Unhappy Flight Attendants

By  | 

Some flight attendants for United Airlines aren't pleased with the launch of the company's new low-cost carrier, Ted.

The flight attendants accuse the airline of reducing retirement benefits, and organized protests to coincide with the launch o Ted.

Some wore shirts bearing the word ``cheaTED.''

The union says United is reneging on an agreement to give more benefits to flight attendants who retired before July First.

That move came in the filing of a plan in bankruptcy court.

United has operated under federal bankruptcy court protection for more than a year.
