"I really have to believe that they're sincere and that we can achieve a deal," says Laura Glading, president of the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, which started negotiations in summer 2008. Meanwhile, American Airlines said in a statement that the company "is committed to the negotiations process and will continue to work with the APFA to reach an agreement on a new contract that recognizes flight attendants' service and dedication while positioning the company for long-term success."
