Cabin Jumpseat (CJA) and Non-Rev Etiquette Applies for Blocked Seats
August 12, 2020
On July 30, 2020, the company, in collaboration with AFA, updated information regarding the blocking of passenger seats located near jumpseats, in support of social distancing. The updated policy allows the blocking of additional customer seats located in close proximity to our jumpseats when the seats are not required for revenue or non-revenue passengers.
Commuting Flight Attendants should review the changes and keep the flight loads, non-revenue list, and any necessarily blocked seats in mind when planning their commute. Knowing how to determine the number of available open jumpseats helps us plan our travel accordingly.
Section 3.A. of our Contract provides Flight Attendants with the privilege of using the cabin jumpseat (CJA) as negotiated. In fact, we’ve negotiated the ability to list for both non-revenue standby and jumpseat authority at the same time. However, the use of CJA is subject to company regulations, policies, and procedures. Additional information regarding our contractual cabin jumpseat (CJA) privileges can be found in Section 3.A of our JCBA.
