A longtime American Airlines flight attendant has died while awaiting the results of a coronavirus test.

Paul Frishkorn, a longtime union representative in his 60s, died in Philadelphia this week, the airline confirmed Wednesday.

The news came as flight attendants have told how they fear for their lives because of the lack of social distancing on board plane.

They likened the close contact conditions to being ‘on the frontline’, with one saying they are ‘very much on edge’.

Friskhorn had taken a test for coronavirus after becoming sick, but was still waiting for the results when he died.

He left a voicemail greeting on his phone in his final days saying he was ‘very ill’, CNN reported.

His exact cause of death has not yet been released by Pennsylvania authorities.

‘Our hearts go out to Paul’s family and friends, many of whom work for American,’ American Airlines said in a statement.
