Utilizing our Jetway Trade Provision

Date: April 23, 2019


Section 7.P.1-12

A Flight Attendant may drop the last segment of a pairing to another Flight Attendant by calling scheduling no earlier than one (1) calendar day and no later than four (4) hours prior to the scheduled departure or the segment to be traded for all segments that depart and arrive within the United States, including Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

Note:For flights to/from FRA, GUM, HKG, LHR, NRT and other Flight Attendant domiciles, a Flight Attendant may drop the last segment of a pairing to another Flight Attendant by calling Scheduling no earlier than one (1) calendar day and no later than six (6) hours prior to the scheduled departure of the segment to be traded

Additionally, Flight Attendants can advertise a segment of their pairingfor a Jetway tradeby utilizing the Electronic Bill Board (EBB) available on CCS. 

Scheduling shall approve the Jetway Trade under the following conditions: 

·       Both Flight Attendants are Lineholders 

·       The Flight Attendant trading into the last segment must be on an unassigned day and meet all legalities and qualifications required.  The trade will not be approved if it results in any legality for either Flight Attendant 

·      The segment traded is not a deadhead segment 

The Flight Attendant who traded into the last segment of the pairing must confirm with Crew Scheduling no earlier than six (6) hours and no later than two (2) hours prior to scheduled departure and must check in for the flight at the designated reporting time and location, in accordance with Section 6 R or the bid cover letter, as applicable.

Note: The original Flight Attendant must remain in position and with the aircraft, if applicable, until the replacement Flight Attendant is present, (i e. there must be a physical handoff at the airplane or designated check-in location). The replacement Flight Attendant must be at the airplane/designated check-in location no later than the check-in time listed in Section 6.R or the bid cover letter as applicable. If, for any reason the replacement Flight Attendant does not report for duty, the original Flight Attendant must operate the segment 

Once the trade is approved, neither Flight Attendant may trade or be awarded PTO, a personal drop or DAT for the pairing or portion of the pairing. 

In the event the original Flight Attendant is reassigned or drafted before the replacement Flight Attendant has confirmed with Scheduling, the Jetway Trade shall be considered void.
