Cancellations & Flight Delay Notification
When Flight Attendants are faced with changes to their schedule, especially during irregular operations, they are contractually required to be notified as set forth in Section 7.X. which requires that if a delay or cancellation is known two (2) hours before scheduled departure time, Flight Attendants are to be notified of the delay as soon as possible, provided the delay is estimated to be more than thirty (30) minutes.
In the event the Flight Attendant is not notified according to the outlined parameters and checks in at her/his originally scheduled report time, he/she should contact Crew Scheduling to confirm that the report time of her/his pairing accurately reflect the hour at which she/he checked-in for the flight assignment. In such a circumstance, it is important to note that different crew members may have different report times for their duty day. This will depend on whether or not the Flight Attendants have had positive notification of the delay by Crew Scheduling. You should not hesitate to request the update to your report time whether at home or at the layover point. It is always a good idea to keep records of changes to your duty day via screen shots or pictures to maintain for your records.
For additional information refer to section 7.X of our JCBA or reference e-lines publication dated March 20, 2019.
