CHICAGO (Reuters) – American Airlines is moving ahead with 19,000 employee furloughs on Thursday, Chief Executive Doug Parker said in a memo to employees on Wednesday.

U.S. airlines have asked the U.S. Congress to extend a $25 billion payroll support program that protected jobs until Oct. 1 for another six months but so far no agreement has been reached.
