United Airlines flight attendants protest worldwide against staff and service cuts

5 years ago
United Airlines flight attendants demonstrated outside airports worldwide Thursday in response to looming cuts.

The protests are a response to the company's plan to reduce staffing by one flight attendant per flight in its international business cabins, with flight attendants arguing that fewer crew members on board will put both safety and customer service at risk.
