Hot2Cold Winter is Here

Last week a burst of cold temperatures swept across the country causing many locations to experience unseasonably low temperatures. Flight Attendants reported extremely cold aircraft cabins, especially when operating an early morning flight.
The FAA currently does not have temperature requirements for cabin conditions as a result we experience working conditions that can be too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. We face these extremes all too often. Thanks to so many of our Flight Attendants we continue to record these extreme conditions by collecting firsthand reports from our members. The data you help us collect will help to persuade leaders in Washington to regulate safe temperatures on board the aircraft improving our work conditions and ensuring the safety and comfort of the traveling public.
Help us collect more reports this winter by downloading the 2hot2cold application to your smartphone or tablet. Visit AFA-CWA 2Hot2Cold to download and review the current data collected.
