US Airways has announced the recall of more than 200 flight attendants effective Feb. 15,
2008.The recalls are being initiated to ramp up for the busy summer
schedule and to compensate for retirement and attrition. Notices are being
issued to eligible employees beginning today on a seniority basis among
furloughed US Airways flight attendants. Since merging with America West in
2005, US Airways has recalled 330 flight attendants.
“We are thrilled to welcome these employees back to a new, more
financially stable airline with a bright future ahead of it,” said US
Airways President Scott Kirby. “They rejoin a strong team of approximately
7,000 US Airways flight attendants who do an absolutely fantastic job
taking care of our customers.”
These newly recalled flight attendants will be assigned across five
crewmember bases: Boston, Charlotte, N.C., Washington D.C. - Reagan., New
York City - LaGuardia and Philadelphia.
