U-S Airways flight attendants were threatening a strike of their own - just before Christmas.
But tonight U-S Airways customers can breathe a sigh of relief.
That's because the National Mediation Board has ordered the Association of Flight Attendants to return to the bargaining table.
That ends the possibility of a strike during the holiday season.
The Union had wanted the Board to declare an impasse in negotiations.
