Midwest Express and Flight Attendents

Midwest Express Airlines and the Association of Flight Attendants å- which represents its 425 flight attendants å- have agreed to return to contract negotiations beginning Thursday, September 19. Negotiations broke off in late August after the parties were unable to come to an agreement by the end of a 30-day cooling-off period mandated by the National Mediation Board.

“We’re pleased to be resuming negotiations,” said David C. Reeve, senior vice president of operations at Midwest Express. “For the sake of our loyal passengers, we sincerely hope we will be able to quickly come to an agreement that is fair to both sides.”

Midwest Express Airlines features nonstop jet service to major destinations throughout the United States. Astral Aviation, Inc. - its wholly owned subsidiary - operates Skyway Airlines, The Midwest Express Connection, which offers connections to Midwest Express as well as point-to-point service between select markets on regional jet and turboprop aircraft.
