August 2020 Allocations
Philadelphia Flight Attendants,
For August, PHL has a total of 68,671 block hours, which includes 4,497 for PIT. Last month, we had 60,520 block hours, including 5,425 for PIT.
The flying for August pretty much mirrors July as far as sequence construction. Most of the trips are two days with a max of two legs per day. However, some trips have more than two legs per day. We do have an increase in one-day trips as well as a few more three days. We have a SJU turn returning, along with a few ODANs. We are slowly starting to see some recovery in our domestic flying. We will not see any IPD flying for August.
Bidding for the 70-hour VLOA is now open and will close on Saturday, July 11th at Noon (CDT). You may access the ballot here.
If you are bidding for the 70-hour VLOA, you are requesting a leave and will not be able to pick up carry-over time flying into the leave. If you already have a carry-over trip, that time will be included in your pay and credit of 70 hours. If you have vacation in August, it will be included in your 70-hour VLOA pay.
