Trending FAQs on Rescheduling & Pay Protection
Q: My Narita trip cancelled after I reported. Am I pay protected?
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.
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.
