Over the past weekend, representatives from 18 airlines represented by AFA met in Las Vegas for the 49th annual AFA Board of Directors (BOD) Convention.

I’m a Seattle-based Flight Attendant, and I’m about to celebrate my 8-year anniversary at Delta.

Next month, I will celebrate my eighth anniversary with Delta.

An AFA pin is more than just metal and paint. For generations, Flight Attendants and workers have worn pins to show our solidarity and our intention to stand up for our rights at work.

This Labor Day, Delta Flight Attendants can send a powerful message to one another, to management and to the passengers we serve that we are united. Wearing an AFA pin is essential to organizing our Flight Attendant union and is a clear sign that we’ve got each other's back.

Flight Attendants raise our hands to help immediately and every time. This time is no different. Already, Delta Flight Attendants and others at several airlines are working flights—safely ushering thousands of evacuees to the U.S.
Participation in CRAF evacuation flights can be extremely rewarding. It can serve as a hands-on way of being part of an international relief effort. If you are considering volunteering for a CRAF evacuation flight or if you have been scheduled for this important work, please consider the following stress prevention and management tips:
It seems like there’s a new example every day of why it matters to have a contract and a union to back you up.

As Delta Flight Attendants, we prepare for and respond to emergency situations onboard to keep the traveling public safe, but who is supporting us during and after these incidents occur?

AFA’s Critical Incident Response Program (CIRP) provides robust help and benefits to assist Flight Attendants who need support following traumatic or critical incidents, on and off the aircraft.

After new survey, Flight Attendants Union Calls on FAA, DOJ to take action, make “zero-tolerance” policy permanent

WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 29, 2021) — A new national survey of nearly 5,000 flight attendants released today by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA) found that over 85 percent of all respondents had dealt with unruly passengers as air travel picked up in the first half of 2021. More than half (58%) had experienced at least five incidents this year. A shocking 17 percent reported experiencing a physical incident.

"[Delta’s] ability to manage down labor costs is really unique in this industry." That’s what CEO Ed Bastian told shareholders on Delta’s quarterly earnings call today. This is just one more reminder that without a union contract, management holds all the cards.

Yesterday, TSA screened 2.15M people at airport security checkpoints nationwide. Thank you to all of Aviation's First Responders and aviation workers for keeping passengers safe every day and over the July 4th travel weekend.

Holiday travel weekends mean high stress on the operation and flight crews, and with summer storms and crippling heat making things even harder. AFA EAP is available for Delta Flight Attendants at 800-424-2406.
