Q: When will I receive a printed copy of the JCBA?

APFA Q&A Page on Facebook
APFA has opened a Q&A page on Facebook for active American Airlines Flight Attendants to pose questions about our contract. Once you click to join, members will be verified against the current LAA and LUS rosters. There are specific guidelines that must be followed on the page in order to foster a productive experience for Flight Attendants to gather and share information. Please review the guidelines carefully before posting.

Representatives will be available to answer questions from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. central time M-F (excluding staff holidays). Also, if your Facebook username is different than your name as written on your airline ID badge, please check your FB inbox or “other inbox” for a message from one of the group admins requesting verification.

LUS
Q:  How do I trade my vacation days now with PBS?

FACT: You can trade Vacations through ETB or in writing submitted to your Supervisor prior to the 8th of the month prior. (See RedBook Page 8-10 and JCBA Section 8.I – Vacation Trades).

LAA
Q: When can we expect to find out the Reserve numbers for the combined International and Domestic bases starting in May?

FACT: The numbers for the combined operation Reserve list in MAY 2015 will be released the month prior to the bid month. Currently, there is no way of calculating the Reserves for May, or how many will transfer into each base or what flying will be on the bid sheet. However, the company has informed APFA that it does not anticipate an increase or decrease in Reserve numbers for the combined operations.

LUS
Q: How do I go on the Bid Sheet now? I used to just call scheduling.

FACT: Two Days prior to the day you want to go on the Bid Sheet (ISAP/AIL) put your choices in ISAP. Make sure you click YES on Pass to Daily. This will pass you to Daily if you do not get your choices in ISAP and do not have a Pairing on your Line for that day. You can also call scheduling to be put on the Unsuccessful Bidders List (UBL), but you will go on the bottom the first pass through. (See RedBook Page 10-28 and JCBA Section 10.F.1 TTS Unsuccessful Bidders List).

LAA
Primary Vacation awards are posted for LAA. Check your HI10. LAA FAs can click the link to Flight Service below to access the VC Award summary showing the most junior person holding VC at your combined base as well as available secondary VC slots. Secondary VC bidding is now open and will close on March 23 at 9:00 Central Time.

LUS
Q:  I thought all positions were protected whether they were awarded through PBS, ISAP, or ETB. Why aren’t they?

FACT: For DCA, CLT, and PHL, only the Pairings you were awarded in PBS are protected, the others (ETB, ISAP) are only position holders. For PHX, no matter where you got the Pairing, you own the position (See RedBook page 10-51 and JCBA Section 10.S Flight Attendant Positions).
