JCBA Update – Implementation of JCBA Language on Mid-Range Flying & Per Diem for NIPD/IPD Segments – LAA
Beginning in August, JCBA Section 14.D.2. will be implemented for LAA Flight Attendants introducing a fourth duty type known as “Mid-Range Flying”. Additionally, JCBA Section 4.A.2. will be implemented as it pertains to per diem for NIPD/IPD segments.

Per Diem Expenses
Currently, LAA Flight Attendants are paid international (NIPD/IPD) per diem rates for any sequence containing an international segment. Per the JCBA, per diem rates will be calculated on a leg by leg basis, resulting in different per diem rates for sequences containing a mix of both domestic and international (DOM/NIPD) flying, once the programming takes effect in August.
Exception for IPD sequences
