APFA PBS Specialist – LUS

We are pleased to announce that PHX based Flight Attendant Alana Porter has accepted the position of APFA PBS Specialist. Alana’s role will include participating in PBS bid runs, analyzing the bid files from the PBS runs, and working collaboratively with the Flight Attendant Bidding Resource Center (FABRC) to ensure the accuracy of awards.

Alana has been involved with PBS since October of 2014, working as a PBS trainer, and with the FABRC research team. She designed training videos and curriculum for our Flight Attendants, including the PBS refresher WBT. She brings a wealth of knowledge and information about the entire process, including the system logic.

Together with the APFA Contract and Scheduling Departments, Alana will meet regularly with the PBS Administrators and the FABRC to ensure PBS is accurately awarding. Flight Attendants deserve the added accountability that Alana will bring to the process.

Any Flight Attendant who has an inquiry or believes she/he may have received a mis-award for December should notify the Flight Attendant Bidding Resource Center (FABRC) no later than 1200 (MST) tomorrow, or, if on vacation, within twenty-four (24) hours of return from her/his vacation. Even though FABRC is closed on Thanksgiving day, all messages are time-stamped and will be processed.

Holiday Pay Guidelines – LAA/LUS

Per JCBA Section 3.J; in addition to all other compensation, a Flight Attendant working a sequence/pairing or serving Reserve Standby/On Premise Reserve (OPR) duty, which touches a “Compensated Holiday” (i.e., Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and/or New Year’s Day), shall be paid seventy-five dollars ($75.00) per holiday.

* “Standby/OPR” is a Reserve who has been awarded or assigned Standby duty in uniform at the airport without a specific flight assignment for the purpose of covering a sequence/pairing in order to prevent a delay.

General Rules:

  • Flight Attendant must work on the actual holiday to receive Holiday Pay
  • If a Flight Attendant is earning TAFB (Per Diem) on an actual holiday, including during report or debrief, the Flight Attendant will receive Holiday Pay**
  • No Holiday Pay for ready Reserve (on RAP), anyone on planned absence, or full sequence cancellations
