A321 NX Training Bidding Timeline Extended
June 10, 2022
As we prepare for the arrival of a new state of the art aircraft to our ever-expanding fleet, we should all be excited about the opportunities this new aircraft presents our company and our Flight Attendant community. It’s regrettable that the manner in which the differences training is introduced is being accomplished only by incorporating this training into CQ. The result of this decision is that many of us who were expecting to next attend CQ at some points 18 months into the future will now be required to attend CQ on a date much closer in as the exclusive way to become qualified on this new aircraft.
We’ve heard from many of you how disappointed you are at the company’s plan to accomplish this training only by attending and it’s clear that you haven’t received a satisfactory explanation from management as to why this plan for training, as opposed to other potential alternatives, has been selected. Our collective advocacy for management to consider other alternatives continues.
In the meantime, however, that significant number of us affected by management’s decision to incorporate the A321 NX hands-on training program into CQ training should be aware that preference month bidding is now available.
Due to an unanticipated glitch in the preferencing program, the bidding process for this training program has been adjusted with the result being the extension of the bid close deadline to June 23, 2022, at 1200 CST. The revised bidding timeline is as follows:
