Vacation Bidding Basics

The APFA National Contract & Scheduling Departments have created the following guide to walk you through the basics of vacation bidding. As a reminder, the Primary Round of bidding will close March 3rd at 1200 (CST). If you have any questions regarding your vacation accrual, please email for assistance.

Vacation Bidding Basics

The Flight Attendant Vacation User Guide contains detailed information on the annual vacation bid and award process. Due to the limited number of vacation buybacks awarded this year, you may want to bid more selections that you normally would bid. For general questions about vacation bidding, you may email an APFA Contract and Scheduling Rep. on duty at
