(Corrects source of vote tally in first paragraph.)

Aug. 19 (Bloomberg) -- American Airlines flight attendants voted to approve cost reductions sought by the bankrupt carrier, their union said in an e-mail.

The vote was 7,482 to 5,088, the Association of Professional Flight Attendants said. They accepted a contract with an early retirement offer that may prevent 2,300 furloughs by AMR Corp., the airline’s parent.
