We are all painfully aware of the events of this past weekend in Paris. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of France, as well as to all the victims and their families. Following an event of this nature, it’s not unexpected that many of us may feel a mixture of contradictory emotions – anger at the senseless loss of life, relief that none of our flying partners were caught up in the actual events and sadness at the misguided efforts to curtail our individual freedoms and our way of life. While we aren’t able to control the actions of others, we are able to act in a way that minimizes our potential exposure to these senseless acts of violence.
Flight Attendants who are working crew members will have the ability to travel with up to two people using buddy passes who will travel at the Flight Attendant’s personal pass classification.
The FAA has advised United Airlines management that beginning on October 1st and continuing through the fourth quarter, onsite inspections of our carry-on baggage process will be conducted.
The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA), is proud to applaud the life-saving action of the crew of British Airways flight 2276.
As we remember the events on that tragic day in September, fourteen years ago, we are reminded of the many Heroes, all first responders, who were taken away from us. They will always be our Heroes, and will forever bring an extraordinary meaning to the 11th day of September.
As we stated in Friday’s AFA E-Lines due to the continued conflicting challenges of the ISAP program, we have developed a survey to ensure the ISAP program is meeting the needs of Flight Attendants. We have had an overwhelming response and ask that if you have not already done so, please take a moment and fill out our Safety Reporting System Questionnaire available on our website.
