Who you gonna call?? (Sep 21, 2018)

Who to Call

Crew Scheduling and the Common Metal Support teams are currently experiencing very high call volumes. To ensure you can get your questions answered as quickly and accurately as possible, you need to know who to call:


·       To report instances of CCS error messages or problems accessing CCS screens, contact the United Service Desk at 1-800-255-5801 (option 9).

·       For operational schedule needs, vacation fly through requests, and reserve short block resolution, contact Crew Scheduling at 1-800-358-5463 (FLT-LINE) option 3 (pmUA flight attendants), or 1-800-338-2739 option 2 (pmCO flight attendants)

·       For general JCBA questions and clarifications or line awards questions / bid disputes, please contact the Common Metal Support Team (see contact information included at the bottom of this message).

·       For general how-to questions and in-base support, please visit the FABC desk within your Domicile.


Update Your Phone Numbers in CCS

All flight attendant phone numbers are now available in CCS under “My Info”. The contact information section on the Employee Info page will be pre-populated with the contact information from legacy CCS or Unimatic. Any non-numeric text that was previously included in the Unimatic phone field was not transferred to CCS.

 Additionally, everyone should ensure the phone type indicator (Cell, Home, Other) is populated correctly and update if necessary.


 Through September 30, 2018, pmUA flight attendants need to keep all phone numbers updated in both Unimatic and CCS. Starting October 1, 2018, pmUA flight attendants will no longer be able to see or update their phone numbers in Unimatic. All updates to phone numbers on or after October 1, 2018, must be made in CCS.

Common Metal Support Team

The Common Metal Support Team (CMST) is available to answer any question you might have on JCBA education materials including how to read the guides and help finding specific information within the guides. Additionally, the CMST can assist with line awards / bid disputes. If you have specific questions on how provisions of the JCBA work or apply to you, please contact your AFA Local Council Office. The team can be reached by:


Email: CommonMetal@united.com


Phone Number (U.S.):
