FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Statement from The Association of Professional Flight Attendants

Grounding of 737 Max 8 & 9 Aircraft 

“We are relieved the U.S. Government issued an order to ground the 737 Max 8 & 9 today, days after the tragic accident in Ethiopia. The announcement was made shortly after an interview I conducted live on CNBC, and while I was being briefed by American Airlines senior management that a grounding was imminent. Our members, the Flight Attendants of American Airlines were growing increasingly concerned with their safety and the safety of our traveling public as days passed and news stories aired of global groundings. Flight Attendants are aviation’s first responders and safety is in our DNA. We deserve a thorough and transparent investigation into how this accident occurred and how an accident such as this can be prevented in the future. American Airlines has assured us they are working to minimize any inconvenience to our members and passengers who may be impacted by this grounding.”
