The December Flight Attendant schedule month is 30 Days, beginning November 30th and ending on December 29th. There is a contractual paid holiday; Christmas Day, on December 25th.
December international flying includes HNL, LIM, MUC, GRU, SCL, Mexico, Central America and Caribbean flying.
Line averages for December are 73:55 for domestic (up from 73:20 in November) and 75:28 for international (down from 75:45 in November). Line averages are extremely low in most crew compliments creating challenges for the committee. It continues to require mixing of IDs within many of the lines, in order to meet company quotas
