Trending FAQs on Rescheduling & Pay Protection
A: The following chart includes a description of trip removal codes and which ones are pay protected under the rescheduling and pay protection provisions in the JCBA:
Q:My trip cancelled and Crew Scheduling didn’t call me. What is my responsibility?
A: If you have left your residence and it is within 3 hours of your report, contact Crew Scheduling for your 3 hours of call-out pay. There is no further obligation to contact Crew Scheduling.
A: When Location Delay Incentive was implemented in early 2015, the Company agreed to pay the incentive on top of the pay protections due to the length of time it would take to program this provision. This provision is now programmed, and it reverts to the contractual language in JCBA Section Section 14M.7.
Example: Flight Attendant Ruiz has a 15:00 hour IPD sequence Monday-Wednesday and a 15:00 hour IPD sequence Thursday-Saturday. The first sequence experiences a delay, now returning on Thursday. He is removed from the second IPD sequence and pay protected. While he did receive the appropriate Location Delay Incentive (LE) pay, he will be pay protected for the total value of the 2 sequences which would result in 30:00 hours of total pay.
A: If all legs cancelled and you were not rescheduled, you would receive 3 hours of call-out pay or the duty rig, whichever is greater. In this case, you were at the airport for 8 hours before the entire sequence cancelled. You would receive 4 hours of VE pay in addition to 4 hours duty rig (1:2). If you were pay protected for this sequence, you would receive the pay protection plus 4 hours of VE pay.
A: If only the first leg cancelled, but Crew Scheduling removed you with an XP from the remainder of the sequence, you would receive pay protection for your trip plus any VE pay generated. In this case, based on an 8 hour duty day, 4 hours of VE pay was generated. Any call-out pay would be absorbed in the sequence protection.
As a reminder, Flight Attendants have until June 1st, 2018 to decide whether they will accept the advance from the Company on the July mid-month paycheck. If you have not received your consent form through your AA.com address, please contact the Payroll Service Center at PSC@aa.com.
If you currently have an active 401(k) loan and your July 16th paycheck does not cover the scheduled repayment, please reach out to the AA Call Center at Fidelity to discuss your options for keeping your loan on schedule. They can be reached at (800) 354-3412.
Also, if your mid-month paycheck does not cover your dues check-off, APFA will send you an invoice unless you make payment arrangements by contacting the dues department at firstname.lastname@example.org or 817-540-0108 ext. 8151.
