Delta Joins Airlines for America

This week, Delta and Airlines for America (A4A) announced that Delta will be rejoining the airline association with American, United, Alaska, Hawaiian, and more. Delta management knows we're stronger when we join together and speak with one voice.

Delta CEO Ed Bastian said the airline and its employees "look forward to rejoining A4A and working jointly with other airline members to address issues that impact our people, our customers and the communities we serve."

"We are more effective advocates for the traveling and shipping public when we speak with a unified industry voice," said Airlines for America (A4A) President Nicholas Calio.

Take note: United, American, and Delta joining together in Airlines for America. Read the statements in this article. This is exactly why we must redouble our efforts to join together! If we care about each other, our jobs, staffing, cabin configuration, healthcare, our share of the profits we create, we must build power for Flight Attendants.

RSVP for Upcoming AFA Town Hall Calls

Kick off the New Year by joining together on a Town Hall Call about our AFA campaign. We will discuss the status and next steps of our efforts to gain representation and a contract at Delta. We will take your questions and answer in real time.

  • January 28, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. ET


*Calls will be approximately 30 minutes.

ON THE FLY: Answering Questions

Delta asked Flight Attendants to consider six questions last week related to choosing AFA representation and even provided their own answers, but the information is outdated or incorrect. AFA International President Sara Nelson answered these questions in this video to ensure Flight Attendants have accurate information about our union and our campaign to gain AFA representation.
