Happy July and Welcome to Monsoon Season in PHX!

Robin and I, will be in DFW on July 15-18 for the Board of Directors Meeting. If you need any assistance during this time, please call the local APFA office at 480-966-1231, select option 0.  Please leave a message, and someone will call you back. Thanks for your understanding of our absence.

Please review the following hot topics and know your contract. With weather affecting our PHX base, it is imperative to know your contractual language:

Domestic and NTI On-Board Requirements

Section 11.N.
A Flight Attendant will be required to be on board the aircraft ready to receive passengers thirty(30) minutes prior to scheduled departure, with the following exceptions:

1. On a domestic departure on an aircraft of one hundred sixty-five (165) or more passenger seats, a Flight Attendant will be required to be on board the aircraft ready to receive passengers thirty-five (35) minutes prior to scheduled departure.

2. On a Non-Transoceanic International departure, a Flight Attendant will be required to be on board the aircraft ready to receive passengers forty-five (45) minutes prior to scheduled departure.

Domestic and NTI Home Domicile Rest

Section 11.I.
A Flight Attendant shall be scheduled for no less than ten (10) hours rest (calculated from release from duty to report for duty) at her/his home domicile, which in actual operations, at her/his options, may be reduced to eight (8) hours subject to the applicable Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs).

Interpretation: If you opt out of doing your trip, you will only be pay guaranteed if the home domicile rest is less than 8 hours. You may waive off the trip if your home domicile rest is between 8-10 hours but you will not be pay guaranteed.

Illegal Through No Fault

Section 11K – Domestic Flight Segment Limits and Patterns Scheduled within a Sequence
1.  If, after the time of award, a Flight Attendant becomes illegal (contractual or FAR) through no fault of her/his own to originate her/his pairing, such Flight Attendant shall have the option of splitting on to the pairing, once she/he becomes legal at the point the pairing passes through her/his domicile. If the pairing does not pass through the Flight Attendant’s domicile, she/he will be permitted to pick up the pairing at the point where she/he becomes legal. However, if it is impractical for the Company to split the Flight Attendant onto the pairing, the Flight Attendant shall be released from the pairing and paid the value of the originally scheduled pairing. To receive pay protections under this paragraph, the Flight Attendant must be FAR illegal.Domestic and NTI Block and Duty Limitations
