The Association of Flight Attendants bills itself as the world´s largest flight attendant union. It serves as the voice for flight attendants in the workplace, in the aviation industry, in the media and on Capitol Hill, AFA has transformed the Flight Attendant profession by raising wages, benefits and working conditions.
