High Time Flyer – Recovery of Involuntary Loss of Time

APFA/AAL Collective Bargaining Agreement

EFFECTIVE 0300 CENTRAL STANDARD TIME ON DECEMBER 4TH, 2002, AFTER HAVING BEEN RELEASED BY THE COMPANY FROM ANY FURTHER OBLIGATION FOLLOWING AN INVOLUNTARY LOSS OF TIME AT SEQUENCE ORIGINATION, IF YOUR PAY PROJECTION /PPROJ/ IS AT OR ABOVE THE MONTHLY MAXIMUM; YOU HAVE THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS:

1. FLY OUT THE BALANCE OF YOUR MONTHLY SCHEDULE, OR

2. IN ADDITION TO FLYING OUT THE BALANCE OF YOUR MONTHLY SCHEDULE YOU MAY HAVE THE DAYS YOU WERE ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED TO FLY CONVERTED TO AVAILABLE DAYS. THESE AVAILABLE DAYS WILL BE INDICATED ON YOUR SCHEDULE AS /HVBL/.

INVOLUNTARY LOSS OF TIME SHALL INCLUDE MISCONNECT, ILLEGALITY, CANCELLATION, SCHEDULE CHANGE AND SCHEDULE CONFLICT. REMOVAL FROM A FLIGHT DUE TO A LACK OF QUALIFICATION AND/OR REDUCED MANNING AS A RESULT OF A SUBSTITUTION OF EQUIPMENT SHALL ALSO BE CONSIDERED AN ILLEGALITY.

HVBL DAYS WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE PLACED ON THE DAYS YOU WERE ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED TO FLY. YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY OBLIGATION TO FLY ON THOSE HVBL DAYS AND THE COMPANY MAY NOT SCHEDULE ANY FLYING ON THOSE DAYS. IF YOU DO NOT WANT THE HVBL DAYS OR YOU WISH TO MOVE THEM TO OTHER OPEN DAYS ON YOUR SCHEDULE, CALL OR SEND A HISEND MESSAGE TO YOUR LOCAL BASE CREW SCHEDULER ADVISING OF YOUR OPTION. IF YOU CHOOSE TO MOVE THE DAYS, THE HVBL DAYS DO NOT HAVE TO BE CONSECUTIVE.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO HAVE THE DAYS YOU WERE ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED TO FLY CONVERTED TO HVBL DAYS, IN ADDITION TO ANY CALL OUT PAY YOU RECEIVE FOR NOT PERFORMING ANY FLYING, YOU MAY RECOVER THE ORIGINAL TIME LOST PLUS 1 HOUR.

EXAMPLE – YOU SIGN IN FOR A 3-DAY/16 HOUR TRIP SEQUENCE WHICH CANCELS AND YOU ARE RELEASED BY THE COMPANY, AT THIS TIME AND PRIOR TO ANY CALL OUT PAY YOUR PAY PROJECTION /PPROJ/ IS 85 HOURS. YOU WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO RECOVER 17 HOURS – THE ORIGINAL 16 HOURS PLUS 1 HOUR.

ONCE THE HVBL DAYS ARE ON YOUR SCHEDULE YOU MAY PRE PLOT OR SELF-PLOT IN PERSONAL MODE /HIPLOT/ OR THROUGH AVRS, BASED ON THE RULES FOR AVAILABLE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS. YOU MAY PRE-PLOT UP TO 24 HOURS PRIOR TO THE HVBL DAY AND YOU MAY SELF-PLOT ON THE DAY PRIOR TO THE HVBL DAY FROM 0500 TO 1200 LOCAL BASE TIME.

REMEMBER, THE COMPANY MAY NOT ASSIGN YOU ANY FLYING ON THE HVBL DAYS, IT IS ENTIRELY YOUR OPTION.
