Flight attendants give thumbs-up to new leadership at United Airlines

United Airlines Flight Attendants, represented by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), said that they welcomed new executive leadership at United Airlines with the appointment of Oscar Munoz as Chief Executive Officer.

United Airlines, Continental Airlines and Continental Micronesia merged five years ago on paper, but the airline is still maintaining separate flight attendant operations and has yet to conclude a flight attendant merged agreement. AFA recently filed for federal mediation in order to bring the negotiations to a conclusion.

The Association of Flight Attendants is the world´s largest Flight Attendant union. Focused 100 percent on Flight Attendant issues, AFA has been the leader in advancing the Flight Attendant profession for 70 years.
