Trips Picked Up Out of Base – Not Eligible for Mutual Trip Trading
December 13, 2019
Flight Attendants may trade their days off for an Out of Base pairing less than fourteen hours prior to departure, subject to special qualification parameters outlined Section 7.J.
Once a Flight Attendant has picked up an Out of Base pairing, however, the pairing can no longer be traded for another pairing. Our Out of Base Trade provision is specific to open time and advertised pick-ups, and trip trading is not permitted. Therefore, mutual trades between Flight Attendants located in different bases are not provided for under the provisions of Section 7.J. - Out of Base Trades in our Contract.
Please review Section 7.J. of our Contract.
