ABOUT APFA: Twenty years ago today, on November 18, 1993, the Association of Professional Flight Attendants organized the last successful strike in the airline industry and in doing so brought American Airlines to its knees. For four days in November of 1993, while flight attendants of what was then one of the country's largest carriers picketed at airports, American's flights departed without any passengers on board. It took President Clinton's intervention to bring an end to the job action.

The Association of Professional Flight Attendants, founded in 1977, represents the more than 24,000 active flight attendants at American Airlines. In November 2011, American’s parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Throughout the bankruptcy trial, APFA President Laura Glading served on the Unsecured Creditors’ Committee where she advocated for the American Airlines Flight Attendants. In February 2013, American and US Airways announced their intention to combine the carriers and on December 9, 2013, AA exited bankruptcy and the merger was final. Achieving a merger inside bankruptcy is unprecedented in the industry and would not have occurred without the efforts of American’s labor unions, particularly APFA.
