Colgan Air Flight 3407 Remembrance: Our Fight for Rest

Colgan Air Flight 3407 Remembrance & Our Fight for Rest

February 12, 2023 - We pause on the 14th remembrance to honor those aboard Colgan Air Flight 3407, February 12, 2009. 

In memory of the Colgan Flight 3407 Crew:

  • Flight Attendant Matilda Quintero
  • Flight Attendant Donna Prisco
  • Captain Marvin Renslow
  • First Officer Rebecca Lynne Shaw
  • Captain Joseph Zuffoletto, (off-duty)

Flight Attendant fatigue is real. Proper rest is critical for Flight Attendants to do our work as aviation’s first responders.

Our 10 hours of rest is fully implemented! After years of stalling by the previous administration. the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) finalized a rule requiring 10 hours minimum, non-reducible rest for Flight Attendants between duty days – finally implementing a 2018 law that will make aviation safer for over 100,000 Flight Attendants and the passengers in our care.

We won’t forget how we achieved this major regulatory change for minimum rest.
