United Airlines on Thursday warned it may need to furlough more pilots than previously expected as a significant rebound in travel demand remains distant. The terms of a federal bailout that provided $25 billion to passenger airlines and $7 billion to cargo airlines and contractors prohibits them from cutting jobs or pay rates until Oct. 1. But carriers are now warning their workers about potential cuts this fall, urging them to take voluntary time off or buyout agreements to slash costs.
