US Airways flight attendants will stage protests at four airports on Thursday, expressing displeasure that they haven’t received a new contract that "reflects the sacrifices they made for the success of the airline."

Flight attendants will picket at Charlotte, Washington Reagan National, Philadelphia and Phoenix airports.

Since US Airways and America West merged in September 2005, flight attendants and airline management have been unable to hammer out a contract that covers flight attendants from both airlines.

The flight attendants said its union, the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, broke off talks last week after US Airways management "presented a proposal that contained concessions in health care and sick benefits, gutted scope and merger protections for flight attendants and contained no meaningful wage increases."
