Reserve Availability Periods (RAPs): What Are My Responsibilities?

The JCBA has no requirement for Reserve Flight Attendants to live within a certain distance of your base airport. It is important to remember that when on a Reserve Availability Period (RAP), you must be able to report to the airport within two hours (three hours at a co-terminal) from the time you have been notified of a sequence by crew scheduling.

JCBA 12.H.1 states:

The Company is issuing final warnings, and in some cases, terminations for Reserve Flight Attendants who have been unable to report within the two-hour (three hour at a co-terminal) report requirement during their applicable RAP. APFA has vigorously fought these terminations. We want to ensure you are not endangering your employment while serving Reserve. Please ensure that, while on a RAP, you can meet your contractual requirement in Section 12.H.1.

In Solidarity,

Larry Salas
