The consultant appeared to be Brandon Conwill, a committee chairman at Delta’s chapter of ALPA.
“The chief pilot told this individual that it was a CDC thing that it’s not your job to go telling people you were infected,” Conwill says. “That’s one cause the corporate was telling folks, ‘Hey, don’t inform the flight attendants you have been sick or the rest of that nature.’ If there actually is steerage that you simply’re supposed to inform those that clearly wants to be communicated fairly clearly as a result of apparently that’s getting misplaced in translation.”
Delta in a letter to HuffPost mentioned it was conscious of the video “and the discussion contained within it and are monitoring – our initial read is this is not consistent with our [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention]-informed notification process.”
The report comes lower than three days after ALPA, in a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration, mentioned some carriers haven’t been following Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention steerage that they let their staff know after they have been uncovered to COVID-19.
“Friday’s reports of the death from COVID-19 of an American Airlines flight attendant is especially sobering, and highlights the exigency of taking all needed measures to avoid further contagion of airline crew members,” Joe DePete, president of ALPA, wrote in the letter, which was dated Tuesday.
