(AP) United Airlines is recalling almost 600 pilots who had been on furlough.

The airline said on Thursday that it needs the pilots to meet its future staffing needs.

United has about 12,000 pilots.

United and Continental merged in 2010. The pilots being recalled are from the United side of the business.

The recall news comes just as United is almost ready to merge the two groups of pilots, now that they have a joint union contract and a combined seniority list, which was announced Wednesday.
