As taken from the story..."Comair, a commuter airline, is based at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport."
The media needs to get their sh!t right. The last time I checked, Comair was considered a major airline by the DOT. This is truly sad for Comair, always considered to be an industry leader. Those flight attendants only make between 16 and 40K if Im not mistaken. If the company gets their way, I would expect a lot of attrition.
