December 13: Day of Action - Thank You! (Dec 14, 2018)

December 13: Day of Action - Thank You!

It was an amazing day and, on behalf of the entire Council, I want to thank all those of you who came in on their day off; those who landed at 06:00 and then waited patiently for the event to start; those who had later check-ins but still arrived early; and of course our out-of-base guest.  As evidenced by this momentous gathering of AFA-CWA Members at London’s Heathrow airport, levels of concern regarding the handling of the Merger and proposed staffing cuts is unprecedented. In joining our Sister and Brother Flight Attendants who participated in similar events around the globe, we made our collective voice heard. Our message to management is simple: staffing cuts will NOT help us to become the world’s no. 1 airline; while we are determined to see United succeed, we stand opposed to cuts that undermine both Service and Safety.

Management needs to stop sabotaging us and focus instead on getting the basics of this Merger right by being Safe – Caring – Dependable – Efficient. Live up to our corporate C O R E 4 values! Fix the ongoing payroll issues; ensure that crew scheduling remains contactable whatever the circumstances; provide Flight Attendants with timely access to transportation and hotel rooms even when affected by schedule irregularities; reinstall cross-aisles on the 76A and 76L aircraft and relocate the crew rest seats; eliminate excessive Reserve coverage and trip trading restrictions; stop being disingenuous when “inviting” Flight Attendants to mandatory training events; and enhance worldwide travel benefits.

Thank you all again. It was a great day and you make me proud to be your representative.

Fly safe and in solidarity!

Happy Holidays!

Portable Legality Formula


Calculating the time at which you will go illegal is very simple and you can use it regardless of what flight you're on and what station you're leaving from!

First, subtract your Scheduled Duty Time from the Maximum Duty Time permitted for your scheduled Flight time. 

(Maximum Duty Time as per Sec 12.L.2. : 16:00 hrs for scheduled flight time 8:01 or more, 15 hrs for scheduled flight of 8:00 or less). 

For example:

FLT 984 LHR-IAH Aug 11, 2014
Scheduled Duty Time: 12:55 hrs
Scheduled Flight Time: 10:25 hrs; therefore Maximum Duty Time: 16:00 hrs (15:60 makes it easier to add and subtract)

        1560 (16hr maximum converted for ease of arithmetic)

-       1255 (scheduled duty time)


This number represents how much time you have to play with before you go illegal, i.e. 3 hours and 5 minutes before you will exceed your 16 hour maximum duty day.

Next, add that number to the scheduled departure time of the flight:

In the case of our example of FLT 984 on Aug 11, 2014, the scheduled departure time is 1140, so


+         305


You are legal up to 1445; you are illegal at 1446!
