Statement by Bob Ross APFA National President Representing Flight Attendants at American Airlines on Qatar Airways Seeking a Stake in American
The intentions of Qatar Airways are clear. They are using enormous government subsidies to gain a greater foothold in U.S. markets. They’re coming after our routes, which means the jobs of our members are at stake.
APFA members are working closely with other stakeholders in the U.S. airline industry to win fair enforcement of our Open Skies laws with Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. Allowing Qatar Airways a major stake in American Airlines can only undercut our efforts to preserve good jobs for U.S. workers and maintain open travel at affordable prices for U.S. consumers.
