LOSA Observations Continue
Originally posted October 5, 2023
We are entering the next phase of our Line Operations Safety Audit (LOSA) program. Starting October 8, 2023, LOSA observations will occur over six continuous days each month. Like the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP), participation in LOSA is entirely voluntary, and identifying information such as Flight Attendant names, dates, and flight numbers are never associated with observation data. If you have any questions about the LOSA program, please don’t hesitate to contact the AFA members of the LOSA Steering Committee.

President Biden’s Speech At The Tempe Center for the Arts
On September 28, 2023, President Biden delivered a speech about the state of democracy at the Tempe Center for the Arts in Tempe, Arizona. The White House invited 40 Union leaders from the Arizona AFL-CIO, who, in turn, selected Melissa Osborne, LEC President of Council 35 (SFO), and Majo Tanco, LEC Secretary of Council 18 (LAX), to attend the event.
The event’s main focus was to announce the dedication of a local library to the late Senator John McCain. The audience had the opportunity to hear from various notable speakers, including Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs, Ambassador Cindy McCain (Senator John McCain’s widow), and President Biden himself. Other attendees included Tempe Mayor Corey Woods, former Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, Phoenix City Mayor Kate Gallego, and more.
In his speech, President Biden emphasized the importance of unity in a country struggling with division and eroding democracy. He urged Americans to unite under a common cause and work together to maintain and protect the freedom our founding fathers secured for us. Union members in the room felt the message of solidarity and unity was not lost on them.
This year, the US labor movement has been a shining example of the power of solidarity. As we approach the end of the year, Flight Attendants all over the country are ready to stand together and fight for our right to fair wages and working conditions. We recognize that we can accomplish more when we help each other, regardless of the airline or Union we belong to.
