Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT.


Notice of extension of comment period.


In accordance with 14 CFR 11.47(c), the FAA has received a petition from the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA-CWA). That petition requested an extension of the comment period for Alaska Airlines, Inc. petition for exemption. That exemption, if granted, would allow Alaska Airlines to eliminate the requirement for a procedure on their B737-400 combination passenger/cargo operations for a flight attendant to enter the pilot compartment in the event a flight crew member becomes incapacitated. The FAA finds that AFA-CWA has a substantive interest in the exemption request and has shown that good cause exists to extend the comment period if consistent with public interest.
