Kate Hanni

Flyers Rights founder Kate Hanni

Kate Hanni has been a real estate broker for 17 years. She is also a professional musician in a Motown Band called the Toasted Heads. December 29, 2006 would be the turning point in Kate’s life and career, when thunderstorms diverted her Dallas-bound flight from San Francisco to Austin. Kate and her family were stuck on the tarmac for 9 hours without food, water, or information. Kate turned her anger into advocacy and began Flyers Rights (formerly the Coalition for an Airline Passenger’s Bill of Rights), the largest non-profit airline consumer organization, now boasting almost 17,000 members. Kate has appeared in multiple media outlets as the Coalition’s spokesperson.  Learn more about Flyers Rights
