Pilots dispute over contracts, ask judge to settle

The airline US Airways has asked a federal court to solve a dispute between pilots in the airline.

The carrier is based in Arizona and filed the legal action in a U.S. District Court to solve a contract issue between 4,000 pilots after the merger of America West and US Airways nearly five years ago.

The union of the airline’s pilots did not agree with the move, but the pilots association said that the court should have no jurisdiction on the contract dispute. The dispute involves seniority of the pilots which is important because it changes their schedules and pay.
