Aeromexico Attendants Accept Pact, End Strike

From Times Wire Reports

Flight attendants for Mexico's largest airline accepted a new contract, ending a two-day strike that stranded thousands of passengers.

The new contract will raise wages 9.5%. Aeromexico had initially offered a 6.5% increase, while the union had sought 30%.

Some people were forced to spend the night in Mexico City's airport after trying unsuccessfully to find seats on other airlines. However, the crowds of stranded passengers began to thin as Aeromexico moved them to other flights and the flight attendants prepared to return to work today.
