3 day 33.5%
4 day 15.7%
ODAN’s 12.3%

We continue to advocate based on feedback for more 4 days, we will see an increase for November.  We will also see a decrease in ODAN’s, we certainly made our dissatisfaction known about that, this is the lowest percentage we have seen in some time.  The company is going to look at increasing these numbers in December.

When bidding for November, please remember that Daylight Savings Time starts at 2 am on the 3rd and Thanksgiving is on the 28th.  As in years past, you will see a reduction of flights over the Thanksgiving week thus giving longer layover times in some of our destinations.

As a reminder that the 787 is coming to PHL starting in January. The routes will be AMS, MAN, and ZRH. The aircraft will be flying domestically between PHL to DFW and PHL to ORD.

You can ballot for PHL classes only on Jetnet, you can also choose to ballot 787 training on the RBEST dates which are awarded in seniority order.  If an insufficient number of requests are received for training, Flight Attendants may be drafted(assigned) training in reverse seniority order.

In unity,
