Spirit Pilots Settle
Spirit Airlines will resume operations Friday after it reached a tentative contract deal with is pilots. The pilots, represented by the Airline Pilots Association, walked out last Saturday and the budget carrier has been grounded since. The airline called the deal "fair and equitable" and said it meets pilots demands for wage and benefit increases while allowing the airline to continue growing.
Passengers with flights booked for Friday or after are urged to reconfirm the bookings. Those whose flights were cancelled will also have to get in touch with the airline about rebooking or getting refunds.
