pmUAL Per Diem Statements

Date: February 9, 2018
Type: AFA Article

Every year the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) updates the per diem rates to reflect Cost of Living Adjustments for every city in in the world. Once these adjustments have been made, these revised rates are used for lodging, meals and incidental expenses when traveling on official business. The per diem amount allowed for meals and incidentals is specific for each city in which you have had a scheduled layover.  For most cities, this expense allowance is greater than the per diem we receive as Flight Attendants.  Depending on your individual IRS filing status, you may be able to use this difference to your advantage.  We recommend that you contact your tax professional for further information. Per diem reports are available via My Info on the Flying Together Website.

Contact the Payroll Care Center if you are unable to access your personalized Per Diem report by calling the Payroll Care Center via the Employee Service Center at 877-825-3729.
