Upcoming Paid Holidays - HKG Handover Day (7/1) & U.S. Independence Day (7/4)

Date: June 26, 2018

Section 4.I. of our Contract stipulates, in addition to all other compensation, a working Flight Attendant(s) will receive additional pay for flight assignments on designated holidays defined in Section 2.Q. Flight Attendants based in HKG who are on flight assignment on Handover Day, July 1st, will received holiday pay as calculated using the formula outlined in Section 4.I. Flight Attendants based in the United States & GUM who fly on U.S. Independence Day, July 4th, will receive holiday pay as calculated using the formula outlined in Section 4.I. Calculations for both holidays depend on your status as a lineholder or a Reserve.

Holiday Pay is calculated using a formula that takes into account the number of credited hours flown on the holiday and the number of hours away from home on the pairing/ID. Premium pay is not included when determining holiday pay. Time away from home begins at the check-in time of the pairing/ID and ends at the conclusion of the scheduled debriefing time upon return to the home domicile.
