Flight Attendants are entrusted with the safety, health, and security of passengers on a daily basis. Studies have been commissioned by Congress making it clear that more rest should be mandated for Flight Attendants, but the regulations remain unchanged, and with the rules in place today, Flight Attendants could have a mere 8 hours of rest following a 14-hour duty day. Unfortunately, those 8 hours don’t add up to 8 hours of sleep.
We are urging Congress and the FAA to help us fix this problem—and create provisions that call for an increased rest time of 10 hours to get Flight Attendants and pilots on the same page and keep both our crews and passengers safe and happy.
