More than 30 flight crew members marched outside the United Airlines ticket gates at Dulles Airport Thursday afternoon reminding passengers that the company’s flight attendants still don’t have a contract after more than five years. The protest was part of the Association of Flight Attendants/CWA “Third Thursday” efforts at major airports served by United. Passengers showed solidarity by wearing red “I Support United Flight Attendants” stickers. “Some passengers had no idea what was happening,” reports NoVA Labor President Dan Duncan. “However, they wanted to have a sticker once Flight Attendants explained the situation.” AFA Council 21 President Todd Failla said talks are continuing between the union and the airline, “but we have waited long enough.”
