Scheduled Into a Flex Day?

Crew Scheduling uses the FG code (Flex/Golden day) to indicate a Flex Day (FD) that a Flight Attendant has been assigned into or flown into in actual operations. This has caused some pay discrepancies. If you were either assigned or flown into a FD due to actual operations, or if you worked on a day off and were not paid per the JCBA, please fill out a Scheduling Systems Issue Report.

To expedite pay, submit a direct connect pay claim on Crew Portal > Links > Direct Connect if you do not see the correct pay within a couple of days following sequence completion.

Reserves Scheduled to Work into Flex Days or Golden Days

If you are assigned into a Flex Day, pay for the sequence is pay and credit. You may have the FD restored at a mutually agreed upon date or choose to be paid the daily rate* as Pay No Credit (PNC). You must advise Crew Scheduling of your selection within 48 hours of your return to base (JCBA 12.D). You do not have to accept an assignment into a FD if you do not have any remaining available days on your schedule to reinstate the day off (JCBA 12.D.3). You cannot be assigned into a Golden Day (GD) (JCBA 12.B.a).

If actual operations cause you to work on a FD or GD, pay for all hours after midnight will be Pay No Credit (PNC). If the actual hours extend past 0100, you may have the day off restored at a mutually agreed upon date or choose to be paid the daily rate*, as Pay No Credit (PNC), in addition to the actual hours flown (JCBA 12.B.2.c and 12.B.4.c). You must advise Crew Scheduling of your selection within 48 hours of your return to base (JCBA 12.D). Regardless of whether you have the day off restored or choose to be paid the daily rate above guarantee, in actual operations, all hours flown on a day off are Pay No Credit (PNC). The sequence details should show “OVRFLY.”

*The Reserve daily rate is paid at 3.56 hours in a 31-day month, and at 4.10 hours in a 30-day month.
