Flight Attendants Union Pres. Calls for Universal Precaution Kits on Flights
Sara Nelson, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants, was on “The O’Reilly Factor,” where she expressed concern over the threat of Ebola.
“This is at the forefront of what flight attendants are thinking about as they’re going to work,” she said.
Nelson explained that flight attendants are charged with the safety and security of passengers, and now, there is a risk that they could encounter the Ebola virus at work.
Bill O’Reilly pressed Nelson on whether she would support a travel ban.
She said we need to be looking at every option to stamp out the risk of Ebola.
“If we have a travel ban […] that alone is not going to stop the problem,” she said.
Bill O’Reilly asked Nelson for one thing that the union would like but does not have.
“We would like to see universal precaution kits boarded on every single flight, available to every single crew member and any health care providers who may be on board to help us contain an incident,” she said.
