The airline has said it has too many flight attendants on the United side and not enough on the Continental side. A plan to move flight attendants from one to the other was rejected by the Association of Flight Attendants.

The company, United Continental Holdings Inc., is going around the union with its latest move. It will offer flight attendants jobs at Continental on April 1, the same day they are furloughed from United.
