The "Fly Till You Die" program*  

Many flight Attendants have expressed concern about the retirement benefits changes. Management understands these concerns and has developed this new program to assist Flight Attendants in their Golden years. 

The "Fly Till You Die" program will eliminate the need for retirement 
benefits altogether! The "Fly Till You! Die" program is designed to assist Flight Attendants who are over age 75.

   Benefits Include:

A handicapped parking pass for the employee lot.

Large print OBM's (On-Board Manuals)


Discounts on prescription bifocals and walkers. 

Low impact senior aerobics at select layover hotels .

Up to four sick calls per year before disciplinary procedures begin, and up to two months un-paid leave for hip surgery. 

Priority seating areas while waiting for domicile elevators. 

Unlimited re -takes on Jet Recurrent proficiency tests

Gate-to-gate wheelchair assistance for connections under 1:45.

Un-challenged orthopedic uniform shoe exceptions .   Free shuttle service between airport and nursing home. 

Expanded death benefits for Flight Attendants who expire while on duty. (Excludes deadheading)

American Airlines has developed this industry-leading benefit program because we recognize the importance of all our front-line employees, and appreciate your contributions and experience. 

*As usual benefits subject to change or cancellation at any time without prior notice.
