July 22, 2020
Flight Attendants interested in electing to fly through their September vacations are encouraged to review the two types of Vacation Fly Through options, Advance Notice Fly Through & Operational Fly Through prior to selecting an request.
Advance Notice Fly Through requires notice to the company of your intent to fly through a vacation period in a future month. In this instance, September. However, in order to avail yourself of this opportunity, you must advise the company no later than 10:00AM (HDT) on the fifth (5th) day of the calendar month prior to the month in which the vacation is scheduled. For example, to fly through a September vacation, you must notify the company no later than 10:00AM (HDT) on August 5th.
Lineholders choosing to fly through a vacation period and who notify the company prior to the fifth (5th) day of the month are obligated to fly any and all pairings that fall within the designated vacation period, unless their schedule is altered through the process of trading, dropping or RDOing the scheduled pairings within the vacation period. Flight Attendants opting to advance fly though their vacation currently have no restrictions when picking-up trips; the trips may be picked up from Open Time, from other Flight Attendants/ advertisements, or mutually traded.
A Reserve who chooses to fly during her/his scheduled vacation period shall be paid the value of each vacation day (3:15) in addition to the greater value of either her/his Reserve guarantee or hours flown. Reserve Flight Attendants considering electing a vacation fly through option should review the following E-lines article regarding Reserve vacation fly through.
