It's back to work for some 200 ex-TWA flight attendants. American Airlines will recall the workers in November, according to U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill.
They were laid off back in 2001 after the 9/11 attacks hit the airline industry hard. American had cut 2,500 flight attendants in all during the slowdown, many of them were former TWA employees. The airline had bought out TWA earlier in 2001.
Travelers using Lambert Airport will see some new renovation disruptions beginning next week.
Airport officials say a major phase of its renovation plan will impact Concourse B and Concourse D checkpoint areas, meaning detours for arriving and departing passengers. Construction walls will be erected around the checkpoint throughout the final two weeks of July, as well as in the atrium above in the ticketing area.
