In its weekly missive to union members, the Association of Professional Flight Attendants said that all but six furloughed flight attendants accepted recall notices from American Airlines.
"A total of 221 of the 227 flight attendants offered recall have accepted - only six declined," the APFA hotline message said. "We look forward to seeing you on the line in December!"
American had announced earlier this month that it would be recalling 545 flight attendants and 250 pilots as it added new routes as part of its joint business venture with British Airways and Iberia. APFA said the next recall group should receive letters by the end of November or early December.
And in its ongoing campaign to get federal mediators to release APFA from its contract negotiations with American, the hotline reminded members to write letters to the National Mediation Board and "make sure your voice and story is heard."
