Date: September 22, 2017
Type: AFA Article

2018 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 2018 Reserve letters become effective with the February 2018 schedule month, which begins on January 30, 2018.

 The same process as was used last year for trading your 2018 Reserve letters will be used this year via the Flying Together website. The Reserve letter trade request form is located on the Crew Scheduling page on Flying Together and replaced 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 2018 schedule month must be received for processing no later than December 29, 2017.  There is no seniority restriction for Reserve Letter Trades between Flight Attendants.
