Winter Storm Uri: Using Vacation for Lost Time

DFW Flight Attendants,

Yesterday, APFA secured a Letter of Agreement which will allow DFW-based Flight Attendants to use vacation to cover lost time due to Winter Storm Uri. Select vacation days may be used for an unprotected full sequence cancellation, a qualifying Unable to Commute event (JCBA 37.I), or a Personal Day (PO) removal/s as a result of the storm. The following vacation days may be used to mitigate the loss of time:

  • Unscheduled 2020/2021 vacation days not used as a result of a Leave of Absence
  • Unused 2020/2021 Filler Days
  • April 2021 scheduled vacation days.


If you allocate seven (7) or more vacation days, those days will pay 4 hours/day. Blocks of six (6) or less vacation days will pay 3.5 hours/day. Both Reserve and Lineholder vacation will be pay and credit. Reserve vacation will be part of the Reserve guarantee.

If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, please email FA.vacations@aa.com no later than March 2, 2021 at 1200 CST.

In Solidarity,

Julie Hedrick
