7.29.08 – (LAA) – Special APFA News Update

Special APFA News Update for July 29, 2008.

APFA is pleased to announce that, based on the Overage Leave proffer results, none of our members will be furloughed effective August 31, 2008.

This is great news for all APFA members. Results of the Overage Leave proffer will be posted on the Flight Service website. Meantime, Flight Attendants can check their HI10 to see whether or not they were awarded an Overage Leave and the effective dates.

Due to the significant impact of the Voluntary Bridge to Retirement and the strong demand for Overage Leaves, many Flight Attendants were not granted their first choice for Overage Leave. Others were not able to hold any Overage Leave.

No Partnership Flying requests were awarded as the entire overage projected for August 31 was offset by the VBR and the leaves.

There were fewer than 100 full-year leaves awarded system-wide. The combination of the full-year leaves, coupled with the VBRs, satisfied the projected overage for the 12-month period. The remaining leaves awarded allow for increased staffing over the holidays, as well as the projected manning for the period leading up to the summer 2009 schedule.
