American Airlines flight attendants are calling on Pam Bondi, attorney general Florida and attorney generals from five other states to withdraw from the lawsuit to block the merger of American Airlines and US Airways. “Florida, particularly South Florida, is home to about 2,500 American flight attendants that are in need of good wages and long term job security, but Attorney General Bondi is standing in the way of that,” said APFA President Laura Glading. “Pam Bondi’s participation in the Justice Department’s antitrust lawsuit demonstrates a lack of understanding of what the merger means for her constituents. Everyone–business travelers, tourists, and airline employees–stand to benefit from the new American. We were able to explain that to General Abbott in Texas and we’d like to do the same in Florida.”
