“I watched this video last night and it had me feeling so silly about the years I’d spent taking and absorbing these messages from the company and believing them.”

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) expects nearly 20 million passengers during this year’s Thanksgiving holiday travel, from Friday, November 19 through Sunday, November 28. In order to best prepare for a safe, efficient travel experience our union - the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA - offers this guidance for passengers:

When Delta management changed to a biweekly pay schedule in 2019, they took away the flexibility so many of us loved and the stability in our paychecks we counted on.

As unruly passenger incidents remain at an all time high, AFA is launching a platform to collect your experiences to fully assess the problem and help get meaningful support to all crews.

Take this five minute anonymous survey to share your experiences with unruly passengers onboard this year.

We should all get the same treatment from our FSMs whether we’re based in SLC or NYC. We all deserve a fair process to defend ourselves if management disciplines one of us unfairly.
AFA’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is here to help Delta Flight Attendants who experience problems on the job confidentially, with resources and assistance to help you get through.

We’re back! Delta’s COVID restrictions are lifted and Delta AFA Flight Attendants were back in crew rooms this week talking with our flying partners about why we’re organizing for our Flight Attendant Union. Why? Better pay, better operational conditions, support, and more.

Huge news this week in our fight to ensure Flight Attendants have access to state sick leave laws! The Ninth Circuit gave Washington state the green light to apply its state sick leave law to airline employees, backing a trial court's decision to toss a challenge from the airline industry.

This Memorial Day, we pay tribute to the service and sacrifice of our military and their families. We rededicate ourselves to honoring their service by fighting for good jobs and healthy communities at home.

Today, May 31, is also International Flight Attendant Appreciation Day.

On Monday, the FAA announced civil penalties against five airline passengers for allegedly interfering with and, in two cases, assaulting Flight Attendants who instructed them to obey cabin crew instructions and various federal regulations.

Remember those hidden costs and missed compensation for us at Delta?

On May 7th, Delta management sent out a communication asking for volunteers to work the ATL Sky Lounge for free.
Flight Attendants create value for Delta through our work. We deserve to be compensated for our time and energy, not expected to volunteer for work that brings the airline value.
