On February 13, 2020, United management announced there would be an opportunity to offer one- and two-month Special Company Offered Leave of Absence (Special COLAs) effective for the April 2020 bid month. The company has not yet determined the number of Special COLAs that will be awarded.
Bidding closes at 0800 CT on Friday March 6, 2020.

Flight Attendants who are successfully awarded one of the April Special COLA options will be required to complete any overlapping assignments into the April bid month.
Flight Attendants with a special COLA request on file may be considered for an award at any time prior to the start of the April bid month if slots are still available. Awards will be published before March 12, 2020. Keep in mind, once a Special COLA is awarded, it cannot be rescinded.
