Flight attendants support American Airlines and US Airways merger
- The union for flight attendants of American Airlines (AAMRQ.PK) asks its members to contact state attorneys general in select states to reconsider joining a DOJ action to block the merger between American and US Airways (LCC +2.7%).
- "A merger is good for employees and it is good for U.S. consumers," says the group.
