AFA Testifies on Boeing 737 MAX

(June 21, 2019) - AFA testified before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Sub-Committee on Aviation this week on the status of the Boeing 737 MAX, how it is affecting Flight Attendants and the flying public, and what is needed regain confidence before the 737 MAX returns to service.

Nelson TestimonyIn her testimony, AFA President Sara Nelson said, "Flight Attendants continue to receive questions from the traveling public about the 737 Max. There remains confusion about the progression of 737 aircraft models. It is common for crew to receive questions when working the 737NG about whether the aircraft is safe. This signals a fundamental question about the progression of the 737 aircraft models and whether or not the Max should have been designed as an entirely new aircraft type. This is an example of questions that will need to be answered within the process to safely return the 737 Max to flight and regain public confidence."
