Southwest issues layoff warnings to 6,828 employees
(Reuters) – Southwest Airlines Co said on Thursday it had issued notices to 6,828 employees warning them that they could be furloughed, amid a slump in demand for air travel due to the coronavirus crisis.

Bloomberg News had reported here the layoff notices earlier on Thursday.
