Flight Attendant Instant Vacation Trades with Open Time Opens December 5
December 1, 2018
Now that the seniority based phase of vacation trading has concluded, the remaining vacation allocations will be posted on December 4, 2018 prior to the opening of instant vacation trading on December 5, 2018 at 8:00 AM Local Domicile Time (LDT). The instant trade window will remain open throughout the balance of the 2019 schedule year. If you wish to trade for an open vacation period(s) you will need to submit a vacation trade with open time request. The latest the trade request must be submitted thirty (30) days before the earliest calendar month involved in the trade.
Vacation trades with open time are “instant” trades. Once entered, they are either accepted or rejected. Once processed, these trade requests do not remain on file for further consideration. If you wish for any request to be considered at a later time, you must re-enter the trade.
Flight Attendants wishing to trade with open time not currently available should continue to check the allocation matrix because the following circumstances can affect available vacation days.
- Any vacation days awarded, that are vacated later (e.g. separation from company, retirement, etc.) will be added to the allocations.
- If a Flight Attendant trades down to fewer vacation days with another Flight Attendant or for open vacation days, any surplus of unused days will be added to the allocations for use by another Flight Attendant.
Additional information concerning the Instant Vacation Trade with Open Time option, including a step-by-step guide on how to submit a trade on CCS, is available in the 2019 Vacation Modification Guide.
