Crew Rest In Effect Monday, February 23, 2015 – email@example.com
JCBA Implementation continues and with that, we have secured another date for Crew Rest on flights of 7 hours and longer. Effective February 23, 2015, Flight Attendants will be afforded crew rest seats or bunks, in accordance with JCBA Section 38.B. LUS remains status quo.
On the 767 aircraft, seats 17AB and 17HJ will be removed from the seat map and used for crew rest.
On flights over seven (7) but fewer than eight (8) block hours, seats 36DEF will be removed from the seat map and used for crew rest.
On flights eight (8) hours and longer, seats 35DEF and 36DEF will be removed from the seat map and used for crew rest.
In the event one (1) or more crew rest seats on the 767 or 757 aircraft are inoperative due to a significant malfunction, one (1) Main Cabin seat will be provided on a one-for-one basis for each crew rest seat that’s unusable.
777 and 787 Aircraft
These aircraft are equipped with crew bunks. Should one or more of the bunks be inoperative as a result of a significant malfunction, the following procedures apply:
- On flights between seven (7) and ten (10) block hours, one Main Cabin seat will be provided for each crew rest seat that’s inoperable.
- On 777 and 787 flights over ten (10) block hours:
- One (1) Business Class seat will be provided on a one-for-one basis for each bunk that’s inoperable or;
- If no Business Class seats are available, then a Main Cabin Extra seats will be provided or;
- If no Main Cabin Extra seats are available, then a Main Cabin seat will be provided.
NOTE: If a flight qualifies for crew rest in one direction, Flight Attendants will get crew rest in the opposite direction as well, even if block time is less than 7 hours. On 757 flights, the number of rest seats allocated depends on each segment’s individual scheduled block time.
