Required Coverage (CN), also referred to as forced coverage, is a term applied to date(s) in a bid month that occur when not enough Flight Attendants bid to fly on those date(s). At that seniority and below, awarding is altered to maintain legalities and award pairings that touch the required coverage dates. If by layer 7, your pairing pools do not include adequate pairings that touch a required coverage date, PBS will be forced to award from outside your layers and assign a pairing without regard for your pairing or line preferences.

If your seniority requires coverage on particular dates, you may be awarded a pairing based on legalities, line parameters, and available pairings. PBS will first look to your bid for pairings that cover the CN dates. For those Flight Attendants with multiple CN dates, please keep in mind that trips/reserve days may not have been assigned on each day coverage was required due to legalities (i.e., 24/7).

Here are the Required Coverage/Coverage Needed (CN) Dates and Seniority Dates for the February 2017 PBS Bid Award in YY/MM/DD format:
