This page has been established to honor past and present AFA Members.
In particular, we will always remember September 11, 2001. The Flight Attendants onboard those flights will always be our heroes, and forever bring an extraordinary meaning to the 11th day of September.
If you know of an AFA Member that you feel should be recognized or honored, please contact your Local Council.
