Vacation Fly Through and Vacation Trades Temporarily Suspended (Dec 05, 2018)

All Vacation Fly Through and Vacation Trades will be

temporarily suspended

Date: December 5, 2018

In response to questions regarding Vacation Open Time trades by seniority, our research indicates these trades were not awarded in the correct order impacting 298 Flight Attendants. To resolve this, in compliance with the JCBA and to ensure Flight Attendants are holding vacation periods to which entitled by seniority, in consultation with AFA a decision has been made to re-award Vacation Open Time trades by seniority.  In order to facilitate the compute work that needs to be done to complete the re-award, Vacation fly through and Vacation trades between Flight Attendants will be temporarily suspended beginning December 4, 2018 at 1700 CST until December 7, 2018 at 1000 HDT. Additionally, the opening of Instant Open Time Vacation Trades has been delayed until December 7, 2018 at 1000 HDT. 

Flight Attendants who participated in the Vacation Open Time Trades by seniority process, any awarded Vacation Open Time Trades will be removed and re-awarded.  Corrected Vacation Open Time Trades by seniority awards will be visible on December 7, 2018 at 0800 HDT. 

For Flight Attendants who participated in the Vacation Open Time Trades by seniority process and were awarded Vacation fly through, you will need to re-submit your fly through request as of December 7, 2018.

If your specific situation involving Vacation Open Time Trades or Fly through requires further action, you will receive additional communication with further instructions.
