Flight attendants at American Airlines say talks with the company have broken down adn now they may be set to go on strike.
Union leaders say they plan to ask to be released from mediation which would set a 30 day cooling off period. Meanwhile, they plan to set a strike vote among their members as early as this weekend. The union wants pay increases to make up for cuts that employees accepted in 2002 to help keep the airline out of bankruptcy.
