Holiday Pay is calculated using a formula that accounts for the number of credited hours flown during the holiday pairing and how much time away from home the pairing has. Premium pay is not used when computing holiday pay. A Flight Attendant’s hours away from home begins at the pairing report time and ends at the conclusion of the scheduled debriefing time upon the return to the home domicile.
