|AFA Council 66 eCommunication - October 30, 2011
It is with great sadness we inform you that Phoenix Flight Attendant Nick Aaronson was found dead in his hotel room in Mexico City early this morning. While an investigation is underway, our priority at this time is to provide support for Nick’s family and our crewmembers.
Preliminary findings do not indicate a safety breach at the hotel. Therefore, we do not believe our crew members are at risk. However, until this matter is resolved, layover crews will be temporarily relocated to an alternative location.
Members of the AFA EAP are available to all flight attendants at: 480-966-1231 x27 or 480-729-1276. In addition, members of the US Airways Flight Attendant Critical Incident Response Team can be reached at: 800-998-8194.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Nick’s family and friends during this difficult time.
