American Airlines Recalls More Flight Attendants
American Airlines today announced it is sending recall notices to 247 furloughed flight attendants to address anticipated staffing needs and projected attrition for 2008. This recall is comprised of former TWA flight attendants.
"American is thrilled to have recalled more than 900 flight attendants this year, and we are very happy to welcome this latest group back to service in 2008," said Lauri Curtis, American's Vice President - Onboard Service.
