APFA Sends Letter to FAA Calling to Implement Key Components of FAA Reauthorization Bill

Euless, TX (April 26th) The Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA) National President Lori Bassani sent a letter yesterday calling on Acting Administrator Dan Elwell to step up the pace of implementing key provisions of the FAA Reauthorization Bill that passed on October 3rd, 2018.

Bassani stated, “We are now past the 6th month anniversary of the bill’s passage and it appears little has been done by the FAA to move forward on numerous key safety provisions vital to our members and this country’s Flight Attendants.”

In the attached letter, APFA urged the FAA to act quickly to fully implement the FAA Reauthorization Bill and increase the 10 hour minimum rest rule and address cabin air quality issues and the effect on cabin evacuation that affect crew members and flight passengers.

 “These are important health and safety issues, not just for our members, but for the flying public. It is high time for the FAA to move forward on implementing these important provisions of the bill,” concluded Bassani.
