PBS Bidding Reminders

Who should bid 7 Layers as a lineholder and 7 layers as a reserve?

The question that many have is why? The Lineholder Reserve Designator (LRD) will process who will be a lineholder or reserve and the result will be displayed in your PBS Dashboard when bidding opens.

Once PBS bidding closes on the 15th, prior to processing the bids if your status was reserve in the PBS dashboard, your reserve status could change to lineholder, should additional lines become available.

NOTE: If your status in the PBS dashboard shows as lineholder, your status may never be changed to reserve.

The following is the priority order of reserves that would be moved to lineholder status on the 15th.

  1. Tentative Flight Attendants who were involuntarily moved to reserve status.
  2. Reserve Flight Attendants who toggled to Pref LH in LRD but were unsuccessful in holding a lineholder status.
  3. Most junior reserve Flight Attendants at the base who may be involuntarily moved to lineholder status after all the above been utilized.
It is important to remember that you may have a standing bid as a lineholder or a reserve.  If you do not add a lineholder bid for the current month, your standing bid will be utilized when your PBS bid is processed.
