Flight attendants union, American Airlines reach tentative deal

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A flight attendants’ union says it has a tentative contract covering crews at American Airlines and US Airways.

The union said Friday that negotiators reached an agreement with American Airlines Group Inc. with industry-leading terms. Those terms were not disclosed.

The company is calling it another step toward combining the two airlines into one, which will keep the American name.

The Association of Professional Flight Attendants says leaders will meet next week and decide whether to send the agreement to members for a ratification vote.

Shares of American Airlines fell $1.42, or 3.7 percent, to close at $36.63. They are still up 45 percent in 2014.
