Crew Meals – LUS
Flight Attendant crew meals will be provided when the total block hours for the day is scheduled to be 8.01 hours or greater. In addition, Flight Attendant crew meals will be provided when working a Transoceanic International (TI) flight. Such meals will be the same as those provided to the Pilots working the flight.
Flight Attendant monthly crew meal schedules are located on Wings under the heading Home > Workgroups > Flight Service > Bidding
Should you not receive a meal prior to departure, contact Flight Service Daily Operations immediately at 888-222-4737 (available 24 hours a day). They will take the key information such as date, flight number, city pair and crew member information. This team will then coordinate with the local catering department to arrange a meal at the scheduled or a down-line station.
In a case where you are not provided with a scheduled crew meal and Flight Service Daily Operations is not able to arrange one, you are permitted to secure food from an alternative food provider (airport vendor) that day for reimbursement. Submit the receipt for reimbursement to Flight Service for actual, reasonable meal expenses.
