From the APFA Health Department
When notifying Crew Schedule or Supervisor (FSM) of your absence, you do not have to give a reason or explanation other than the date(s) of your absence from duty. Please do not discuss your personal illness with Crew Schedule or your Supervisor (FSM), doing so is considered self-disclosure.
Did you know??
FAR ILLEGAL (FI) – is if your trip arrives BEFORE your second trip departure, just less than the 8 FAR hours between trips. You are paid what the delayed flight value is worth PLUS the original value of the second trip.
DIRECT CONFLICT (DC) – is when your current sequence is now scheduled to arrive AFTER the report (sign-in) time of your next trip. You will be paid the combined original value of both sequences.
If after your current trip arrives you will now be scheduled to have less than the contractual 11 hours rest but more than the FAR 8 hours rest before the report (sign-in) time of your next second trip, CS will keep you on the trip unless you call them to take you off for your contractual rest. If you do not wish to waive your contractual rest down the FAR, pay protections will not apply.
LAST SEQUENCE LAST SERIES (LS) – You are pay protected if your last series of sequences cancels or if you are illegal to originate your last sequence.
Once you report, if you become illegal to complete your last sequence in its entirety, you may be required to continue to operate the sequence and split off at the latest point you pass through base, if you aren’t scheduled to pass through base you will be split off at the point of illegality. In either case, you will be pay protected for the portion you were illegal to operate.
If the originating leg of your last sequence cancels, you may be required to split on to your sequence. CS must notify you of the request to split on prior to report. If you split back on, a hotel room must be provided if the segment you are splitting on does not originate on the same day. In this case, you will be pay protected for the cancelled segments. If CS does not make a request to split you back on, you will be pay protected for the entire sequence.
FULL SEQ CANCELLATION (XI) – is full sequence cancellation. If none of your segments are flown by a substitute crew, or it is not your last trip or last series of trips, pay protections do not apply.

Post Flight responsibilities: Once we have arrived at the gate and all passengers have deplaned, we still have post-flight responsibilities. If flying the Purser/Lead position, your additional duties require a cabin walk thru-which includes checking seats, overhead bins and closets to ensure no articles have been left behind, checking lavatories for passengers or left items and to ensure that ALL DOOR EXITS are DISARMED.
For additional information on your post – flight responsibilities you can reference the IFM < General Policies and Procedures < Post Flight Duties < Flight Attendant Responsibilities.
