Domicile Vacancies for April 2017 – LUS

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 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 12:00 NOON (EST)/10:00 AM (MST), Friday, February 17, 2017. The awards will be posted no later than Monday, February 20, 2017.

Mutual Domicile Transfers – LUS

Mutual Transfers will be processsed following the processing of vacancy transfer requests, if applicable.

The Company will maintain a list of Flight Attendants requesting Mutual Transfers. The requests will be processed in system seniority order.

For Example: 20 PHL Flight Attendants want to transfer to CLT and 35 CLT Flight Attendants want to transfer to PHL. The Company will approve the 20 PHL Flight Attendants and match them to the 20 of the most senior CLT Flight Attendants and swap their bases. The 15 most junior CLT Flight Attendants will be considered in a later month in seniority order of the total requests.

The following are all the possible combinations of base swaps:

  • It is NOT necessary to bid all bases when submitting a transfer request.
  • 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.
