Pay Comp Incorrectly Paying Rescheduled Sequences

With the recent onslaught of cancellations and reschedules, we have become increasingly aware of some issues with Pay Comp not paying rescheduled sequences correctly. The problem stems from Crew Tracking not rebuilding and coding sequences correctly. One issue affects a small group of Flight Attendants who had higher time turns and were rescheduled after reporting to work to fly a lower-paying turn and are only being paid for the lower time trip. This is not how our pay protections in the JCBA work. If you are rescheduled to fly something other than your originally scheduled segments, you will be paid for the greater of either your original trip or the rescheduled trip.

What has happened is that the original turn is “auto-cancelled” and coded with an XI. An XI code is not pay protected. The rescheduled turn that the crew is then assigned is added to the HI1 with an RS, and a completely different sequence number on the same date as the XI trip. When the Flight Attendants look at their HI1, they see that they are only being paid for the lower time turn, and the higher time XI cancelled turn shows no pay.

If you were flying turns in June and July and had cancellations and were rescheduled to a lower time turn, here’s what to look for on your HI1. Notice the XI cancellation on the 19th. Then on the 19th, there is an RS with a different sequence number:

If you had any of these trips in June, July, or August, please send a screenshot of your HI1 or activity sheets to, or complete a Rescheduling Issue Report Form on the APFA website.
