December 2015 Domicile Transfer Openings

Prior to awarding new hire Flight Attendant bases, the following base openings are being posted effective December 2, 2015.

Depending on the number of Flight Attendants that elect to transfer, positions may need to be back-filled as a result of the bid.

ALL requests must be submitted electronically via Wings.

All transfer requests will remain on file until either awarded or retracted. If you no longer are interested in a base transfer and have a transfer request on file, that request should be retracted.

Flight Attendants wishing to change their domicile must submit a transfer form via WINGS by 0900 MST and 1200 EDT, Wednesday, October 14, 2015. The awards will be posted no later than Thursday, October 15, 2015. It is NOT necessary to bid all bases when submitting a transfer request.

Wings Foundation Gently Used Uniforms in PHX

The Wings Foundation is a non-profit organization, formed & managed by American Airlines Flight Attendants (LAA & LUS). Volunteers administer support to AA Flight Attendants applying for assistance who are in critical need of financial help. Assistance may be available to those experiencing serious illness, injury or disability. It may also include those affected by a disaster or catastrophic event which ultimately causes a major financial hardship.

The Phoenix WINGS Wear Gently Used Uniforms store will be open at the US Airways Flight Training Center located at 1950 E. Buckeye Road, Phoenix, AZ 85034 on the following dates:

  • Thursday, October 8 … Noon-5:00pm*
  • Friday, October 16 … 9:00am-1:00pm*
  • Wednesday, October 21 … 11:00am-3:00pm*
     

* Store hours are subject to change, due to unforeseen scheduling situations with volunteers. Additional days and times may be added. Visit our website at wingsfoundation.com, and click on the Flight Wear Exchange Program link shown below for the latest store hours.

Also available at the gently used uniform store are nostalgic collectible items including: American Airlines vintage tapestries, playing cards, cookbooks, TSA approved corkscrews, 9/11 pins, stylus flashlight pens, and many other airline-related items.

Voluntary Insurance Program Offered by APFA 

APFA members will have an additional opportunity to enroll in a new voluntary insurance program. The products being offered to APFA members by Union Benefit Planners (UBP) for 2016 are:

  • Short-Term Disability Insurance
  • Universal Life Insurance with Long-Term Care
  • Critical Illness Insurance
  • Accident Insurance

These voluntary coverage options are not associated with American Airlines or AA Added Benefits. This year, there will be no medical questions required to enroll in the Short-Term Disability Insurance, Critical Illness Insurance or Accident Insurance. These are individual policies that are portable, therefore, they are not linked to AA automatic payroll deduction. Even if your employment with American Airlines ends, these policies will continue as long as you continue to pay the premiums.

Beginning on Monday, October 12, click on the following link to enroll: 

https://uenroll.net/AssociationProfessionalFlightAttendantsOE15
The above link to the enrollment site will not be active until Monday, October 12.

Pricing for all insurance options will be available on Monday, October 12. (Prices vary depending on age.)

Members who are interested in the voluntary options from UBP can also call 855-874-0236 to enroll. 

Enrollment Counselors from Union Benefits Planners will be in the PHX Check-in Room between October 12-23 from 5am until Noon and 3pm until 7pm each day to assist APFA members with AA Benefits and offer UBP voluntary coverage options. 

The open enrollment period for these voluntary benefits offered by APFA ends on Friday, October 30.
