Cabin Jumpseat Authority- How to Identify the Number of Available Jumpseats
January 22, 2020
MEC Communications Committee
Whether Flight Attendants are commuting to/ from work or are leisure traveling, knowing how to determine the number of available open jumpseats helps us plan our travel accordingly.
The Fleet Reference Guide is a chart that displays all aircraft configurations, aircraft numbers, capacity and total number of jumpseats. The Fleet Reference Guide is found in multiple locations:
· Link – Content Locker- Fleet Reference Guide
· Flying Together- My Work- Fleet Guide
· CCS- “Other” tab- SHARES- type “GG JUMP FLEET”
Once the total number of jumpseats is identified, the number of working Flight Attendants needs to be determined for the respective flight number to find out how many open/ available jumpseats there are.
In CCS- SCHEDULE tab, choose CREW LIST from the drop-down menu. Simply input the flight number and the date of the flight you are interested in, then click on the orange “Crew” next to the flight details.
