US Airways flight attendants "reviewing" airlines' settlement with DOJ

A US trade union representing US Airways Flight Attendants said it is reviewing a settlement announced this week between the United States Department of Justice and US Airways/American Airlines.

According to the union, The Association of Flight Attendants, resolution of the anti-trust lawsuit will now be submitted to bankruptcy judge Sean Lane for approval. The suit sought to block a merger between Texas-based carrier American Airlines (OTC: AAMRQ) (which is in bankruptcy) and Arizona USA-based US Airways (NYSE: LCC).

AFA said it is reviewing the terms of this agreement to ensure that the merger continues to provide a positive future for US Airways flight attendants.

It said that US Airways flight attendants continue to back the merger as long as it supports the opportunities and benefits the flight attendants have worked long and hard to achieve.

The Association of Flight Attendants is the world´s largest flight attendant union. Nearly 60,000 Flight Attendants come together to form AFA, part of the 700,000-member strong Communications Workers of America (CWA), AFL-CIO.
