Special APFA Hotline – Pilot Retirement Cancellations, February 22, 2008

APFA and the company have reached an understanding to assist FAs who are above guarantee and were affected by the pilot retirement/trip cancellations. There are now two letters protecting the FAs flying the 777 as well as those on the 767 who experienced cancellations as a result of the 777 changes.

Those FAs who were scheduled on cancelled flights due to the pilot retirements may contact Crew Schedule to plot trips in open time that originate in the contractual month of February. FAs may recover the time lost as a result of the cancellation(s) plus one hour. You will also be able to voluntarily substitute PVDs, if at the end of the month you are unable to recoup the hours lost.
