APFA Hotline Update – AM/PM Base Brief Correction – October 28, 2013
Some of you may have recently received an APFA base brief in your flight service operations mailbox that contained an error relating to AM/PM instructions. APFA wanted to ensure this information was corrected as soon as possible. Please ensure your copy of the base brief indicates that “Crew Scheduling may contact you two hours prior to the beginning of your period of AM/PM availability with an assignment but such assignment must sign-in within your obligation period.”
The complete and accurate base brief language is below:
Daily ballots are submitted for next-day coverage via the Flight Service website. For example, if you wish to submit a bid for AM/PM on October 3rd, you would submit your ballot on October 2nd. AM/PM awards will be processed manually until AA’s computers can be programmed to accommodate this new procedure system wide.
It is important to note that when AM is awarded, the tape states simply that the FA is released until 2358. This does not mean the FA is released for the entire day. It means that the FA is released from 1300-2358 (due to the AM period of availability). Crew Scheduling may contact you two hours prior to the beginning of your period of AM/PM availability with an assignment but such assignment must sign-in within your obligation period. For more information, visit the APFA Scheduling Department page.
