St. Louis, MO – American Airlines' flight attendants Wednesday approved changes to their contract, but many St. Louis-based flight attendants voted no.
That's because all 1,800 will lose their jobs regardless of whether American avoids bankruptcy; they say they had nothing to lose.
The flight attendants are all former T-W-A employees; they say they might have had a better chance in bankruptcy court, adding there own union won nothing for them in exchange for the concessions, which total $340 million.
