Corona: American Airlines attendant dies

American Airlines flight attendant, 65, dies after testing positive for coronavirus Paul Frishkorn had tested positive for COVID-19 and passed away earlier this week, a spokesperson for the carrier told Fox News. Frishkorn worked for the airline for 23 years and was a union representative for the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA.)

“Our industry, our airline and all of us have been affected by COVID-19 in different ways. But until now, we hadn’t lost one of our own. This loss hits home in a very different, personal way from the headlines,” said the letter signed by Jill Surdek, American Airline’s senior vice president of flight service, as well as Lori L. Bassani, APFA president and Kim Kaswinkle, Philadelphia APFA base president. More
