FAA Administrator Steve Dickson today signed an order directing a stricter legal enforcement policy against unruly airline passengers in the wake of recent, troubling incidents.

On November 19th, 2020, Delta Inflight Service Senior Vice President Allison Ausband notified Delta Flight Attendants of changes to your PSY commuting policies.

No matter how you commute to work, it’s no secret that Delta’s antiquated commuter policy has plenty of room for improvement. Join your flying partners for a virtual Fireside Chat on Tuesday, Jan 12 at 4pm ET to share stories, address rumors, answer questions and have your voices heard as we work toward a comprehensive commuter policy at Delta that aligns with current industry standards.

But in a crisis, we can’t count on anything. Without a contract, management can change things overnight. They are already telling us every day how things are changing, without discussion or anything in black and white to protect us.

COVID-19 has forced the country into an unprecedented emergency and the murder of George Floyd has propelled our nation into the streets to demand change and declare that Black Lives Matter. The AFA Executive Board unanimously passed our Black Lives matter resolution last week.

The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA Executive Board unanimously adopted the following resolution on June 5, 2020:

WHEREAS, the murder of George Floyd is just one in a long line of incidents of law enforcement officers killing Black people; and,

WHEREAS, Black, brown and indigenous people face police violence, prosecution and incarceration in disproportionate numbers; and,
