November LRD Now Open
The Lineholder/Reserve Designator (LRD) to preference either Lineholder or “Senior Bumping” onto Reserve opened today at 1200 (CDT). If you believe your status is not correct, please contact the base planners at FA.firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you log onto the Crew Portal, you will see the LRD in the bottom right hand corner of the page. You will either be in Lineholder or Reserve status in LRD. The LRD will also show your seniority for the group you are associated with.
It is important to remember, if you are satisfied with your designated status shown when LRD opens, it is not necessary to use the toggle on the LRD Tool. If you would like to be on Reserve (Senior Bump) you would toggle over to Reserve. Keep in mind that if you have more than three (3) days of vacation and Senior Bump onto Reserve, it will not count towards your Reserve obligation. This LRD Tool PowerPoint Presentation will provide you with more information and examples regarding the LRD tool.
