2021 Reserve Christmas Wish List Wrap Up

Date: December 28, 2021

A total of 738 Reserve Christmas Wish List (RCWL) requests were awarded to Reserves during the designated 2021 Christmas Wish List period.

It goes without saying that none of this would be possible but for those behind the scenes who made the granting of these requests possible.  Christopher Lee, our AFA International IT Director and United Flight Attendant, played a vital role to ensure the Wish List programing was up to date and Flight Attendant records were correctly uploaded.

Thanks to last minute efforts by Christopher Lee, this year we were also able to include our newest Flight Attendants who reported to their domicile between December 1st and December 21st.

In addition, we acknowledge the commitment of Crew Scheduling personnel who manually reviewed and assigned the RCWL requests that were awarded system wide as detailed in the following breakdown by location:

The ability to award Christmas Wish List requests is directly tied to the number of multi-day pairings in Open Time that are available during the RCWL period at each location and the number of legal and available Reserves who submitted matching requests.

It should not surprise us that those locations having a greater percentage of one day (turn) flying are not included in this list because RCWL is limited to evaluating layovers only.

We also express our appreciation to our MEC Reserve Committee for the ongoing work in monitoring the Reserve assignment process during this period of time and for being available to support the process and address any issues or questions which arose during the days preceding, following and on Christmas day.
