Customs & Border Patrol Bag Search/Questioning:

We have received several reports  from Flight Attendants arriving into the United States from foreign ports, stating they are being subjected to bag searches.  Additionally, several are reporting that the Customs Officers are stating the company has asked them to perform these searches, and report their findings to American Airlines.

If you have a similar experience, please contact us at with as much information as possible.

Details should include:

  • Flight number & date
  • Arrival station
  • Officer’s name & badge number
  • Officer’s comments regarding search
