On Thursday, United Airlines announced it would call back close to 600 pilots who were furloughed while fuel prices spiked and the recession forced the airline to scale back operations. The airline said training for the returning pilots commences in October and will be done by the end of 2013. The returning pilots represent the last of the 1,437 United pilots furloughed in 2008 and 2009, the Air Line Pilots Association said.
