July is a 30-day month beginning on Tuesday, July 1st and ending on Wednesday, July 30th. There is a contractually paid holiday for Independence Day on July 4th.  Slight increase in line averages from June. Most crew complements are 73-75 hours, ranging from 72:53 in the Domestic 03FA crew complement to 78:16 in the International 01FA crew complement. These low line averages again required mixing of destinations in the international flying package in order to meet the company’s line holder targets/quotas. A few lines were constructed under 71 hours in order to meet the company’s quotas, the contractual 71-hour minimum will apply.

RESERVE summary for IAH and AUS

 

IAH July Reserve

 

July is a 30-day month with 1 holiday. Each reserve day is worth 4:20. There are 35 reserve lines for IAH. 23 lines have 16 days off with 4 restorable days and 12 lines have 15 days off with 3 restorable days. Days off that can be restored are indicated with a “+”. A reserve has a contractual right to restore any or all restorable days. We used patterns to create pure lines with the same days on as well as patterns with long stretches of days off for reserves who like to pick up on days off. There are 10 lies with July 4th off. 2 lines have all weekends off, 1 line has 3 weekends off, 10 lines have 2 weekends off, and 18 lines have 1 weekend off. There is 1 line with every Sunday off. The 15 day off lines are patterns of 5 and 6 days on.  

 

Special Qualification Bases IAH:

 

FSL has 5 lines. 1 line has weekends off.

GER has 2 lines. Each line has 2 weekends off.

POR has 2 lines built to company targets.

SPN has 7 lines. 1 line has weekends off.

 

 

AUS July Reserve

 

July is a 30-day month with 1 holiday. Each reserve day is worth 4:20. There are 6 reserve lines for AUS. All lines are built with 16 days off with 4 restorable days. Days off that can be restored are indicated with a “+”. A reserve has a contractual right to restore any or all restorable days. There is 1 line that has weekends off. Due to feedback from the Austin base, 5 of the 6 lines have at least 1 weekend off. 2 lines have July 4th off.

 

We are always looking for suggestions and ideas as to how to improve the reserve lines. If you have any feedback, please email DBannister@unitedafa.org.
