Is the Association of Flight Attendant's union (AFA) days numbered??
I ask this because they stand to lose lots of membership due to all the consolidation going on in the US. At Delta ,The NW f/a's are represented by AFA but that might change if they vote them out and decide to go non union. At The new UA the premerger UA f/a are represented by AFA but the CO f/a are represented by The IAM (International Association of Machnist) and have a far better superior contract than those at UA. Now with the take over of Airtran by Southwest AFA stands to lose the Airtran F/A's because SW is represented by teamsters and we know who will prob win there .That just leaves one major Carrier with AFA representation ...USAirways. There are other smaller airlines represented by them IE: Alaska,Frontier,and Hawaiian but I mean major carriers . Any thoughts ??

AFA's days are no more numbered than ALPA, which is in a similar position with internal union drives going on with some airlines.
