- Crew Notification Now on CCI – LAA
Secondary Vacation Bidding Reminder – LAA
The deadline for secondary/unselected (VX) vacation bidding window is fast approaching. Bidding closes tomorrow, Wednesday, March 23 at 0900 Central Time.
If you are trying to determine how many weeks to bid based on the number of days you have remaining in the secondary round use the following chart:
If you passed in the primary round or were a no bid or not enough bid in the primary round and you accrued 19 or more days of vacation, you still have the ability to submit a primary and secondary ballot during the secondary vacation bidding period. See the vacation bidding information posted on the Crew Resources page of Jetnet for full details.
Crew Notification Now on CCI – LAA
In addition to standard email notices and the opt-in text notifications already in place for legacy American crew members, sequence change notifications are now sent directly to the CCI (Crew Check-In) application on Flight Attendant tablets. The same feature can also be accessed on personal devices when downloading a new version of mobile CCI, available from the Flight Service website.
The three systems do not alter existing schedule change notification procedures. Crew Scheduling will continue to call Flight Attendants to confirm sequence changes resulting from cancellations or other irregular operations (IROPS).
The automated notifications provide Flight Attendants with advance notice that something about their sequence has changed, and directs crewmembers to CCI to view updated information about immediate or upcoming trips. The tools are intended to reduce waiting time when calling Crew Scheduling, and strengthen overall communication regarding sequence updates.
Features of Automated Crew Scheduling Notification Systems
The CCI sequence change notification feature is now on tablets, and available for download to Android devices. The ability to download on iOS systems (Apple devices) is coming soon.
To download the most recent version of mobile CCI from the Flight Service website:
- Access Tools & Links from left-hand menu
- Under SABRE HELP AND LINKS – Select mobileCCI
- Follow steps to update mobile CCI on your device
You can opt in for SMS/Text Messsage notification from your ACCOUNT section on the Flight Service site. Scroll down to Crew Notifications section and select Add/Update Subscription Preferences. Requires IE9 or higher, FireFox or Chrome browser.
Sequence change notification is currently available to legacy American crewmembers. The feature will be available to legacy US Airways crewmembers when Flight Operations Integration (FOI) is complete.
