UPDATED: American strike? Not for a very long time

UPDATE: Pasted below is a longer formal reply from American given to the Dallas Morning News, which first called out NBC's irresponsible report over the weekend.

Read this post in conjunction with my column today: In case you saw Saturday's Today Show on NBC, don't worry about American's flight attendants going on strike. The long process described in the column that takes place before airline employees legally can walk off the job is still going on. So read the full story from one of American's hometown newspapers here.

American's statement from a spokeswoman can be found here.
