No Involuntary Furloughs

We appreciate the help of our flying partners who were able to avail themselves of the benefits afforded by the Partnership Program while saving the job of a more junior Member.  Together we continue to successfully save jobs.

Partnership Waiting List

The Company will maintain a waiting list of Partnership requests and award additional Partnerships in seniority order based on the seniority of the senior Flight Attendant in the Partnership.  Requests may be submitted at any time and will be awarded as the Company determines an additional need.  It is also anticipated that the program will be extended beyond this 6 month period which will provide another opportunity for everyone to bid and receive a Partnership award.
