PBS Mock Bidding Open for LUS Flight Attendants – LUS

It’s time to participate in the JCBA PBS mock bid which opened yesterday at 1200 CT.

Please note:
If you accessed the mock bid system prior to June 10, the bid you entered will be deleted. You’ll need to create a new mock bid for this bid period (June 10 – 16) or participate in mock bid #2 which opens June 20th at 1200 CT.

The Training Bidding System (TBS) mock bidding is now closed. The TBS bid you input into the mock system will be different than your current TBS bid in the live system.

Lineholder/Reserve Designator(LRD) mock bidding is now closed and mock data results have been posted.

Why should you mock bid when you already know PBS?
Whether you’re junior or senior, lineholder or reserve, you’re sure to learn something new with JCBA PBS. Here are a few changes that you’ll see:

  • Pairing details are now in station time
  • New properties
  • New dashboard information
  • LRD –  lineholder/reserve designator tool
  • Completely new reserve bidding logic
  • Completely new way for speakers to bid for their lines
  • Different aircraft sorting
  • Aircraft displays on pairings appear differently
  • Rest and buffer changes
  • Numbered positions

PBS mock bidding for LUS bases will be in June, July, and August for the July, August, and September bid months. Please reference the calendar below for open, close, and award dates for PBS, TBS, and LRD for each mock bid. All open, close, and award times are noon DFW time (CT):

How do I know what positions to bid for?
Reference your IFM Station Assignment Charts for the letter to number conversion. These will be changing in the near future to provide consistency and alignment across all aircraft.
