Staffing Changes on IPD Flights on the 787-9 and 777-200 – LAA
APFA recognizes the challenges many of you have endured with staffing levels on IPD trips flown on the 787-9.
Thanks to your feedback and continued participation in time studies of the extra workload associated with the plating of Business Class entrees, increased main cabin seats, single cavity ovens, new dishes, galley packing and cart construction (just to name a few), the Company has agreed to increase staffing from 9 to 10 Flight Attendants on the 787-9.
By identifying the need for an additional Flight Attendant, both from a safety and a level of service perspective, APFA was able to secure this much needed change in staffing.
Effective with the February bid month, the number 10 position will be assigned to work main cabin aisle on this aircraft. Flights scheduled with a duty day exceeding 18 hours will continue to be staffed with 11 Flight Attendants as is currently done today.
Due to the completion of the retrofit of the 777-200s from a 3-class configuration to a 2-class configuration, staffing will be reduced from 11 to 10 Flight Attendants effective with the March bid month.
As with the 787-9, flights scheduled with a duty day exceeding 18 hours will continue to be staffed with 11 Flight Attendants on the 2-class configuration of the 777-200.
The station assignment charts and service flow diagrams for both aircraft will be updated in the Flight Attendant tablet on February 1 and March 1, 2018.
