When bidding for January please remember the following dates, January 1st, January 20th MLK Day, and Superbowl Weekend.

As a reminder that the 787 is coming to PHL starting in January. The routes will be AMS, MAN, and ZRH. If an insufficient number of requests are received for training, Flight Attendants may be drafted (assigned) training in reverse seniority order.

January 7th marks introduction of the 787 fleet to PHL. The international 787 flying (PHL-AMS, PHL-MAN, and PHL-ZRH) will be crewed by PHL. The domestic 787 flying is allocated on a free flow basis, resulting in the domestic 787 flying to/from PHL being split between DFW, LAX, and PHL crews for January.

When reviewing the staffing on the 787-800 for January, it will be staffed with the FAA minimum which is 8 flight attendants, which is how the company staffs this aircraft on IPD flights.  This is a change for our base as we have always had the additional flight attendant over the FAA minimum.
