LAA / LUS
JCBA Hard copies are now available in the Crew Rooms/Operations area at each base. Don’t forget to pick your copy up and carry it with you always!

LAA / LUS
Q: As of May 2, 2015, if you are on an international sequence with domestic legs, are you paid international pay for entire trip?
A: Please see JCBA Section 3.F – International Pay. International Premium Destination (IPD) sequences with Domestic legs will be paid International premium for the entire sequence. NIPD sequences with Domestic legs will be paid international premium for the NIPD legs, and not the domestic legs.

LUS
Q: At LUS, weekends are no longer restricted or required “touches” but some holidays are.  Which holidays are “protected”?
A: Page 10-27 of Redbook: Holiday Restrictions: Lineholders using ISAP transactions in accordance with this Paragraph to drop a pairing touching a restricted day may only do so subject to the daily and monthly Open Pairing Day Limitations. The Open Pairing Day limitation shall only apply on the restricted holiday and not on any day(s) surrounding the restricted holiday.  For the purposes of this Paragraph, restricted days will include, New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Eve.
 
LAA / LUS
Q: Do we have a time line when the Reserve RAP will be implemented?
A: For LUS Flight Attendants, the RAPs associated with the Red Book started in March 2015. The new RAPs in the JCBA are a Joint Scheduling Implementation Committee (JSIC) priority for LAA Flight Attendants. LUS Flight Attendants will switch to the JCBA language when we have full operational integration (FOI). The Company knows this is a priority for the Flight Attendants and is working on the necessary programming changes. New dates for implementation are added almost weekly. Stay up to date at www.www.apfa.org for implementation dates.
 
LAA
Q: Is it true that in May, an AVBL line will have an 80 hour guarantee?
A: Yes, guarantee for an AVBL line is increased to 80 hours when the Domestic and International operations combine on May 2, 2015 (ODCG p. 3 and p. 26). Guarantee for VC relief lines with a partial AVBL schedule will be increased to 80 hours as well.
 
LAA / LUS
Q: When will the Reserve Rotation in the JCBA be implemented?
A: Per the Implementation Schedule, the Reserve Rotation provision in Section 12.A.3 will not apply for LAA until PBS and for LUS until FOI. Until that time, both LAA and LUS Flight Attendants will continue to operate under the provisions of the current Reserve Rotation.
 
LAA / LUS
Q: In the JCBA, which flights will have a bid Purser position?
A: Please see the JCBA Section 3.C. Domestically, three-class transcons will require a bid Purser position. For International, IPD flights will require a bid Purser position. Currently, IPD stations include all of Europe, Asia, and the following Latin American cities:
