CQ Training Resumes in June

Date: May 23, 2020



In March, United was granted a 15-month CQ exemption from the FAA for Flight Attendants with a February thru May CQ training month, however their second petition requesting an additional 90-day extension was denied.  

The following plan has been developed to return Flight Attendants to qualification status over the next several months. The training center is scheduled to re-open in mid-June with the months of June, July and August used to train active Flight Attendants who had a February thru May CQ training due month. 

Flight Attendants required to attend training will receive a CCS Priority message regarding their due month. With those who need training first prioritized according to the following schedule:

  • Flight Attendants with a February CQ Due Month will go non-qualified on June 1 and will attend RQ1 in June
  • Flight Attendants with a March CQ Due Month will go non-qualified on July 1and will attend RQ1 in July
  • Flight Attendants with an April CQ Due Month will go non-qualified on August 1and will attend RQ1 in August
  • Flight Attendants with a May CQ Due Month will go non-qualified on September 1and will attend RQ1 in September.Flight attendants with a September CQ month will attend CQ in October. Flight attendants with October and November CQ month will attend CQ in November.

FAST team members will contact Flight Attendants to schedule Regulatory Training (RQ) training. No RQ training pairings will be placed in open time for Flight Attendants to pick up.

Full details of what you can expect when returning for RQ training, refer to Flying Together

Note: As part of this plan, Flight Attendants on a COLA will not be requiredto attend regulatory training during their leave period.
