MIC – MIC Procedures

MIC PROCEEDURES [MIC]
You willfirst need to contact crew schedule when you incur a misconnection, illegality, cancellation (MIC), Article 9.P and Article I.9.P. If you are directed by the scheduler to “put yourself on the “make-up list,” document the name of the scheduler and provide that to the APFA. Then you should tell the scheduler that you would like to protect your guarantee by following the MIC language of the contract. In past contracts, your obligation was fulfilled by going on make-up, but under our current contract, going on the make-up list is an avenue to build your guarantee  back-up but does not protect you in a MIC.

Sequence Origination
If you lose a trip at origination, you must contact crew schedule. You will then be assigned to one
of the following:

1. Deadhead to cover your return flight

2. Airport availability (glorified term for standby). This is for a period of no longer than four hours and begins at the time of your scheduled departure or time of cancellation, whichever is later

3. Rescheduled to another trip

4. Held available for duty on days originally scheduled to fly (DOSTF). You will call the day prior to a day of duty (0800-1200 domestic or 1000- 1200 international) to receive your assignment (if trips are open) or to be released for the day. If you are on a trip sequence during the call-inwindow, you must make contact when your trip arrives. The trips you are given must originate on a day you were originally scheduled to fly but may terminate outside those days. Any assignment may not interfere with a duty-free period or the balance of the month’s schedule.
All of these aforementioned options will automatically protect your guarantee.

5. Released from duty. If you are released, your guarantee will be reduced. If you wish to protect your guarantee, you must ask for “comp days” for an equal number of days as the trip lost. You will use the same call-in times as were mentioned earlier to receive a trip or to be released. If you receive comp days and later decide you don’t care about your guarantee, you do not have to honor them.

Mid-Sequence
If you experience a MIC during the course of a sequence, you must contact crew tracking to see if you will be rescheduled or released. If you happen to be passing through your base when the MIC occurs, you are not necessarily free to go. You would not non-rev home if you had a cancellation in Omaha without talking to tracking. The same applies at your crew base city. Don’t find yourself with a missed trip. If you are rescheduled or
released by crew tracking, your guarantee will be protected with
no further action on your part. Until next month, fly safely.
