Additional Q&A for Interim Pay Protection Implemented 5.02.16

What is not included with Interim Sequence Pay Protection?

  • Same as today, carryover, international override or other premiums are not included
  • Same as today, pay protection for trips originating on reserve days (RF and SB flying) are not included
  • All schedule conflict trip removals, including FA- initiated conflict after bid awards

Can you explain the difference between a MIC (Misconnect /Illegality/Cancellation) and a Schedule Conflict?

A MIC is an illegality that does not exist when the Flight Attendant has received their award or has been scheduled throughout the month, but is generated through subsequent circumstances i.e. weather, mechanical etc. The trip would be covered by the Interim Pay protection if MIC procedures are followed.”

A Schedule Conflict is defined as either a conflict or illegality for the first trip of the month that is created by the bid award. The FA has the option to resolve the Schedule Conflict through trading or dropping either sequence. If no action is taken, 72 hours prior to the new month the first trip of the new month would be automatically be removed. The Interim Pay protection does not apply for the removed sequence.

What is a conflict that the Flight Attendant did not initiate?

This would be the scenario where the Flight Attendant does not have a conflict in the subsequent month, but due to an assignment by Crew Schedule at the end of the current month, a conflict is created in the following month. I.E. Reassignment (RA) Reschedule due to MIC, a reserve assignment or an Availability assignment by Crew Schedule. The removed trip would be covered by the Interim Pay protection if MIC procedures are followed.

What is a FA initiated conflict after bid awards?

This would be a scenario where the Flight Attendant does not have a conflict for the subsequent month, but decides to pick up additional time from the company at the end of the current month and, as a result, the additional flying creates the conflict in the next month. The Flight Attendant does have this option, since current month flying takes precedence over next month flying. The Interim Pay protection would not cover this type of MIC.
