May PBS Bidding: Non-Schedule Lineholder (NSL)
I am scheduled to be a lineholder bidding in PBS. Is there a possibility that I could end up as a Non-Schedule Lineholder (NSL)?
Yes, while processing the bids in PBS, if there is an issue achieving the line average, there might be a need to increase the number of NSL Flight Attendants. If that is the case, the most senior Flight Attendant will be moved to an NSL. Note: If you opted-in to bidding in PBS, you will not be removed from PBS and treated as an NSL.
From the initial list on Jetnet, I am NSL for May. Do I need to do anything in PBS or should I just leave it alone?
You do not have to do anything in PBS since all NSLs will have been removed from the PBS bidding pool. Prior to the first TTS run on April 24th at 2300 HBT, those Flight Attendants that are considered NSL will have their schedule adjusted up to 70 hours pay and credit. No action is required on the part of the Flight Attendant.
I am NSL for May and I have existing credit from a carry-over, will the carry-over be in addition to the 70 hours pay and credit?
No, your schedule will be adjusted up to 70 hours pay and credit. If you pick up a carry-over after PBS has been awarded the time will be in addition to the 70 hours.
PBS will close for bidding today, April 18th at Noon (CDT). PBS awards will be posted in PBS on Tuesday, April 21st at Noon (CDT).
