Flight Attendant Instant Vacation Trades with Open Time Now Available

Date: December 8, 2018

Instant vacation trades opened this morning, December 7, 2018 at 8:00 AM (LDT), if you wish to trade for an open vacation period you will need to submit a vacation trade with open time request. If this trade involves a January vacation period, you must submit the trade by December 11, 2018.  The latest the trade request must be submitted is 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, as 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 Vacation Instant 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.
