PBS Bidding- Is Your Standing Bid Up to Date?

PBS will open on April 10th for May bidding.  Keep in mind if you use a standing bid you may want to review that bid, as we are adding IPD seasonal flying with several new destinations.  With May bidding we are gaining BUD, PRG, ATH, VCE, and SNN.  We will see the final group of seasonal destinations for June, which will be BLQ, TXL, and DBV.

757 IPD Positions

As a reminder, positions #1 and #3 on the 757 IPD are different working positions as compared to the 767 and A330 IPD.  On the 757, Position #1 is still a Purser, but works BC galley while the #3 works BC aisle.  Please adjust your PBS bids accordingly.

Legality Charts

Legality charts can be found in your tablets in the document library.  Always calculate your duty from release to report for layover rest. For duty day legalities calculate report to release.  You may also refer to Section 11 E, F and G of the JCBA.
