January 2021 Allocations

Philadelphia Flight Attendants,

Our January allocations are a slight improvement over what we have seen in October and November but do not get too excited; they still are not great. The Company did not mix wide-body and narrow-body flying for January. Additionally, we do not have as many DFW and ORD turns as we have had. PHL will not have any IPD flying, and our sit times are still high.

We had our staffing call, which was not too surprising. January is historically a higher reserve number month to protect the first week. With the furloughs, the leaves, and rotation, PHL will see reserve for January back to June of 1987.

The system line average is projected at 83.4, which raises the Reserve percentage systemwide to 24.7%. Last January, we had a system line average of 77.0 and a reserve percentage of 24.8%.

We do have a slight decrease in block hours for January; our total block hours are 48,075 with 3,799 in PIT. We had 48,620 total block hours for December. The Company is not offering any VLOA’s.

Below are the preliminary numbers for January:

In Solidarity,

Kim Kaswinkel
APFA PHL Base President

Tracey Montanari
APFA PHL Base Vice President

Please remember, we have 7,985 involuntarily furloughed Flight Attendants at American Airlines.
