KCM A Success
The Known Crew Member program was implemented on October 1, 2012. The system performed as designed and has been very successful. Almost 100% of the Flight attendants that approached a KCM checkpoint were granted access. The very few flight attendants that were denied access were recently returned from a leave. The system cannot immediately update the status of flight attendants returning from a leave and needs a full day to process the information.
It is important to remember all crew members remain subject to random full screening. If the TSA officer is unable to verify employment status, the crew member should proceed through standard screening process and notify an Inflight Supervisor as soon as possible.

Affect Change, Take Ownership of Your AFA
Our union is member-driven and that means we are more successful when members are informed, engaged and involved. AFA International Vice President Sara Nelson invites you to take part in a four hour member seminar this fall to learn more about:
the work of our Union at every level and how to advance an idea or agenda.
running for AFA office or volunteering to work on an AFA committee.
how AFA dues are allocated to advance our priorities.
updates on current events, hot topics and an industry overview.
our Union’s achievements and the resources we have to tackle current issues important to Flight Attendants.
building our power through mobilization and collective action.
Each seminar begins at 12 Noon local time and ends at 4 pm.
