Dear Flying Partners:
We are in the process of communicating with the Company to ensure the safety of Flight Attendants in CHO. Our crew hotel is approximately an 11 minute drive from the protests and approximately the same amount of time from the airport, which is in the other direction and further away from the protests.
Our first priority is to confirm the safety of crews currently in Charlottesville. Next, we are advocating the company to work with AFA to provide non-punitive alternate options for those who are concerned for their personal safety if scheduled to fly to CHO.
Finally, our Union condemns the violence and terror perpetrated by white supremacists. It is more important than ever that we look out for each other and commit to stand together against hate.
Lee and Diane
