Our story

The Spirit Airlines Master Executive Council (MEC) of the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA-CWA) represents nearly 4,000 Flight Attendants at Spirit Airlines. The activities of the union are driven by working Flight Attendants who serve as activists and leaders within Local Councils in Atlantic City, DetroitDallas, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, and Chicago

From humble beginnings in 1992 a small charter airline with 352 flight attendants called Charter One became Spirit Airlines. Shortly thereafter in 2000, those 352 Flight Attendants voted to become a part of a the Association of Flight Attendants, signing their first collective bargaining agreement in 2003.

With such growth comes many changes. From closing bases including: San Juan, Melbourne, Myrtle Beach, Cleveland, New York, Newark, and West Palm Beach, Spirit has remained a leader in the Ultra-Low Cost Airline category. 

In 2007 the first Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) signed between Spirit Airlines and Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) became amendable. However, those negotiations were suspended in June of 2008 as our most senior base, Detroit (DTW) Local 76 was downsized and flight attendants were offered an “Early Out” option. 

A very uncertain time turned into a very profitable opportunity allowing Spirit Airlines to go public on the NASDAQ in 2011 and open Las Vegas (LAS) and Dallas (DFW) crew bases in 2012 and Chicago (ORD) in 2013. Spirit is now trading on the New York Stock Exchange (SAVE).

For over 26 years, Spirit’s AFA has worked to improve the working conditions, benefits, and pay of Spirit Airlines Flight Attendants through collective bargaining and relentless advocacy.
