American Airlines (AAL) Flight Attendants Want This Recalled

Posted on

How can your flight attendant be positive and cheerful when serving you, if she or he is itching like crazy under their uniform?

American Airline flight attendants are mad that their new uniforms are giving them rashes, hives, and headaches.

Back in September, the airlines flight attendants had received a wardrobe upgrade but the outfits seem like a flop.
“We have received over 1,600 flight attendant reports of suspected uniform reactions that include headaches, rashes, hives, burning skin and eye irritation, itching, and respiratory problems — to name a few,” the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA) — American’s flight attendants union said in a memo to its members late Wednesday.

“The growing number of reports of suspected reactions, triggered by both direct and indirect contact with the uniform, has prompted APFA to ask that all uniforms be recalled until further joint testing with the company can be completed,” the union said.

According to American Airlines spokesman Ron DeFeo, the carrier has already done three rounds of testing, but all results have so far been “in line with normal standards.”

The union however is calling for ” a remedy that excludes a full recall of the uniform fails to adequately protect our members.”
