We Salute Our Veterans – LAA/LUS
APFA honors America’s servicemen and women this Veterans Day. We salute all our members who selflessly serve or have served in the Armed Forces. We will never take for granted the sacrifices made in the name of freedom. Thank you!
Don’t Forget to Document Your Blues – LAA/LUS
If you choose to wear your former legacy uniform (blues) after having a reaction, or even if you do not feel comfortable wearing the new one until the issue is resolved, you must contact the AA Call Center to have it documented. Flight Service will be conducting compliance checks in order to verify that Flight Attendants who have chosen to wear the former uniform are on the list.
The former LUS & LAA navy blue sweaters and navy blue all weather coats are authorized for use by those who are wearing the former uniform or those who have been authorized to purchase their own gray pants/slacks and white shirt.
Remember, you are not required to launder items multiple times or follow unusual laundering techniques in order to get authorization to wear your former uniform. If you are uncomfortable wearing the new uniform for any reason, call the AA Call Center and get it documented.
- LAA - 1-800-VIP-CREW (#, 6, then option 5)
- LUS - 1-800-327-0117 (2,5,6,1, then option 2)
