If an International Purser drops all their awarded International Purser Pairings from her/his line, then picks up an International Purser pairing from open time, outside of their geographical base, will this time count towards the fifty (50) hours?
No. The International Purser must finish the month with 50 hours (20 hours for job
shares, partnerships, and half-month leaves) of qualified (International Purser) flying from their assigned base on their line. Hours picked up out of open time from another base do not count toward this requirement.
Since an out of base pairing refers to a different geographic location, as an International Purser, may I trade my International Purser Pairing with any Flight Attendant in my geographic base?
International Pursers pairings may only be traded with other Flight Attendants who are currently active in the International Purser sub-base.
Can a Language Qualified Flight Attendant or International Purser, based in their respective Special Qualification sub-base, trade their Special Qualification pairings with Open Time for non-Special Qualification pairings?
No. A Language Qualified (LQ) Flight Attendant may only trade their LQ pairing for another LQ pairing in open time or with another Language Qualified Flight Attendant having the same language qualification. The same is true for International Pursers in the International Purser base. They may only trade their International Purser pairing for another International Purser pairing in open time or with another International Purser.
