Federal Judge Blocks Spirit-JetBlue Merger

Judge Blocks Spirit-JetBlue Merger

January 16, 2024 — Today, a federal judge blocked JetBlue Airways' purchase of Spirit Airlines after the Justice Department sued to stop the merger.

While some may be relieved, others may be disappointed. It is not immediately clear whether the airlines will appeal this decision. The decision has had a strong reaction on Wall Street.

Here's what we know for sure: We locked in improvements in our contract, regardless of the outcome of the merger. Our contract remains in full force.

We will update you with more information as it becomes available. Your AFA-CWA Local Leaders are always ready to receive your calls or questions. We don't have many answers now, but we will update all members as we receive more information.

To contact your local leaders, visit our Spirit AFA Website and look for your respective council.

Today, we fly on. Stand strong together and, as always, look out for each other.
