AFA Notifies American Airlines Group, Twin Hill of Intent to Sue over Uniforms

March 23, 2018 — Flight Attendants at Envoy, PSA, and Piedmont, along with mainline American Flight Attendants, have suffered for over a year due to toxic uniforms. AFA members have reported symptoms associated with wearing the new uniforms including rash/irritated skin, eye irritation, breathing problems, and headaches. These symptoms mirror the types of symptoms reported by our sisters and brothers who are wearing these uniforms at mainline American. AFA has repeatedly encouraged American to remove the toxic uniforms from the property with a temporary replacement. While the airline has chosen a new future vendor, it will be years before the new uniform fully replaces the toxic uniforms.

AFA Calls on FAA to Respond to Opioid Overdoses Onboard

AFA Calls on FAA to Respond to Opioid Overdoses Onboard

February 23, 2018

The Honorable Daniel K. Elwell Acting Administrator
Federal Aviation Administration
800 Independence Avenue SW, Room 1010 Washington, DC 20591

Dear Administrator Elwell:

Opioid overdose deaths continue to increase in the United States, with six out of ten drug overdose deaths now involving an opioid. Passenger medical emergencies have and will continue to include opioid overdoses. Unfortunately, passengers may die from opioid overdoses on airplanes from the sheer lack of access to naloxone. Therefore, we urge the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to utilize its existing authority immediately to issue regulations requiring that the Emergency Medical Kits (EMK) carried by passenger airlines include naloxone nasal spray to treat opioid overdoses.
