IMPORTANT NOTE: BID TO COVER YOURSELF!
Bids will be awarded in Flight Attendant seniority order. If you do not bid, or do not bid a sufficient number of lines, you will be awarded the lowest numerical line and position that is available at that point in the process. Assuming lines are available at your seniority, the insufficient bid logic of the program awards lines before Reserve and domestic before international.
For additional information we encourage Flight Attendants to review Chapter 2, Section I of the Bidding and Awards guide where you will find the entire timeline of events, listed in chronological order. Questions and concerns may be directed to your Local Council.
