Pillows for passengers – free for a cause

To draw attention to their contract negotiations, to protest “chaotic air travel for passengers” and highlight what they feel are poor working conditions, American Airlines flight attendants will be handing out travel pillows today – Friday Oct 10th – at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, New York’s LaGuardia Airport and at airports in Miami and Los Angeles.

According to the Association of Professional Flight Attendants:

During Friday’s event, called “PAX for PAX” – PAX meaning both the Latin word for ‘peace’ and an airline abbreviation for ‘passengers’ – Flight Attendants will hand out informational flyers and travel pillows imprinted with the website promoting the ‘Peace for Passengers’ campaign.

Find out more about the campaign – and the issues – here – and grab a pillow if you can.

    I definitely feel for them. I took a pay cut a couple years ago, too, to save my job. I still haven’t gotten it back. And the future is not looking great, either, with the recession and higher unemployment.

    Anyone negotiating for a raise is in a tough bargaining position right now, especially if you work for an airline!

    This is ridiculous! Not only have AA’s flight attendants (second only to the rudeness of United’s FAs) repeatedly demonstrated that they could care less about the passengers, they should feel fortunate to have a job right now.

    I saw this today in LGA on my way home from business travel. I felt like telling the flight attendant some of my suggestions to making air travel a bit more pleasureable which include an improvement of disposition towards passengers. I understand flight attendants frustration to a degree, but will never figure out why they choose to engage in frivolous campaigns to bring the public into their negotiations.
