Southwest Airlines Soon to Fly to Hawaii

Southwest Airlines will soon be flying to Hawaii, thanks to flight attendants, who approved contract changes that will allow the airline to fly over oceans and the Gulf of Mexico.  On Friday, the Transport Workers Union reported that 52.3% of flight attendants voted in favor of the changes.  The 47.7% who rejected the contract also rejected a proposal in May.  Union officials say the deal will help flight attendants, which will open up the airline past the 48 states on the continent.

Stacy K. Martin, president of the flight attendants' union local, said the industry is changing and with many other airlines securing these types of routes, the flight attendants did not want to inhibit the airline.  The flight attendants will need to get passports, but they will be reimbursed for the cost by the airline.  The airline will also have to make changes, such as installing rafts that are required for aircraft that are flying over water more than 50 miles from the coastline.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
