Three Things You Should Know About The Kiwi Club!

American Airlines Flight Attendants Uniforms

Who We Are

The Kiwi Club is a unique philanthropic social group. Membership eligibility consists of former and current Stewardesses/Flight Attendants from American Airlines, American Eagle (non-contracted), now Envoy, Trans Caribbean, Air Cal, Reno Air, America West, TWA, and US Airways. We are governed by a nationally elected Board of Directors.

​One of the many benefits of belonging to The Kiwi Club is friendship. A familiar answer that is heard from members who are asked how they benefit from being a member of The Kiwi Club is:  “Fun and life-long friendships”. 

What We Do

Kiwis are generous.  We have raised and contributed millions of dollars to various charities, including the Wings Foundation – an organization that provides help for online AA flight attendants in need. The Kiwi Club has donated over a half-million dollars since it began supporting Wings in 1996.

Kiwi support doesn’t stop with monetary assistance, voluntary hands-on involvement by members and their families is also provided.

Kiwis love to be together and do so at local meetings and events. See our News-Just-In page for a look of some of our meetings.

What our Members say about The Kiwi Club

"The Kiwi monthly luncheons  and the bi-annual Conventions are truly special events!  They keep us connected so beautifully to the friends with whom we shared the gift of being able to travel for a living! I often find myself  explaining what a Kiwi is…perhaps I talk about The Kiwi Club a bit too much?”
