United Airlines says it exceeded its on-time goals for the third consecutive month in November, reporting that 85 percent of its domestic flights and 82.5 percent of its international flights arrived with 14 minutes of the scheduled time.
United spokeswoman Jennifer Dohm did not share the carrier’s exact on-time goals with me.
Attention Flyertalkers. You know who you are. I have news for you. United Airlines is reading your posts. Just about every one of them.
More than 4,000 United Airlines flight attendants based in California are sharing about $1 million, minus legal fees, as part of a settlement in which employees alleged relatively minor violations of the state’s Labor Code.
California has strict laws about when and how employees should be paid, and they can trip companies up, even if all employees received their full wages. The law, for example, requires that employees receive a specific and detailed accounting of pay and deductions.
United flight attendants working in California between Oct. 4, 2010 and Feb. 19, 2013 are eligible to recover money. For more on the settlement, which I learned of from the Association of Flight Attendants website, read this article from Law360.com.
Here’s a statement from United spokeswoman Jennifer Dohm:
It was alleged that we were partially out of compliance with California state law regarding certain printed information on pay stubs, and have since complied with the standards. This lawsuit specifically addressed information on pay stubs and not compensation; employees were compensated accurately.
File this one under, ‘Not good.’
United Airlines is slimming down when it comes to airplane seats.
