WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 7, 2022) — The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA) representing over 4,600 Flight Attendants at Spirit Airlines and 2,900 Flight Attendants at Frontier Airlines, released the following statement on the proposed merger:

"AFA-CWA represents Flight Attendants at both Spirit and Frontier. We were notified of the merger moments before the announcement hit Wall Street and the media. Our first priority is to determine whether this merger will improve conditions for Flight Attendants just like the benefits the companies have described for shareholders and consumers. Our support of the merger will depend on this.

"As a practical matter, our union Constitution and Bylaws provides a detailed process for this review with the AFA leadership from each airline."
