FLYi, the parent company of airline Independence Air and the Association of Flight
Attendants- Communications Workers of America have agreed to

“This is an important step for us, and we applaud our flight attendants
and their leadership for stepping up in their efforts to help at a time
when that help is needed most. Our flight attendants have been critical
to the customer success we’ve achieved so far, and they continue to do
an excellent job in their role as service leaders for our airline.”

AFA-CWA Master Executive Council President Kenneth Kindred said, “The
Independence Air flight attendants are working with management and
other unions on the property to move us a step closer to a successful
conclusion to the company’s restructuring efforts. We are proud of the
company’s history and our role in making Independence Air a national
leader in customer satisfaction.”
