New Cabin Cleaning Company Causes Flight Delays for American

American Airlines recently contracted out their cabin cleaning and the result has been hundreds of flight delays over the past few days.  The cleaning was previously done by members of the Transport Workers Union, but has been taken over by AirServe.  The flights delays, more than 300 of them, were at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, where workers from the new company did not have the proper security badges for secured areas of the airport.


The lack of security badges made it so that the new cleaning staff had to enter through the old mail-sorting facility for the airline in order to access the planes.  American, recently claiming bankruptcy protection, said that they would save $29.8 million by outsourcing the cleaning of the aircraft.  The switch to an outsourced cleaning company was agreed to by union members and resulted in the layoff of hundreds of union workers.
