Flight attendants support American Airlines and US Airways merger

|About: American Airlines Group (AAL)|By:, SA News Editor

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.

After several states joined the suit, the hurdles for the carriers to reach a quick settlement became higher.
