Spirit Airlines makes a deal to end pilots' strike

MIRAMAR, Fla. (AP) - The union for striking pilots at Spirit Airlines says it has reached a tentative agreement with the airline.

Andy Nelson, the vice chairman of the pilots' union, says it's still working out the details of when pilots will return to flying.

But Nelson says they are aiming to do it as soon as possible.

Spirit says it will fly again starting Friday.

The airline already canceled its flights through Thursday before the agreement was reached.
