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.

    • Everyone who seems to die these days (or the past 100 days for that matter) is due to Covid.

      That’s why I don’t trust the data they speak of. It’s all flawed. I keep my mask own and maintain distance and avoid places that pushes my personal limits. Can’t true any outlet these days…they all have their own narrative and agenda they’re pushing.

  1. Doesn’t matter the true cause of death…it’ll be blamed on Covid as every other death that has happened in the past 3 month.

    Heart attacks and stroke have taken a back burner to Covid it seems.

    • Unfortunately in these times is a real possibility. It just happened less then 2 months ago in my neighborhood. Husband was out of work due to COVID. Family was in financial trouble, suddenly & unexplained the husband was found dead in bed. Fast forward 2 month a later the wife was recently arrested for poisoning the husband over the the life insurance payout. Reality of the world we live in today, sad but true.
