New Pre-Clearance Wrist Band Procedure; EOMs; Reassignments; COVID Notification and Absence Certificate Submission ; RSV A/B list and RLF When on Vacation ; MyID Travel Listing Change; Free COVID Test (Jan 22, 2022)

Mahalo to everyone who attended our Council 14 Zoom meeting on January 18th. I wanted to share some new information regarding Hawaii pre-clearance wrist bands as well as some issues that were discussed during our meeting.

New Procedure for Hawaii Pre-Clearance Wrist Bands

Read this January 20th article on Flying Together which explains the updated process for obtaining a pre-clearance wrist band.

EOMs 

During our meeting we discussed End of Month Conflicts, and the steps that can and/or will be taken to resolve it. Please refer to the Trip Trade and Adjustment Guide starting on page 95. Here is a chart showing the EOM Adjustment Timeline.

 

Here is a chart showing the Trading and Adjustments Timeline.

 

It is best to be proactive in attempting to resolve EOM conflicts. Otherwise the crew desk may assign you a pairing or even place RA days on your line if you haven't indicated Do Not Use on CCS>Schedule>Adjustment Request prior to bids closing. 

Reassignments

There were also questions about reassignment pay for international trips. Read this Inflight Services article on Flying Together dated 8/14/19.

Here is a useful chart that explains various reassignment scenarios and responsibilities.

 

 

COVID Notification and Absence Certificate Submission 

With the high number of Flight Attendants and other company personnel out on sick leave, the company has instituted a new process on Help Hub for reporting a Positive COVID case or Quarantine Order. You may also submit your positive COVID test via Help Hub.

RSV A/B list and RLF When on Vacation 

The company has not updated 2022 A/B Reserve Letter list for HNL on Flying Together. Flight Attendants reporting to HNL for the February bid month have not been added, although they have been issued their individual letters. As a reminder, you can find your A/B reserve letter on your monthly bid page on CCS>Bidding>Monthly Line Bid.

I want to remind those who are junior, that if you have vacation and it is your line month, you should bid every line. Although you cannot bid for a Vacation Relief Line when you have vacation, you will be awarded a VRL if it is your line month and you are unable to hold a regular line. Do not bid any reserve lines unless you want to be awarded a reserve line.

MyID Travel Listing Change 

You may have seen news that there is an updated access and listing procedure for reciprocal cabin seat listing for travel using MyID Travel. This is for travel on Southwest, American, Jet Blue, and Allegiant. You may now list directly by visiting https://myidtravel.ual.com and log in using your global ID and password.

Free COVID Tests Available

Residential households in the U.S. can order one set of 4 free at-home tests. Here’s what you need to know about your order:

  • Limit of one order per residential address
  • One order includes 4 individual rapid antigen COVID-19 tests
  • Orders will ship free starting in late January

Order Now: covidtests.gov

**Some have reported issues with ordering tests for people living in multi-family homes or apartment buildings. Residents facing issues with the USPS form can file a service request online or call the help desk at 1-800-ASK-USPS.
