Second Round Vacation Bid Period Closes November 16

Date: November 14, 2020

Second Vacation Bids opened on November 8 and will close this Monday November 16, at 0800 HDT.  With everything going on in recent weeks, it’s important to remember to plan for next year’s vacation, especially if there are time periods off that are important to you.


Keep in mind, that if you do not submit a bid, or have an insufficient bid, you will be automatically assigned a vacation. The vacation you may be assigned will be after all the second-round vacation awards have been completed for those Flight Attendants who did submit a sufficient bids.  In this instance, your assigned vacation will be made in seniority order from December backwards through January, with the largest block of days being assigned first.
