Default Spirit FA's refuse to wear Bud aprons

I thought this was interesting article that showed up in the local paper.

Sounds like the FA's are trying to draw a line in the sand against the company's plan to increase ad revenue.

I wouldn't have too much of a problem with it if Bud was still an American brand.

Frankly, most flight attendants (and not a few pilots . . . ahem!) should be less worried about uniform changes and more concerned that they'll have to step onto a scale every 6 months to conform to "normal" weight standards.

This would do far more to enhance the product image to the flying public than some advertising everyone will just block out anyway.
