REUTERS/Chris Helgren CHICAGO (Reuters) – United Airlines (UAL.O) sweetened a voluntary exit package for flight attendants and extended the application deadline, saying that while “thousands of employees” signed up, “we’re finding that’s not enough,” according to a document seen by Reuters. Under the new deal, which came ahead of an initial June 18 deadline, flight attendants would receive a $1,500 health credit for every year worked, up to $45,000. The new deadline to apply is July 8.
