Uniform Reaction Report Count – LAA/LUS

As of today, there have been 3,478 Flight Attendants who have filed uniform reaction reports. APFA is continuing its own independent testing of the uniforms and will update the membership as soon as the results are known. Please utilize the Uniform Reaction Report Form on the APFA website if you experience a suspected reaction to your uniform.

You should also contact the AA Uniform Call Center – Open Daily, 0700 – 1800 CST. (Regardless of whether you report a reaction, you will be given the option to wear the old uniform or purchase like pieces of comparable style and color for reimbursement.)

 
  • LAA1-800-VIP-CREW (#, 6, then option 5)

  • LUS1-800-872-7456 (2, 2, 5, then option 2)

In addition, we encourage you to order the Aramark uniform if you have any concerns about the current uniform. The order form is still available on Jetnet. Please review the Frequently Asked Questions about the Aramark collection.

You should also consider filing an IOD, depending on your personal circumstances, if you have experienced an injury or illness that you suspect is related to your uniform. Instructions for filing are posted below, but if you have questions about filing an IOD, you can contact Bellia Peckson at iod@apfa.org

IOD Filing Procedures: 

LUS – Flight Attendants will file an IOD via the Flight Service Website by clicking on Safety and Security then LUS Injury on Duty Report, formally known as a Safety Event Report (SER).

If you do not seek medical attention and later require medical care, contact the LUS Injury on Duty Administrator Team at 800 327 0117, prompt 2, 5,4,3
 
LAA – You will need to file an IOD with your supervisor. Contact the MOD if your supervisor is not available. If you do not seek immediate medical attention and later require medical care, contact the Injury on Duty Administrator Team at 1 800 VIP-CREW.
