APFA Representatives Flying to SCL to Review Disinsection Process – LAA/LUS

Next week, APFA National Leadership and representatives of AA management will fly to Santiago, Chile (SCL) to review the disinsection process used on our widebody fleet.

Disinsection is the term used to describe the process of applying pesticides as required by some countries for in-bound flights. As stated in a previous hotline, APFA learned that some crew bunk areas were included in this process, resulting in suspected exposure to toxins by some of our crews. The health and safety of our membership is paramount and we will be reviewing the disinsection process carefully to ensure all measures are taken to keep our crews and passengers safe.

Updates will follow our findings as to how disinsection procedures will be carried out moving forward, as well as any resulting changes in the general maintenance and servicing of the crew bunk areas.  

If you are experiencing symptoms that you feel are the result of a suspected exposure after using the crew bunks, please go to www.apfa.org and complete a Crew Bunk Health Issue Feedback Form.
