July 4th Independence Day – A Contractual Holiday for all U.S. bases and Guam

Date: June 24, 2022

We remind everyone of the upcoming Contractual holiday as set forth in Section 2.Q. of our Contract for all U.S. bases and Guam. Flight Attendants receive additional pay for flight assignments flown on designated holidays.

Holiday Pay is calculated using a formula that considers the number of credited hours flown on the holiday and the number of hours away from home during the pairing as outlined in Section 4.I of our Contract. 

Section 2.Q.2. of our Contract specifies that each Flight Attendant is eligible to be paid for a maximum of five (5) holidays per year. When picking up trips out of base, holiday pay is associated with the holidays applicable for the country of the domicile in which the pairing is picked up and is paid as if the Flight Attendant were based at the domicile where the pairing originates.

Flight Attendants scheduled to attend any training or meeting on a holiday shall receive holiday pay pursuant to Sections 4.I.1 & 2.

Note: Premium pay is not included when determining holiday pay. Time away from home begins at the check-in time of the pairing and ends at the conclusion of the scheduled debriefing time upon return to the home domicile.

For more information and questions regarding pay, please review the Pay Flight Attendant Guide on Flying Together.
