With Winter Storm Grayson visiting the East Coast, please re-familiarize yourself with the following procedures:
Interim Sequence Pay Protection Procedures can be found in the On-duty Contract Guide on your tablet or on the Scheduling Department Page on the APFA website.
Key points to remember:
- You must be on the MU list on ALL days originally scheduled to fly, regardless of legalities or airport status
- You must participate in the HISEND MU Round for each day originally scheduled to fly (HISENDS must be sent the day before prior to 1159)
- If your trip was scheduled to terminate after midnight (including debrief), that is a day originally scheduled to fly and your name must be on the MU list for that day as well.
- Make sure you are using the appropriate 2-digit form:
LUS still operates under Section 10 of the Red Book for Scheduling and Rescheduling. Please familiarize yourself with Section 10.J, Rescheduling.
Rescheduling is broken down into three main categories:
10.J.2: Prior to Report Time
10.J.3: After Report but prior to Pairing’s Origination
10.J.4: After Origination (Departure of First Flight)
If you find yourself being rescheduled, please reference the appropriate section above. Red Book section 10.U.5 states that any rescheduling must come from Crew Scheduling, Inflight Management, or the Captain.
