Reserve Holiday Wish List

Pre-merger United Flight Attendants on Reserve for the month of December, have an opportunity to preference where they would like to layover for the three (3) days preceding and two (2) days following Christmas. Section 10.C.13.c. of the pre-merger United Contract provides for the Reserve Christmas Wish List and for these assignments to be made in seniority order. When submitting your requests, you will be asked for your Reserve LOF number as well as your Reserve status (CLLR/RSV). Requests may be submitted for up to four locations.

You may submit your holiday layover requests through a link which will be available as of December 4th on our AFA website. We encourage you to put an initial request on file early and modify your request if your circumstances change later in the month to take full advantage of the flexibility of our programming. The last request on file will be the request that will be considered at the time of assignment. The submission page will detail the dates of your request and must be finalized to be considered.

For a full list of deadline dates for the holiday period, as well as more detailed information please visit United Crew Scheduling will make every attempt to accommodate the Reserve Christmas Wish List layover requests to the best of their ability.
