CALL NOW: Tell Your Representative to Support the AIRR Act!

The House FAA Reauthorization Bill (H.R. 2997) protects our jobs from outsourcing and sets 10 hours non-reducible minimum rest for Flight Attendants. We need all hands on deck right now if we are going to keep this issue alive and make it law.  But it won't happen without your action. 

Call your Representative TODAY at 855-980-2366 and tell them to support the 21st Century AIRR Act (H.R. 2997)! 

Here's what you can say when you are connected:

"I'm your constituent and a Flight Attendant. I'm calling to urge my Representative to vote YES on H.R. 2997 when it comes to the House floor. This FAA Reauthorization bill ensures I have 10 hours non-reducible rest and prevents the outsourcing of my job. Flight Attendants can’t wait any longer for these safety and job protections. Please vote YES on H.R. 2997. Thank you." 

Calling is easy: When you dial the number, you will automatically be connected to one of your Senator’s or Representative's office after a brief message. It may take several attempts to reach both, so keep calling every day! 

Why are Flight Attendants supporting H.R. 2997? The bill advances priority safety and job protections for Flight Attendants, including:

  • Flags Don’t Fly Here — prevents the DOT from awarding foreign air carrier permits to airlines that use the flags-of-convenience model
  • 10 Hours Non-Reducible Rest and a Fatigue Risk Management Plan for Flight Attendants
  • Banning Voice Calls on Planes
  • Secondary Cockpit Barriers
  • Customer Service Agent Assault Penalties
  • Cabin Evacuation Certification Standards
  • Impact of Seat Pitch on Safety
  • Nursing Rooms in Airports
  • Improved Insecticide Notification
  • Expanded Airport Personnel Human Trafficking Awareness Training
  • Improved Lithium Ion Battery Regulations
