TWA Eliminating 3,380 Jobs: The carrier said it will lay off 500 employees immediately and another 2,500 within the next month as part of the “tough decisions” it must make to be competitive. Trans World Airlines Inc. also said it plans to eliminate 300 jobs in a restructuring of its international operations and 80 domestic management positions. A spokesman for the St. Louis-based airline said the bulk of employees receiving the first layoff notices are machinists working out of the Kansas City overhaul base.
