LAA

The LAA On-Duty Contract Guide is an important resource for LAA Flight Attendants during Irregular Operations (IROPS)/Off-Schedule Operations (OSO). Also, please refer to your tablet or the APFA Website for Interim Pay Protection (IPP) procedures.

LUS

LUS Flight Attendants should be familiar with Sections 1011, and 12 of the 2013 Red Book Agreement during Irregular Operations. Also, please be aware of the Inclement Weather Policy:

Prior to a predicted severe weather event, Flight Attendants should make every effort to plan ahead and determine the best method for getting to work. Should the Flight Attendant be unable to drive to work due to hazardous road conditions, he/she will notify Crew Scheduling and a Personal Day will be noted on the Flight Attendant’s record. The Flight Attendant is then required to contact his/her Flight Service Manager to advise of the Personal Day. If the day was determined to be a qualifying severe disruption day at the base, the Flight Service Manager will change the day from Personal to Unable to Commute and a notation as to the reason for the Unable to Commute will be made.
       
Please Note: Failure to contact the Flight Service Manager prior to the last day of the month will result in the Personal Day remaining on the Flight Attendant’s record.

Please be alert to changing conditions and stay safe!
