Statement by the APFA National President, Lori Bassani
APFA Base Presidents Call for Possible Boeing Lawsuit Over the 737 MAX
“The voting board of directors of the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA) has expressed an interest in exploring the possibility of a lawsuit to seek damages from Boeing as a result of the grounding of the 737 MAX. Last month, one local president inquired about the possibility of looking into the issue. Others expressed their concerns this past week, following media stories where APFA’s situation was compared to Southwest Airlines Flight Attendants’ position on the 737 MAX. AA has several types of aircraft in their fleet, while SW depends mainly on the 737. Although the Union negotiated pay protections in March covering Flight Attendants whose schedules and pay were impacted by the grounding of the MAX in a Letter of Agreement with the company, the grounds for a suit will be researched and determined by the APFA Board this week.”
