6.05.21 – APFA PHL Base Brief – July 2021 Allocations/AMS/Employee Parking

Saturday, June 5, 2021

  • Allocations
  • Amsterdam COVID Testing
  • Update on PHL Employee Parking


Philadelphia Flight Attendants,


Our allocations for July are on par with what we have seen for June as far as trip construction. Sit times are not nearly has long as we have seen. We will still be operating DUB, LHR, and AMS for July as well as some wide body domestic flying. We did lose about 4,300 block hours for July, which would account for an increase in Reserve numbers. The Company did offer vacation buyback in all bases to all who balloted for it. In PHL we had 27 people who balloted for vacation buyback.

Below is all the staffing and allocations information:

The system line average is projected at 84.9 and the Reserve percentage systemwide to 21.8%.

Our total block hours for July are 117,589 with 5,028 in PIT. We had 121,896 total block hours for June.

Amsterdam COVID Testing

Effective immediately, the Netherlands has lifted their negative COVID test requirements to enter the country. AMS crews will no longer be tested prior to departure.

Update on PHL Employee Parking

The Philadelphia Parking Authority has realized their plan for employee parking is not feasible. Flight Service communicated in a mobile CCI message that employees will be returning to the Bartram and Cargo City employee lots later this summer.

In Solidarity,
