The Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) has launched a campaign for better benefits for flight attendants working on regional flights under the American Airlines, Delta and United brands.

The Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) has launched a campaign for better benefits for flight attendants working on regional flights under the American Airlines, Delta and United brands.

As part of the campaign, flight attendants will today (March 31) conduct a protest across two terminals at Washington National Airport.

The union, which represents 19 airlines, said the protest will be “the first of many” across the country highlighting the pay gap between regional and mainline flight attendants.

AFA president Sara Nelson said: “The three major US carriers are pocketing a portion of their profit by promoting wage inequality. It’s the same brand, the same passengers buying tickets but the pay for aviation’s first responders is a fraction of that for crew on mainline flights.”
