2014 Flight Attendant Schedule Months

Date: August 16, 2013
Type: AFA Article

The time for Vacation bidding is almost upon us. In preparation for the opening of the Contractual bidding timeline outlined in Section 18 of our Contract, before the end of September, the Company will post the Reserve Letter lists in the domiciles.

The Primary Vacation bidding period opens on October 29, 2013. Consistent with the requirements of Section 2.W. of the Contract, the following are dates for the 2013 Flight Attendant Schedule Months.  We want to highlight some important changes to the 2014 Flight Attendant schedule months:

  • Management has made it that there are no 31 day schedule months in the summer periods and in December, which they believe will allow for better Reserve utilization
  • Management has also ended the Flight Attendant schedule year on December 29 in order to align our schedules in with Aircraft Scheduling and Flight Operations. 

The revised Schedule months for 2014 are:

January 12/31 – 1/30 31 days
February 1/31 – 3/1 30 days
March 3/2 – 3/31 30 days
April 4/1 – 4/30 30 days
May 5/1 – 5/30 30 days
June 5/31 – 6/29 30 days
July 6/30 – 7/29 30 days
August 7/30 – 8/28 30 days
September 8/29 – 9/28 31 days
October 9/29 – 10/29 31 days
November 10/30 – 11/29 31 days
December 11/30 – 12/29 30 days

In the coming weeks we will provide more information regarding Vacation Bidding, Reserve A/B Rotation Letters and we anticipate publication of our annual Vacation Article shortly.
