Re: Alaska, Virgin America flight attendants agree to merger deal

Seniority integration will be strictly date of hire for flight attendants. AS hire dates will be adjusted to have the same criteria (currently VX is day 1 of training, AS is day after graduation) Also, I'd recommend changing the title. The negotiations have resulted in a TA, but the flight attendan...

Re: Alaska, Virgin America flight attendants agree to merger deal

Because both groups were AFA, the bylaws of the union spell out the process. Even if one group doesn't agree, the bylaws are the guide.[/quote]

Do we know in this case what those bylaws read?

Re: 3-Year Old Boy screams for 8-hours on flight.

Parents aren’t allowed to hit their kids anymore, so you have to take a lot of preventive measures, as they outline in the article. Still a terrible nuisance.
