FORT WORTH (AP) - The union representing American Eagle flight attendants says members are worried about their fate if the merger of American Airlines and US Airways goes through.

The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA complains that the parent of American Airlines — Fort Worth-based AMR Corp. — has outsourced some regional flying to other carriers.

Robert Barrow is president of the Eagle flight attendants’ union, which represents about 1,800 people. Barrow said Tuesday that flight attendants deserve to know their role after the merger.

Some American and US Airways Group Inc. employees on Tuesday flew to Washington to lobby for the merger.

The U.S. Department of Justice sued last month to block the deal, saying it would reduce competition.
