Happy New Year to Everyone

On behalf of your APFA LGA Base team we would all like to wish you a very Happy New Year. The new year 2019 will bring many changes to the company as well as our base. Raymond Lewis has left LGA as of January 1 and Cathy Ryder will be stepping up as Base President for the remainder of the term which ends March 31. The position of Base Vice President will be filled as per the APFA constitution.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish Raymond the best at his new base. It has been a sincere pleasure working with him side by side, and learning from him. Raymond’s strong leadership, tenacity, and integrity will be missed.

PBS Goes Live in January

Starting with the January bid run American will be implementing PBS at every base in the system, with the exception of DFW and MIA. The Navigation Centers in LGA and JFK operations are there to answer any questions you may have, as well as the FABRC.

If you are happy with your standing bid, please take a screenshot of your standing bid so you can enter it when bidding opens on January 10th, 2019. All current standing bids in mock bidding will be erased on December 31st, 2018.
