Transportation & Infrastructure Subcommittee on Aviation: Air Rage


“Disruption in the Skies: The Surge in Air Rage and its Effects on Workers, Airlines and Airports”

Thursday, September 23, 2021
10:00 am (EDT)


Air rage has become an everyday occurrence for Flight Attendants. We are experiencing verbal assaults daily and physical assaults with a frequency never before seen in the airline industry. APFA, along with Flight Attendant Unions across the industry, have worked to make sure this dangerous issue is front and center on the minds of our elected representatives in Washington, management at American Airlines, and media outlets across the country.

Flight Attendant Unions across carriers have continued to pressure the FAA, DOT, and local elected Government Representatives to ensure that anyone who would assault a Flight Attendant is dealt with swiftly. Over the past two years, we have seen fines levied, often without urgency. Flight Attendant advocacy on this issue has moved the Biden Administration and the FAA to not only increase penalties for those who commit assaults but to ensure they are processed more expeditiously.

This Thursday, an APFA Flight Attendant will testify in front of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Subcommittee on Aviation to tell our story and continue to let our elected leaders know that more needs to be done to make our skies safe. APFA will testify virtually, and you may add a reminder to your calendar from the House Committee page to watch the live video of this hearing.

In Solidarity,
