With the coming of new uniforms in American Airlines, many of the flight attendants made them sick. Over 1600 flight attendants have reported everything from the rashes to the headaches and also the respiratory problems since they began the wearing the new uniforms.




The initial testing done by American Airlines found that the composition of materials in the new uniforms was “in line with normal standards.” But the flight attendants say the different story, which made them impact on their health.




In January 2017, American Airlines flight attendant Heather Poole, who has a prolific online presence, began its blogging about her experience, after wearing the new uniforms, which were impacting her health. Heather Poole also shared her 20 years of experiences as an air hostess but did not come across such experiences after wearing these uniforms.




Along with the Poole, other flight attendants also complained against these uniforms.



A Chicago-based U.S. District Court judge will decide whether the class-action suit filed on Wednesday, by the two American Airlines flight attendants may proceed for any legal aid or not.



A union representing American Airlines flight attendants say more than 3,500 flight attendants have filed complaints about the uniforms. But according to the official release of American Airlines, the company offers the option sin wearing the uniforms. An alternative uniform is already issued for their safety.



The law suit repeats the complaints from American Airlines employees who say the uniforms, which were given to employees, cause the rashes, headaches, fatigue, vertigo and respiratory problems.
