EULESS, Texas (WEHT) — One hundred American Airlines flight attendants have tested positive for coronavirus.

That’s according to their union, The Association of Professional Flight Attendants.

The union says the airline has agreed to start providing face masks for frontline team members.

American Airlines refused to comment on how many employees had tested positive for COVID-19.

The union says only about 1 in 4 of its flight attendants will be flying in May, due to major cuts in the airline’s schedule.
