2017 Benefits Enrollment Guide Now Online – LAA/LUS

The Annual Benefits Enrollment Period for AA employees will begin on October 17th  and run through October 28, 2016.

AA has launched the Benefits Enrollment Guide online. You can access it by going to www.my.aa.com and Get Ready For Annual Enrollment.

Please take the time to review the Plan Options to determine which plans are best suited for your family needs.

AA will also be sending benefits pamphlets via regular mail.

Proper Disposal of Former Uniform Items – LAA/LUS

With the recent cutover to the new uniforms, please remember to follow proper security protocol for disposing of former uniform items. Uniform disposal guidelines are listed in the General Policies and Guidelines section, page 1.19 of the In Flight Manual.

Policy states that selling, donating, or giving away uniform items with AA logos or insignias, including AA wings, to persons outside of American Airlines Flight Service is prohibited, due to the potential security risk it could pose.

As a reminder, Flight Attendants should remove any AA embellishments on garments such as insignias, stripes, or buttons from items that are donated or given away to non-AA employees or organizations.

Reporting or Filing an IOD – LAA

One of the frequently asked questions in the IOD Department is “Can I report an IOD and not miss time from work?”

The answer is yes, you may file an IOD with your supervisor without losing time whether or not you receive medical treatment.
 
In the event you do not seek immediate medical attention and later require medical care, contact your local IOD Coordinator if you are based at LGA, BOS, or MIA.

If you are based at DFW, LAX, SFO, STL, ORD, RDU or DCA, you may contact the Injury Administrator at the  Flight Attendant Service Center:
 
Call 1-800-VIP-CREW, then select options #, 6, 4

At the first prompt – enter the extension:

  • Ext 35148 – Amy Huffman (ORD)
  • Ext 35146 – Jeromeo Grayson (DFW/STL)
  • Ext 35145 – Michelle Smith (LAX/SFO/BOS/DCA)
  • Ext 35147 – Angela Jefferson (RDU)

IOD procedures for LUS Flight Attendants remain unchanged.
