Reserves Picking Up Flying on Scheduled Days Off
April 22, 2020
Contract Sections 8.L & 8.M.
Flight Attendants awarded a Reserve line for the May bid month are reminded of the contractual provisions provided in Sections 8.L & 8.M. of our Contract. A Reserve may, at her/his option, pick up flying on scheduled days off once they have been released by Crew Scheduling.
Those new to Reserve or who have not been on Reserve in a while are reminded, that a Reserve may not, however, pick up a trip that has a scheduled check-in on a Reserve day of availability even if they have been released from duty (RLSD) for the remainder of the day. The value of the Reserve day has already been included as part of the Reserve minimum guarantee.
NOTE: Once a Reserve picks up a trip from Open time Flying that trip becomes ineligible for trading.
If you have additional questions, please contact your Local Council Reserve Committee for assistance.
