2017 Reserve Letter Lists Now Available (UA)
2017 Reserve Letter Lists are now posted and available for viewing. These lists are available from the non-public area of our website as well as on the company’s website.

The 2017 Reserve letters become effective with the February 2017 schedule month, which begins on January 30, 2017. 

New Reserve Letter Trade Process for 2017: In previous years, Reserve Letter trades were submitted using a Unimatic DIS page.    This year, Flight Attendants who wish to trade their 2017 Reserve letter will do so via the Flying Together website. The new Reserve letter trade request form is located on the Crew Scheduling page on Flying Together and replaces the old Unimatic request page which is no longer operational.

Reserve Letter trades must be made with another Flight Attendant in your same domicile. Only one Reserve Letter trade is permitted each year. Reserve Letter trade requests may be submitted at any time, however must be submitted prior to the first schedule day of the month preceding the requested effective schedule bid month. Reserve letter trades effective for the February 2017 schedule month must be received for processing no later than December 29, 2016.

Reserve Letter trades are not recorded in the computer until the Reserve Letters are loaded into the VACBID screens, closer to the end of October. There is no seniority restriction for Reserve Letter Trades between Flight Attendants. 

Consistent with the requirements of Section 18.E. of the pre-merger United Contract, 2016 Vacation bidding will open on October 29, 2016 and will follow the schedule published in the Contract.
