Type: AFA Article

As of 4:00 PM CT on Mach 30, 2018 Limited Critical Coverage (LCC) has been declared at all North American locations except EWR on Saturday, March 31, 2018.

Under the scheduling provisions of Section 9.J.3. of the pmUA Collective Bargaining Agreement, Limited Critical Coverage is a scheduling option available to management in times of anticipated coverage shortages. Limited Critical Coverage differs from Critical Coverage in that lineholders are not required to be available for the two-hour standby period.

After the Limited Critical Coverage is announced, pmUA Flight Attendants who pick up trips via open flying after 4:00 pm on Friday, March 30, 2018 that begin during the announced period on Saturday, March 31, 2018 will be compensated at 1.5 times his/her rate of pay. You must fly the trip to be paid the incentive.

At each affected domicile prior to making the Reserve assignments for tomorrow, management will run open flying for lineholders at 5:00PM.  Reserve assignments for the next day will follow immediately.   Once these Reserve assignments are completed, Flight Attendants may contact crew scheduling via FLTLINE to pick up open flying as provided for in Section 9.F.3.b. of the pmUAL Contract.

Please contact Crew Scheduling if you have additional questions.
