Flight Attendants and Survivors Reunite to Celebrate Life and Recognize

Heroes

FORT WORTH, Texas, April 2, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Airlines today presented Golden Heart awards to 19 flight attendants who have administered emergency medical attention by using onboard defibrillators. Flight attendants and their families came together at the C.R. Smith Museum in Fort Worth to celebrate the lives saved and heroic measures taken during medical emergencies inflight or at an airport terminal.

Dan Garton, Executive Vice President - Marketing, joined Lauri Curtis, Vice President - Onboard Service, Corporate Medical Director Thomas Bettes, M.D., and the Association of Professional Flight Attendants to applaud the efforts of the flight attendants and to honor the 82 people whose lives have been saved since American became the first airline to install defibrillators on its aircraft in 1997.

"Ensuring our customers have the safest possible experience has always been our top priority," said Curtis. "Our flight attendants are the best trained in the industry, and their outstanding efforts during medical emergencies are further evidence of the meaningful ways in which they touch passengers' lives every day."

American began installing defibrillators seven years before being mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration. American flight attendants annually undergo training on the defibrillators as part of their recurrent training. The first life saved by a defibrillator on a commercial flight took place in February 1998, and three Golden Heart ceremonies have been held since then, the most recent in 2004.
