APFA President Honors the Crew of Flight 1549

Dallas, TX – Earlier today Lori Bassani, National President of The Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA), made the following statement regarding this historic anniversary:

“Flight Attendants are skilled professionals who receive hundreds of hours of training. Each year our Flight Attendants are required to requalify in order to remain current on their safety duties. No one ever wants to have to use their emergency training in a real life situation. However, we know that with this training we are prepared to execute the duties and responsibilities that are second nature to us all. Donna, Doreen and Sheila exhibited those skills ten years ago, and their quick action saved the lives of 150 passengers. Today, APFA continues to honor our colleagues for representing our profession in its truest form.” 

Moments ago, President Bassani met with Captain Sullenberger to honor the Crew of Flight 1549.
