DALLAS » Southwest Airlines is one step closer to flying to Hawaii.
Flight attendants have approved contract changes that will allow the carrier to operate flights to the islands and near-international destinations.
The Transport Workers Union said Friday that 52.3 percent of flight attendants who voted favored the agreement while 47.7 percent opposed it.
Union officials say the deal should help Dallas-based Southwest grow and help flight attendants.
