Understanding Furlough Pay

An involuntarily furloughed Flight Attendant, who has completed one year of service, will receive furlough pay based on the average number of hours flown in the twelve full months prior to the furlough date. (JCBA 23.C.13.).

Furlough pay is based on the occupational seniority date (OCC SEN) that can be found on your HI8 in mobileCCI.

The table below is used to calculate the amount of furlough pay. You will receive your first paycheck covering the furlough pay period on October 30, 2020, and subsequent amounts of furlough pay will be split equally between pay periods each month.


The HISK/L screen below, which you can find on Crew Portal > FOS Screens, currently shows hours flown for 2019. Furlough pay be will calculated using the 12-month average of your hours in your PPROJ column for line months and GUAR + FLYDFP column for reserve months.

When looking at Reserve months, you would use the FLYDFP + the GUAR or PPROJ column, whichever is greater. In the example below, the Flight Attendant sat reserve in July and November.

Premiums, such as red flag, lead, galley, purser, speaker, or international overrides will not be calculated into the look back.

You can also calculate your lookback by adding up the total number of “actual hours” at the bottom of your paycheck over the duration of the lookback.
