Staffing Changes Drive Changes to Work Position on February Bid Matrix
January 16, 2019
The updated bid matrices incorporating the Polaris galley packing and service flow changes are effective, February 1, 2019 however, Flight Attendants should be aware that the February schedule month begins on January 30 and the international matrix will reflect a mid-galley position on select fleet types for two days only (January 30 and 31). Pairings 6400-6499.
The company has made a decision to continue to staff the 777W/X aircraft in the DEL market with eleven (11) Flight Attendants to support the company’s reliability metrics. The FAA minimum staffing required on this flight, including the augmented staffing for the duty period is ten (10) Flight Attendants. Were the company to staff the flight with the requisite ten (10) Flight Attendants, should any member of the crew become ill or unavailable on the layover, the crew complement would be reduced below the required minimum and the flight would not be able to operate. By staffing the eleventh Flight Attendant, the company will be able to operate the flight having the FAA minimum of ten.
