Flight Attendants are provided hotel rooms under the following circumstances:
- Whenever scheduled at a layover station more than four (4) hours, or
- Whenever delayed at a layover station for fours (4) hours or more from the time the delay is known, or
- After reporting for duty at the home domicile, there is a delay of four (4) hours or more from the time the delay is known.
- Additionally, under the provisions of our negotiated Commuter Program (Section 28.E.5.) lineholder Flight Attendants are provided hotel rooms when commuting by air and receives no immediate assignment or receives an assignment with a report time of more than five (5) hours after the Flight Attendant arrives at her/his Base.
Remember, that the requirement for a hotel room does not apply when there is a “creeping delay,”nor does it apply when a layover of less than four (4) hours is pre-scheduled in a Flight Attendant’s pairing and later becomes a layover of four (4) hours or more as the result of an early arrival of one of the flights in the pairing.
