American Airlines Flight Attendant Dies Suddenly While Working
An American Airlines flight attendant suddenly died at work Sunday. He was 61, said American Airlines spokesman Ross Feinstein, and he was working alongside his wife. The late steward had worked for American Airlines for 20 years.
The two were working Flight 1296 from Indianapolis to Dallas when he fell ill. It diverted to St. Louis for the medical emergency. The reasons for the death were not made public by the airline.
In a letter, American Airlines expressed gratitude to the airport customer service and flight operations teams at St. Louis Lambert International Airport for their support for medical emergency and customers onboard the flight.
“We know that many of you worked with Joe and know you will miss him deeply,” the carrier said in the statement.
