PBS Update

On February 29, a mobileCCI was sent alerting FAs to a change in PBS updating aircraft and removing aircraft we no longer fly. This update resulted in the “Prefer/Avoid Aircraft” property being removed from all standing bids. This means that if you use the “Prefer/Avoid Aircraft” property in your standing bid, it was removed, and you need to re-add this property.


Allocations

24% of April flying is wide body flying made up of domestic and international sequences.

787 domestic flying:

  • DFW two-day April 1st, 2nd & 4th-May 1st
  • LAX red-eye turn April 4th-May 1st
