Known Crewmember Access - LUS

The Company has started the distribution process of the new AA Crew IDs in most bases. Legacy US Airways Flight Attendants should present their newly issued AA Crew ID badge at the KCM portals for entry. However, it is necessary to show the TSA Officer the US Airways badge number to gain access. Your US Airways badge number is printed on the reverse side of your new American Airlines badge. In addition, please do not make any changes on the KCM website to the airline associated with your KCM Card until you are advised to do so.



Sensitive Security Information –
 LAA/LUS

Sensitive Security Information, also known as SSI, is information that if publicly released, would be detrimental to transportation security. The TSA has determined that disclosure of SSI information would —  

  1. Constitute an unwarranted invasion of privacy (including, but not limited to, information contained in any personnel, medical, or similar file); 
  2. Reveal trade secrets or privileged or confidential information obtained from any person; or  
  3. Be detrimental to the security of transportation.  

 

Specific examples of information that should never be posted on social media include, but are not limited to: 

  • Flight Service Manual Information, including specific security policies and procedures
  • Sequence/Pairing Details 
  • Layover Hotel/Transportation Name and Information 

 

Keeping this information confidential not only safeguards you, but also your fellow crewmembers. Help us to continue to work in a safe and secure workplace at all times.

Pre-Bankruptcy Retirees with AA Supplement Medical - LAA

We recently started receiving reports that 1114 group retirees with the AA Supplemental Plan (administered by HealthFirst TPA) who turned 65 this year, were receiving cancellation notices and a refund of their premiums. Retirees who retired after bankruptcy (1113 group) who are turning 65 are no longer eligible for any medical insurance from American.
 
After some investigation, it was discovered that the list of 1113 retirees turning 65 wrongly included 1114 retirees. You will be receiving a letter from HealthFirst TPA explaining the problem, and assuring you that your policy has not been cancelled, and the process for reconciling the refund.
 
If you have any questions you can not get resolved with HealthFirst TPA, please contact Patrick Hancock at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
