Delta-KLM to close Montreal call centre

There is some bad economic news related to Montreal's airline industry.
Delta airlines and Air France-KLM are both closing their call centres in the city by next August.
280 jobs will be lost as a result.
Delta and Air France-KLM announced a merger last May and they're re-examining their joint operations to make cost savings.
The call centres will be moved to the United States and some staff will be trained to respond to calls from French-speaking customers.
