LAS VEGAS (KTNV)  — Attendants for United Airlines are planning to protest on Dec. 13. at airports across the country.

McCarran International Airport is one of the dozens of airports where the protests will be taking place.

Forbes magazine says that flight attendants were informed that there would be cuts last month. The cuts will affect attendants working United's international business class service.

The union says that staffing cuts means fewer jobs and, more importantly, could affect the safety of passengers.

The union says that the protests are not expected to impact customers.
