US Airways Reaches Tentative Deal with Flight Attendants
January 2, 2012
US Airways Group Inc. has reached a tentative contract agreement with its 6,700 flight attendants, removing one hurdle in a potential merger with bankrupt American Airlines. In 2005, US Airways was acquired out of bankruptcy by America West Airline. Until now, management had been unable to reach contracts with the former “east” and “west” flight attendants and pilots, because of wage and seniority disparities.
