Phoenix, Arizona-based Mesa operates regional flights for American Airlines and United Airlines, as American Eagle and United Express, respectively. Mesa employs over 700 flight attendants.
AFA said Mesa’s flight attendants have “engaged in years of stalled contract negotiations and are underpaid compared to other flight attendants flying for United and American airlines.”
AFA Mesa president Heather Stevenson said, “Mesa Airlines is an important partner in the highly profitable American Airlines and United Airlines networks.”
A spokesperson for Mesa Airlines could not be immediately reached for comment.
