Senate bill includes flight attendant-approved language

The Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee has voted to include language promoted by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA to address fatigue through a Fatigue Risk Management Plan (FRMP) for Flight Attendants, the association said.

The Senate rest language does not match the bipartisan language in the House AIRR Act that requires irreducible 10 hours minimum rest between duty periods for Flight Attendants. AFA continues to press forward to achieve 10 hours minimum rest equal to the pilots

The Association of Flight Attendants is the world´s largest Flight Attendant union. Focused 100 percent on Flight Attendant issues, AFA has been the leader in advancing the Flight Attendant profession for 70 years. Serving as the voice for Flight Attendants in the workplace, in the aviation industry, in the media and on Capitol Hill, AFA has transformed the Flight Attendant profession by raising wages, benefits and working conditions. Nearly 60,000 Flight Attendants come together to form AFA, part of the 700,000-member strong Communications Workers of America (CWA), AFL-CIO.
