Vacation Fly Through & Vacation Open Time Trades by Seniority

Date: December 8, 2018

MEC Communications Committee 

In the December 4, 2018 Scheduling Alert, management informed us that Vacation Open Time Trades by Seniority were not awarded in correct order impacting approximately 298 Flight Attendants.  All vacation trading was suspended until December 7, 2018 1000 HDT.

The re-award of the vacation open time trades was completed and visible in CCS yesterday afternoon. December 6, 2018. There were 298 Flight Attendants who had a change in their vacation award. Included in the 298 flight attendants, there were 155 Flight Attendants that requested a vacation fly through and who now need to resubmit those requests in CCS

In addition, there were 40 Flight Attendants who entered into a trade with another Flight Attendant that either participated in vacation open time trading and/or traded with someone that did. These trades have been reviewed and it has been determined that there was no change to the originally awarded trade.

The approximate 298 Flight Attendants who participated in the Vacation Open Time by Seniority who also were awarded Vacation Fly Through or a Flight Attendant to Flight Attendant Vacation trade, should have received additional communications from the Flight Attendant Vacation Team in CCS.
