Closing of June Training Bidding System (TBS) on the 6th and LRD on the 7th
TBSBidding for June CQ training classes has closed today at noon DFW time. Awards will be available on the 7th. Go back to the TBS system through Crew Portal and select the “Award” tab to view your class.
If you fail to bid or bid insufficiently for your base or grace month, your training is assigned in seniority order with the first available class you are legal for, on the earliest date of the bid month. You will not be able to preference to not attend in your base month and attend in your grace month. Bids are processed in the following order:
On the seventh of every month at 1200 (DFW time) the LRD will close. When you log into Crew Portal you will see the LRD tool in the bottom right-hand corner of the page. You will either be in lineholder, tentative or reserve status in LRD. The LRD will also show your seniority for the group you are associated with.
It is important to remember if you are satisfied with your designated status shown when LRD opens, it is unnecessary to use the toggle on the LRD Tool.
The number of flight attendants in the tentative category will be equal to the number of Voluntary Leave of Absence (VLOA) in your base if VLOAs are offered.
For both lineholder and tentative, the default will always be lineholder status. If you would like to be on reserve (senior bump) you would toggle over to reserve. Keep in mind that if you have more than 3 days of vacation and senior bump onto reserve it will not count towards your reserve obligation.
The LRD will close on the 7th of each month, 1200 DFW time. When PBS opens on the 10th of every month you will see the results of the LRD tool in your PBS dashboard. Please review your status prior to bidding in PBS.
This LRD Tool PowerPoint Presentation will provide you with more information and examples regarding the LRD tool. Should you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us at PBS@apfa.org or reach out to the Flight Attendant Bidding Resource Center (FABRC) at 888-376-5375.In Unity,
