NORTHWEST AIRLINES

Northwest Airlines Corp. (NWA) and its pilots made a deal that would ease pilots’ workloads in an effort to stop the end-of-the-month cancellations that have plagued the airline. Northwest canceled hundreds of flights at the ends of June and July because it couldn’t find enough pilots. The airline had said more pilots than usual weren’t showing up for work; pilots said they were overworked.
