Pairing Legality Diagnostics | Enhancements to Reserve Block In and CCS
February 5, 2020
New Pairing Legality Diagnostics in CCS
Effective February 5, 2020 at 2300 CT, you will be able to view any pairing legalities within the actual pairings displayed in CCS. Previously, any pairing legalities were only viewable in the “Alerts” section of the Master Schedule. Flight Attendants will now be able to see legalities in the pairing display view, as well.
To better help you understand each legality, company and Union representatives of the JIT have revised the short legality descriptions and have also created long descriptions which provide more detail. Both the short and long descriptions will be visible in the actual pairing display when they exist.
Additionally, color coding and legality descriptions have been added to the pairings in the calendar portion of the Master Schedule to indicate where a legality exists.
A separate guide has been created to explain all pairing legalities in detail, as well as the corresponding color coding found on the Master Schedule and can be found on Flying Together.
Enhancement to Reserve Block In
In October 2019, we implemented the Reserve Block In functionality in CCS. Effective February 5, 2020 at 2300 CT, you will now be able to see the status of your Reserve Block in on the calendar portion of your Master Schedule.
You must continue to block in on the Reserve Block in page. In addition, on your Master Schedule you will now see a new column [“Blk In Status”] on the far-right side of the pairing. This field will be populated with either “REST”, indicating you have been released to legal rest, or “CALL”, indicating you must call Crew Scheduling.
Additional details can be found in the January 30, 2020 One United communication.
