Although American Airlines' parent company is still in bankruptcy and a merger with US Airways is on hold, the Fort Worth-based airline is moving forward with plans to grow.

American Airlines announced Monday that it plans to recruit and hire 1,500 pilots over the next five years, with the job openings to be posted Oct. 1.

The new pilots are in addition to the 1,500 new flight attendants and 1,200 agents the airline has begun to recruit this year.
