7.13.16 – Bid Sheet Update

Wednesday, July 13, 2016




The company has noticed your APFA DFW Leadership that there will be two (2) significant schedule changes for the contractual month of AUGUST 2016. This will cause the majority of the bid lines to be top heavy with the majority of the flying being flown the first half of the month.

Your DFW Leadership continues to meet with the Company to bring forth your concerns with the Bid Sheet. We have addressed the domestic trip cadence, lack of turns and two day trips, in addition to other quality of work life issues.  

We have requested that LHR lines be built at a 3 day on and 4 day off cadence as much as possible. The preliminary lines provided by the Company have four (4) lines which consist of one (1) back to back LHR pairing. We have requested that no lines be built with back to back LHR parings.


For the month of AUGUST 2016, no lines will be built over 99.00 hours anywhere on the DFW Bid Sheet. Our goal is to keep all lines as “pure” as possible. We met with the APFA Communications Department to devise a poll concerning the 99.00 hour bid line issue. This poll will be COMING SOON to the e-mail you currently have on file with APFA. Please contact our membership department at to update your e-mail and or other member information. Please share this DFW e-mail newsletter with your flying colleagues and make sure they have their correct e-mail address on file.


On July 14, 2016, your DFW Base Reps will be meeting local DFW Flight Service on these issues.


In closing, we have created a “NEW” e-mail specifically for DFW bid sheet issues. Please email all concerns and suggestions regarding the DFW Bid Sheet to
