Oh dear. It seems that American Airlines is running into some of the same issues that it’s OneWorld partner British Airways has, and is heading towards a Flight Attendant (not cabin crew) strike by the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA).
It’s got to the point where American is doing what BA did – and are getting other people trained up “for your safety”
“To assist with necessary flying, the company is seeking volunteer American Airlines management employees who are willing to complete flight attendant training to temporarily staff flight operations. Though we hope and expect that we will not have to implement our contingency operation, this sort of planning is the responsible and unfortunately necessary thing to do to protect our customers and the company.”
Whilst a strike notice needs 30 days leaving time to negotiate, American is laying down it’s planning already….
