American Airlines agrees to give $81 million in higher pay raises to flight attendants

The Association of Professional Flight Attendants said Thursday that American Airlines management had agreed to give its flight attendants an additional $81 million a year that members had rejected in a tentative agreement.

The new, higher pay increases will go into effect Jan. 1.

“With this action behind us, we can look forward to the year ahead and beyond as one team,” American said in a statement, “and with great momentum as we continue our integration plans.”

“Today’s announcement is the beginning of a new chapter,” the union said in a hotline message to members. “Bringing together two large workgroups with very different cultures and contracts is an enormous task but together we have done exactly that in just over one year. We now turn our attention to implementing our joint collective bargaining agreement and enforcing the hard-fought provisions it contains.”
