Default Aircraft sanitization

Is the company doing anything domestic to sanitize inside the aircraft , containers being loaded or unloaded ? I asked a ramp agent couple weeks ago and he did not see anything like this going on ....... Safety ? Where is it ???????

The FOM and FARís state if they are not SAFE don't fly them. Simple.

This has not been my experience this week. Every aircraft I have been on had just been cleaned or the cleaners were arriving. I did have to call once for scrrenwipes and sanicoms.

Agreed. I jumpseat offline weekly and our cockpits are night and day cleaner than any other career Iíve seen in recent past. That said if someone has a specific complaint they should reach out to the union environmental committee

I havenít seen anything different or ďenhancedĒ about aircraft cleanliness aside from perhaps more screen wipes onboard and the ubiquitous purple gloves. Iím repositioning hydrogen peroxide wipes from sleep room bathrooms as needed to thoroughly wipe down cockpits, hotel rooms and ramp agents.

Sanicoms do not have the required alcohol content to kill the Coronavirus

I say just practice good habits and you should be fine. Donít touch your eyes or mouth, donít lick the ULDs, and wash your hands often.

From HKG with love,

I’ve been seeing the 777’s in MEM being sanitized, but not very detailed cleaning as still grime and spilled goo on the cockpit panels and knobs. STN is aggressively cleaning and sanitizing though.
