Comair says pilots accept contract deal
Friday June 22, 6:12 PM EDT

NEW YORK, June 22 (Reuters) - Striking pilots at Delta Air Lines' (DAL) Comair unit voted to ratify a tentative contract ending a 13-week strike that threatened to scuttle the nation's third-largest regional airline, Comair officials said on Friday.

After four days of voting, pilots accepted the deal that will make them the highest paid pilots in the regional airline industry, a spokeswoman for the airline told Reuters.

Cincinnati-based Comair and the Air Line Pilots Association union reached a tentative agreement brokered by federal mediators last week. About 1,350 Comair pilots walked out on March 26 after demanding salaries and benefits more in line with larger air carriers.

Comair has lost more than $200 million during the walkout which grounded its fleet.

The Delta network bled more than $1.5 million to $2 million in net income per day during the strike and Delta warned it might be forced to redeploy or unload its Comair assets if the strike dragged on much further.
