HONOLULU (AP) The union representing Allegiant Air flight attendants says the airline is eliminating nearly half its Hawaii-based jobs.

Transport Workers Union Local 577 says Hawaii-based flight attendants were notified Monday that 37 full-time positions will be reduced to 20 positions.

TWU International Vice President Thom McDaniel says Hawaii flight attendants are being told they can compete for open jobs in other cities. A statement from the Las Vegas-based airline says Honolulu staffing needs have changed because of schedule changes.

McDaniel says the union has been asking what will happen to Hawaii flight attendants after the airline announced in April it would cancel flights from seven U.S. mainland cities to Honolulu.

He says now flight attendants will have to uproot their lives in order to continue working for the airline.
