Flight Attendants Fight Back: Historic, Powerful Worldwide Day of Action 

February 16, 2024 — Tuesday, February 13th was historic. No matter the uniform or union, thousands Flight Attendants took action for 24 hours at 32 airports around the world. From Anchorage to Miami, Los Angeles to Chicago, and London to Guam, our Unity transcended time zones, continents, and storms.

We took action together to push our common demands to significantly improve Flight Attendant contracts and careers. 100,000 Flight Attendants at airlines across the industry are currently in contract negotiations.

“Flight Attendants are fighting corporate greed and demanding our jobs make it possible to live a good life. Working people in every job and every industry can relate and we feel the people with us, ” said Sara Nelson, AFA-CWA International President, representing 50,000 Flight Attendants at 19 airlines including United, Air Wisconsin and Alaska. “Our work brings people together from every part of the planet and showcases the strength of our diversity within our solidarity. We’re making history by standing together as one to make the airlines compete to the highest standards for our careers.”
