Flight instructors from Southwest Airlines and AirTran Airways have voted to ratify their seniority integration agreement.

AirTran was acquired by Southwest last year and its 17 flight instructors, who are not unionised, are now integrated into the seniority list of the Transport Workers Union 557, which represents Southwest's 70 flight instructors.

A tentative agreement on the seniority integration was reached late last year.

"The AirTran Instructors will continue to work for AirTran until January 2015, but may be moved over to Southwest based on operational needs," said Southwest.
