American said it will relocate 233 American Eagle pilot jobs from Boston to New York as part of the carrier's nationwide cost-cutting efforts in this year of record-high oil prices. The positions will disappear from Boston between Nov. 2 and Jan. 31 because Boston will no longer be a base for the Eagle pilots. However that does not necessarily mean the affected pilots will need to move to the New York area or commute there to start their work day, said spokesman Ned Raynolds. Eagle pilots will still fly 37-passenger regional jets between Boston and New York, Raleigh, and Toronto, and American will still have 382 mainline pilots based in Boston to fly the larger planes. The carrier is shrinking its 88,000-employee workforce by 8 percent and cutting 11 percent of its mainline and regional flights throughout the network this quarter, compared to the same quarter last year.
