Local 42 - May 2019 Schedule Update (Apr 10, 2019)
AFA Council 42 May 2019 Schedule Update
The May Flight Attendant schedule month is a 30-day month, beginning Thursday, May 2nd, and ending Friday, May 31st. Domestic line averages are similar compared to April and slightly higher in the International package.
Line averages are between 79:41--84:14 hours among crew complements. An increase in all-nighter/red eye turns and increased frequency of high time turns, allowing the committee to build more consistent day of week turn lines.
Line averages are between 78:27-85:31 hours among the crew complements.
IAH is assigned 4 positions daily on the late LHR flight.

Reserve Lines for May:
May was a little more challenging than usual for building lines. There are four dates of Backstage and two holidays, Mother's Day and Memorial Day, to build around. Attempting to build as many clean lines as possible for Reserves while accommodating the company's requests for adequate coverage was slightly more difficult. We did have requests for more 6-day availability stretches to help when bidding around vacation so, you may see more than usual.
