Congress continues to move closer to a COVID-19 relief package. The volume of calls is what moves our elected representatives, and they are listening. We cannot let up now. Keep the pressure on!

Hello, my name is ______, and I am an American Airlines Flight Attendant of ___ years. My colleagues and I have been on the front line of this pandemic since Day 1, but thousands of us have been disconnected from our jobs and healthcare for the past two months. We need immediate Congressional action to extend the Payroll Support Program to save our jobs. But Congress must act soon.
We are now on the brink of widespread distribution of a successful vaccine, but the aviation industry must be positioned to aid in the distribution for this pandemic to end. Credentialed airline employees cannot simply return to work overnight. The Payroll Support Program must be extended now. A strong aviation industry is the economic driver we will need to build back our economy. Now is the time to invest in the jobs that will keep the industry and the economy strong. Thank you for supporting aviation workers like me.
APFA National President
Please remember, we have 7,985 involuntarily furloughed Flight Attendants at American Airlines.
