12.27.17 – (LAA) – Pay Protection for Last 5 Days of the Month

Pay Protection for Last 5 Days of the Month (excludes Reserves) – LAA

As a reminder, Flight Attendants should be familiar with the following parameters when looking to pay protect during the last 5 days of the month:

  • Pay protection: After sign in, Crew Schedule has the same options as MIC – deadhead, reschedule, hold at the airport, or release
    • Does not include carry-over time
  • To qualify for pay protection, FA must:
    • Add name to MU list for each DOSTF (day originally scheduled to fly). This includes the original footprint of trip plus 8 hours.
    • Submit a HISEND MU message for each DOSTF. Must include “plot to protect”
    • Participate in each HISEND MU round until obligation is fulfilled – one trip flown will fulfill obligation
    • Obligation extends until the earlier of 8 hours after originally scheduled trip sequence termination or midnight last day of the contractual month (if DOSTF + 8 hours extends past midnight last day of scheduled trip, FA must be on MU list the additional day)
    • FA may opt to participate in subsequent MU/II/CC proffer rounds and will not forfeit protection if FA passes or is unable to be reached at time of proffer
    • See Make-Up HISEND requests on page 25
  • If FA elects to opt out of pay protection: If LO assigned trip for Last 5 Day Pay Protection cancels, FA has no further obligation and pay will be protectedIf LO assigned trip for Last 5 Day Pay Protection cancels, FA has no further obligation and pay will be protected
    • Pay for last trip is forfeited
    • Pay Projection (PPROJ) may be incrementally reduced by the value of the lost trip
  • If LO assigned trip for Last 5 Day Pay Protection cancels, FA has no further obligation and pay will be protected
