Trending FAQs on Rescheduling & Pay Protection

 

Q: My Narita trip cancelled after I reported. Am I pay protected?

A: If another crew flew your return flight from Narita, you would be pay protected for your entire trip. If you would like to “double dip” you could pick up a trip from the Company (currently, MU/II/CC for LAA and ISAP/UBL for LUS). If no flight in your sequence operated, you would receive 3 hours call out pay and could go on MU or Hiboard (LAA); or ISAP or ETB (LUS) to pick up time.
Q: I have back to back MIA-MAD trips, Monday-Wednesday and Thursday-Saturday. My first MIA- MAD trip was delayed by one day and arrived on Thursday at 1400. I am FAR illegal for my MIA-MAD that had a 1900 report on the same day I was removed and pay protected. I received 10 hours of Location Delay incentive (LE) for the first trip. How does that affect my pay protection?
A: You will receive the value of your first MAD trip including any trip rig, plus 10 hours LE pay. You will also receive the full value of the 2nd MIA-MAD through illegal through no fault.
Q: I have back to back trips, Monday-Wednesday and Thursday-Saturday. My first DFW- FCO trip was delayed by one day and arrived on Thursday at 1800. I have a direct conflict for my DFW-FRA that had a 1500 report the same day I was removed and pay protected. I received 10 hours of Location Delay incentive for the first trip. How does that affect my pay protection? 
A: You will be paid the combined value of both sequences when there is a direct conflict. With a direct conflict, you will not receive LE pay in addition to the combined value unless the LE pay is greater than the pay protection.
Q: I had a 15-hour, 3-day sequence that was delayed, and I returned a day later at 1000. I now have a direct conflict with my next trip that reported at 0800 that morning and was worth 12 hours. How is my pay protection calculated?

A: You would receive the combined value of the originally scheduled trips because it is a direct conflict. In this example, any time made on the first sequence would be absorbed into the pay protection of the 2nd sequence.

Example: Sequence #1 has an original scheduled value of 15 hours. The actual flight time ends up being 17 hours. Sequence #2 has an original scheduled value of 12 hours. The combined value of both original scheduled sequences is 27 hours. Your pay protection is 10 hours.

Q: I’m DFW based. On the last day of a 3-day trip, I was scheduled to work one leg to DFW, followed by a MSY turn around. When I landed in DFW, I noticed my MSY turn around cancelled. Do I need to call Crew Tracking, or will they contact me?

A: Since your MSY turn around cancelled mid-sequence, Crew Tracking has 3 hours to reschedule you – only to prevent a delay or cancellation. This time starts at the time the disruption is known, not the originally scheduled departure time. If stand-by reserves are available, they would need to be used first. You can call Crew Tracking prior to that time to ask to be released.

APFA Government Affairs Reps Attend AeroClub Meeting

This week, 15 APFA Government Affairs team members attended the AeroClub of Washington D.C. monthly meeting. The AeroClub brings together many stakeholders in the aviation industry, including airlines carriers, unions, plane manufacturers, and trade associations. Over 400 people attended, including representatives from many of our fellow aviation unions. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao was the guest of honor. She spoke to aviation safety, infrastructure and the direction of aviation and the FAA. She also spoke to the advent of drones in the past several years and how we can safely incorporate them in our airspace. The speech was notably short on details and, breaking with tradition, she took no questions.

Secretary Chao also referred to the growing issue of emotional support animals onboard the aircraft. In April, APFA endorsed Senator Burr’s bill that would align the definition of service animals on the airplane with that of the American Disabilities Act (ADA). The FAA Reauthorization Bill that passed the House in April, also contained similar language. At the luncheon, Secretary Chao encouraged aviation stakeholders to comment on this issue between now and July 15th.

2Q18 Executive Committee (EC) MeetingThe 2Q18 EC meeting will take place on August 6 – 7, 2018 at APFA HDQs in the Unity Pays Conference Room from 0900 – 1700. All members in good standing are welcome and encouraged to attend all open portions of the meeting.
