Senior Option Applies when Picking up Domestic Purser Position

Date: November 23, 2021

Based on some questions we’ve received in our offices, we understand there is some confusion on filling an open domestic purser position, the ‘A’ position, when it has been picked up from open time. When a Flight Attendant, either a Reserve on days off or a lineholder, picks up a Domestic Purser position from open time, the position is considered “open”. At briefing, a more senior Flight Attendant may, at their option, senior opt the Flight Attendant who picked up the pairing.

This provision applies only in the case of the Domestic Purser position. All other positions that have been picked up by a lienholder or by a Reserve Flight Attendant on days off are not subject to the seniority option and may be traded when mutually agreed upon.

As a reminder when trading positions, time permitting, Flight Attendants should contact the Crew Desk to update the pairing to ensure the application of any applicable pay components associated with the position.
