No Bid versus an Insufficient Vacation Bid Award
November 2, 2018
Flight Attendants who did not submit a vacation bid in the first round of bidding, will be considered a No Bid. No vacation will be assigned during the first round of vacation bidding. You will, however, be required to bid all of your accrued days in the second vacation bid round.
In the event a Flight Attendant does not submit a vacation bid in the second round of bidding, she/he will automatically be assigned a vacation. Keep in mind, you will be assigned vacation after the second-round vacation awards have been completed for all Flight Attendants who did submit a bid. Vacation will be assigned in seniority order from December backward through January, with the largest block of days being assigned first.
In the instance of an insufficient bid, that is, when a Flight Attendant submits a vacation bid and is unable to hold any of her/his selections. In this instance, vacation is assigned in seniority order from December backward through January after that round of vacation has been awarded to all bidders. The assignment shall be based on the number of days in your bid with the largest block of days assigned first.
