Uniform Reaction Update – LAA/LUS

APFA has received reports from 2,887 Flight Attendants about suspected reactions to the new uniforms, and we continue to receive new reports each day. 

APFA has also received many requests from Flight Attendants for information about the results from the testing that APFA has done on the new uniforms to date. APFA has prepared the following fact sheet about APFA’s testing results which can also be found on the APFA website and the New Uniform Reaction Report Form:

Uniform Reaction Fact Sheet.pdf

We caution, however, that the testing that APFA has done to date has been limited, both in terms of the number of items tested and the methods that we have used, and our investigation about the safety of the new uniforms is continuing. We remain in talks with the Company about undertaking a comprehensive and meaningful joint testing plan of additional uniforms. APFA may also test additional uniform pieces on its own in the future.

As stated in previous hotlines, we encourage Flights Attendants to contact the AA Uniform Call Center at the numbers below to return to wearing their blues if they are uncomfortable wearing the new uniform.

If you have disposed of your old uniform, you can still get authorization from the Call Center to purchase articles of like color and style including white shirts, and gray pants or skirts. Regardless of which uniform you are wearing, the newly issued wings and name-tag may be worn. Please note that you must contact the Call Center if you want to return to your old uniforms or buy articles of clothing as an alternative to the new uniform. 

LAA 1-800-VIP-CREW (#, 6, then option 5)
   LUS1-800-327-0117 (2,5,6,1, then option 2)
(Call Center Open Daily, 0700 – 1800 CST)


If you have reported a suspected reaction, you also should consider filing an IOD, depending on your personal circumstances even if you have not missed work because of the suspected reaction.
