Flight attendants at Northwest Airlines Corp. tentatively agreed on pay cuts, the union said on Thursday.
Association of Flight Attendants spokeswoman Karen Schultz said the agreement reached early Thursday met the $195 million target of yearly savings that the airline demanded.
"It had to," she said. Other terms of the new pact weren't disclosed.
The deal requires approval by rank-and-file flight attendants, who voted down tentative agreements twice last year.
