Flight Attendant Injuries Landing and Deplaning Procedures

There has been some questions about what happens when a Flight Attendant is injured and plane returns to gate or flight gets diverted for a emergency landing. These procedures are outlined in your FAM beginning on page 8–2 and gives procedures for both the 200 and the 900. Important things to remember

  1. Do Not Sit Incapacitated Flight Attendant in Jumpseat if they are unable to act in an Emergency. Relocate them to nearest seat and secure them in the seat. If no vacant seats move ABP to AFT Flight Attendant Seat and put the FA in the ABP’s seat. Briefpassenger on seatbelt and harness operation.
  2. Once aircraft if parked the incapacitated Flight Attendant is removed, prior to passenger deplaning, if necessary.

Safety Demo Equipment

Page 3–33 of your FAM gives you location of where safety Demo Equipment is to be stored. There are no alternative locations on the 900 aircraft. All Demo Equipment is to be stored in Compartment #301 located in the galley. It is not to be stored in the overhead bins in First Class.

Several reason why:

  1. It is a FAR to use those bins for Demo Equipment
  2. In event of emergency per our procedure you go to proper storage place to retrieve Demo Equipment.
  3. Crew coming in behind you will look in proper location for Equipment during their pre-flight and it should be in that correct location not in overhead bins.

Security Check

Page 3–18 in FAM states to conduct a security check prior to leaving aircraft which includes to check overhead bins for suspicious articles or lost articles. This requires the opening of the bins to check them as well as the small bins in First Class and lavatory should be check prior to leaving aircraft.

ASAP Roadshow

The members of your ASAP ERC will be available in MSP crew room on June 5 to answer any questions about how the ASAP program works and how it benefits you the Flight Attendant to provide your input into this program. Booklets outlining the ASAP program and the Fatigue program will be available along with some goodies. All are welcome if you are based there or just flying through.

ASAP Roadshows

ASAP Roadshow’s coming to all bases starting in April.
AFA Endeavor Air Safety, Health, & Security is pleased to announce that there will be ASAP Roadshows at all of our bases.  First on our list will be LGA on April 5, 2017 and JFK on April 6, 2017.  We will have the ASAP ERC Representatives from Inflight Management, the FAA, and the AFA available in the crew rooms.

We will explain the differences between filing an ASAP and a Flight Incident Report (FIR) and we will have a quick guide to ASAP available that includes definitions used in Safety reports. We will also be including information in regards to Fatigue Risk Management.
