APFA Weekly Hotline – January 31, 2013
We are hearing from more and more flight attendants about problems with the company-issued Tablets as distribution increases. Management has stated that OSRs will be removed from the aircraft shortly leaving the Tablets as our only means of processing passenger purchases on board. APFA is working with the company to see that these problems are resolved soon. Please continue to provide APFA with your feedback.

New Hire Classes (REPEAT!)
Lots of rumors about delaying new hire training. The first class started on January 28, 2013. The company has told APFA that the only delay will be with the second class as a result of the large number of candidates and the required processing time. Classes are scheduled every Monday beginning February 11, with two classes a month also starting on Wednesday. We look forward to our new hires joining us on the line.
