Restoring Reserve Days of Availability to RVS Lines with 16 Days Off for April
March 24, 2020
Systemwide, the company’s Reserve parameters for April established that all Reserve schedules would be built with more than the Contractual 12 days off. For April, all Reserve schedules have 16 days off with a commensurate reduction in Reserve Guarantee to 61:32.
Our Contract provides Flight Attendants with the contractual right to request restoration of some or all the days off above 12. In the bid packet, the lines indicate the days to be restored with a “+”. When restored, there is a corresponding increase to the Reserve minimum guarantee.
For the month of April, the Company and AFA have implemented a process intended to reduce the frustration of having to call Crew Planning to restore your days off. The process is outlined in the bid package cover letter and will be accomplished by e-mail.
Send an e-mail no later than March 30th at 0800 HDT with the following information in the subject line:
