    Flight Attendants Urge Passengers to Report Extreme Temperatures on Planes with New App

    Most airline passengers have suffered from uncomfortable temperatures on airplanes, often sweltering on the ground and then shivering in the air. But now they can help build the case for establishing rules to keep airplane temperatures within reasonable limits.

    September is National Suicide Prevention Month

    According to a June 2018 Center for Disease Control and Prevention release: "Mental health conditions are often seen as the cause of suicide, but suicide is rarely caused by any single factor. In fact, many people who die by suicide are not known to have a diagnosed mental health condition at the time of death. Other problems often contribute to suicide, such as those related to relationships, substance use, physical health, and job, money, legal, or housing stress."

    Have you called the Senate this week for 10 hours rest?

    Eighty Flight Attendants from across the industry had appointments with the majority of Senate offices to encourage them to vote for our 10 hours minute rest in the FAA Reauthorization bill. They made progress, but we need your calls to back them up.

    Call 855-534-1774 to tell your Senators to maintain the House language of 10 Hours Rest for Flight Attendants, and not a minute less, in the FAA Reauthorization Bill. It's about safety, health and equality - we are the only country in the world to have different minimum rest for Flight Attendants and Pilots.

    Review where 10 hours stands in Congress: The bi-partisan House FAA Reauthorization Bill was already adopted, 393-13, with our 10 Hours included in the base bill. The Senate bill has not yet been voted on. Currently it allows management to reduce 10 hours to 9 hours, and some of the airlines are working hard to keep it that way. Fatigue studies show we are fatigued - and more rest is needed to close this safety loophole! Ten hours minimum equal rest with the flight deck is the bare minimum. Hold our elected representatives accountable for our safety, health and equality! Call now and each day until we make 10 hours law.
