Flight attendants welcome news that AMR is exploring merger options 

The flight attendants union said it welcomed the news that AMR Corp. will be considering merger options.

The Association of Professional Flight Attendants said exploring merger partners is an important step towards achieving a merger, particularly with US Airways, which the union has supported.

"This is something we have been pushing for," said Association of Professional Flight Attendants president Laura Glading. "There is still a great deal of work to do, but between Mr. Horton’s announcement today and our negotiating efforts, I am hopeful that the US Airways team will soon have all the information it needs to explore the possibility of a merger."

With the mechanics and store clerks unions reaching tentative agreements on Tuesday, the flight attendants are now the only union group at American without an agreement for its members to vote on.
