Hello PHL,

Are You Dues Current in Order To Vote?

As we enter this critical phase in negotiations, it is imperative that all members are in good standing. You must be an active member in good standing to participate in Union activities such as voting. 

You must log into APFA.org to see your balance. To log in, select ‘Log In’ from the right corner. Log in using your employee number and password (if you don’t remember your password or you have not yet set one, select ‘Forgot Password’). We must have a valid personal email address on file (AA Email is not allowed) for your account to be active. If you do not have an email address on file or if the email address is incorrect, please email [email protected].

Please make sure that APFA has your most updated contact information. Click ‘Update Information‘ to update your information in ‘My Account‘.


On June 3, we had our monthly allocations and staffing call. We reviewed the information for the July bidding month. Our PHL flying hours are slightly reduced by 1,456 hours. Our Reserve percentage remains relatively low at 19.8% compared to 21.1% in 2022.

Our available headcount is 2,332 Flight Attendants, with 462 expected to be on Reserve. The opening line average is 82.3 hours which we expect to change based on bidding behavior.

Please join us in welcoming 23 New Hires to PHL. Twelve of those will be able to bid in PBS for their July schedules, with an additional eleven assigned a Reserve line when they graduate.

July 2023 Bidding Timeline

Incentive Point

The upcoming critical period is from July 1-7. Remember these dates if you would like to earn an Incentive Point by working on all your operational assignments during this period. Per the Attendance and Performance Policy, an additional point will be added for a sick call during a critical period unless the sick is a result of a medical leave of absence approved before the bidding period for the critical period.
