9.05.21 – APFA PHL Base Brief – October 2021 Staffing and Allocations

Sunday, September 5, 2021


The Company has finally taken the feedback from the APFA leadership and made some changes to the trip construction. With some good comes some bad. We are seeing fewer segments in a duty period, longer rest but increased sit times.

We do have domestic wide-body flying for October and a slight increase of ODANs.

PHL will be operating the six-day LHR/SEA trip again for October. As a reminder, this trip does not have a home, and the company will move it to whatever base makes sense and use it to add additional block hours to a base that needs it. ATH and DUB will operate daily, with FCO operating four days a week. AMS will end on October 5th.

Staffing and Allocations Information

The system line average is projected at 82.4. The reserve percentage systemwide is at 16.2%.

We have seen an increase in block hours for October are 113,708 with 4,764 in PIT.  We had 107,698 block hours for September.  The Company will NOT be offering any VLOA’s for PHL.

Below are the preliminary numbers for October:
