". We will work with the APA to take care of our pilots and ensure we get our customers to where they need to go over the holidays. American, the world's largest airline, operates about 6,700 flights a day.

The Allied Pilots Association, which represents some 15,000 American Airlines pilots, said the airline notified the union about a problem with the pilots' schedule bidding system last Friday.
