Vacation Relief Line Process

Date: August 21, 2019


As outlined in the monthly bid package cover letter, Flight Attendants may be awarded Vacation Relief Lines during the Primary bid period. During the primary bid period, Vacation Relief Lines (VRL) lines are awarded as follows:

International Purser Vacation Relief Line Range

2001 - 2199

Non-Intl Purser Vacation Relief Line Range

When Vacation Relief Lines of Flying are awarded, these lines are designated as follows:

It is important to point out that there is no self-adjustment process on the Vacation Relief Line award. VRL End of month (EOM) conflicts are adjusted immediately following the award of vacation relief lines by Crew Scheduling. Once awarded and adjusted, the VRL line is considered a Regular Line of Flying for trading, scheduling and legality purposes.
