Picking up CQ Training Pairings
January 4, 2019
MEC Communications Committee
2019 CQ is now available for Flight Attendants with a January due month. Lineholders can pick up training pairings from open time beginning at the start of open time window.
Lineholders are responsible for adding a training pairing to her/his schedule during the due or grace month. If you are unable to fit a training pairing in your schedule on days off while maintain minimum days off, contact the Flight Attendant Support Team (FAST) at 1-800-FLT-LINE (option 4, then option 2) during the Real-time trading window. Representatives will review your specific schedule and class availability.
FAST will review your originally awarded schedule and the training classes available for that bid month to determine when you can be scheduled for training. If you are unable to fit a training pairing in your schedule and do not call FAST to resolve the issue of scheduling training, beginning on the 6th of each month, the training team will identify and assign training pairings for you.
Reserves should contact FAST at 1-800-FLT-LINE (option 4, then option 2) during the Real-time trading windows to have a training pairing added to her/his schedule. The preference is for this to occur at the beginning or end of your Reserve block. Depending on when classes are available this may or may not be possible to achieve. If you do not call FAST, beginning on the 6th of each month, the training team will identify and assign training pairings for you. Reserve Flight Attendants are not required to move Reserve days of availability to accommodate the scheduling of CQ.
Flight Attendants needing additional information are encouraged to contact their Local Council.
