Section 3.I.11. – Consumption of Alcohol while on Deadhead Status
September 25, 2019
JCBA Section 3.I.11.
While we are on the subject of being rescheduled from deadhead to working status, a review of the language in Section 3.I.11 is in order. As provided for in Section 3.I.11, a deadheading Flight Attendant may only consume alcohol, after takeoff, under the following conditions:
1. The Flight Attendant is not in uniform.
2. Lineholders do not have a scheduled flight departing within twelve (12) hours after scheduled arrival at a domicile or co-terminal point; or, at a non-domicile layover point, will not be legal to be reassigned or drafted to work any flight for at least twelve (12) hours after scheduled arrival.
3. If a Reserve, would not be legal for assignment for twelve (12) hours after scheduled arrival at a domicile, co-terminal or non-domicile point.
4. If all of the conditions above are met, the Flight Attendant may drink only after takeoff, and, in the event of a multi-segment deadhead, may only drink on the final deadhead segment.
If you have questions about the application of this language, please contact your Local Council office.
