Starting on April 3, 2017, the terms of Section 3.I.12. and 3.I.13. of Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement (JCBA) which covers the first and last segment deadhead deviations will be implemented. This communication describes the steps a Flight Attendant must follow when either the first or last segment of their trip is a deadhead segment and she/he elects not to fly on the scheduled deadhead segment (also known as "deviating").

First Segment Deadhead: Base to Base (Section 3.I.12.a.)

On trip pairings where the initial segment is a deadhead between Flight Attendant domiciles (for example, EWR-IAH or ORD-LHR), Flight Attendants may elect to check-in at the deadhead destination domicile, which will become her/his new point of origin.

Procedures to follow when checking-in at the deadhead destination domicile:

  1. If you elect to check-in at the deadhead destination domicile, you must notify Crew Scheduling a minimum of twelve hours (12:00) prior to the deadhead departure time. (Crew Scheduling may waive this time requirement at their discretion).
  2. You will be responsible for your own transportation to the deadhead destination domicile.
  3. At the time that you contact Crew Scheduling to notify them of your election to check in at the deadhead destination domicile, you will also be responsible for providing a contact number for use in the event of reassignment.
  4. You will be required to contact Crew Scheduling to check-in at the deadhead destination Domicile. Check in time is determined as if you are originating a trip out of that domicile. During that check-in call, you must confirm that you are at the airport and in position for your flight.

You should verify the correct report time with Crew Scheduling when you notify them of your election to check-in at the deadhead destination Domicile.

A Flight Attendant who complies with Section 3.I.12.a. shall receive her/his regular pay and per diem for the scheduled deadhead segment.

First Segment Deadhead: Downline Stations (Section 3.I.12.b.)

On trip pairings where the initial segment is a deadhead to a non-Base/downline location (for example EWR-FLL or ORD-ATL) a Flight Attendant may, with prior approval from Crew Scheduling, elect to check-in at the deadhead destination which will be her/his new point of origin.

Procedures to follow when checking-in at a downline station:

  1. If you wish to check-in at a downline station, you must first obtain approval from Crew Scheduling a minimum of four (4) hours prior to the deadhead departure time. Crew Scheduling may waive this time requirement at their discretion.
  2. You will be responsible for your own transportation to the new point of origin.
  3. At the time that you contact Crew Scheduling to obtain approval to check in at the downline station, you will be required to provide a contact number for use in the event of reassignment.
  4. You will be required to contact Crew Scheduling to check-in at the downline station no later than the scheduled check-in time for the original deadhead segment. During that check-in, you must confirm that you are already at the deadhead destination and available to operate the outbound flight.
  5. You are responsible to be at the gate no later than the check-in time for a Flight Attendant reporting from layover at that station.

A Flight Attendant who complies with Section 3.I.12.b. shall receive her/his regular pay and per diem for the scheduled deadhead segment.

Last Segment Deviation: Domestic (Section 3.I.13.a.)

When a Domestic pairing ends with a deadhead segment, a Lineholder may, with prior notice to Crew Scheduling, and a Reserve may, with prior approval from Crew Scheduling, elect not to fly on the scheduled deadhead segment.

Procedures to follow when deviating from the last segment domestically:

  1. A Lineholder who elects not to fly the scheduled deadhead segment must contact Crew Scheduling to provide notice in advance of the scheduled deadhead segment. A Reserve must contact Crew Scheduling to receive approval in advance of the scheduled deadhead segment.
  2. At the time you provide notice/receive approval to not fly the scheduled deadhead segment, you will need to advise Crew Scheduling whether you elect to:
  • be released from duty; or
  • deadhead on an earlier flight over the same routing, if seats are available.

       3. If you elect to be released from duty:

  • You are entitled to positive space travel (PS5B) over the same routing as the original deadhead, for a period not to exceed 24 hours from the departure of the scheduled deadhead segment.
  • Crew Scheduling will book your positive space travel at the time you provide notice/receive approval not to fly the scheduled deadhead segment.

Example: Scheduled deadhead LAS-ORD departing at 12:05 p.m. on February 27.  If you provide notice/receive approval not to fly the scheduled deadhead segment, Crew Scheduling will book a PS5B flight to ORD for you as long as it is scheduled to depart LAS no later than 12:05 on February 28.

LAS-DEN-ORD would not be an acceptable routing.

  • If you elect not to utilize the PS5B pass, you will be responsible for your own transportation from the deadhead origination station.

       4. If you elect to deadhead on an earlier flight over the same routing, if seats are available:

  • Crew Scheduling will book your earlier deadhead at the time that you provide notice/receive approval not to fly the scheduled deadhead segment.
  • By electing to deadhead on an earlier flight you are deemed to have waived any duty time limitations necessary to complete the deadhead segment.

      5. Per diem will be paid based on the scheduled deadhead segment or the segment on which the Flight Attendant actually deadheads, whichever arrives earlier.

A Flight Attendant electing not to fly on the scheduled deadhead segment as described in Section 3.I.13.a. shall receive her/his regular pay for the scheduled deadhead segment, but shall not be entitled to any additional or premium pay related to her/his election.

Last Segment Deviation: International (Section 3.I.13.b.)

When an International pairing ends with a deadhead segment, a Flight Attendant may, with prior approval from Crew Scheduling, elect not to fly on the scheduled deadhead segment.

Procedures to follow when deviating from the last segment internationally:

  1. If you elect not to fly the scheduled deadhead segment, you must contact Crew Schedule to receive approval in advance of the scheduled deadhead segment.
  2. At the time you have receive approval to not fly the scheduled deadhead segment, you will need to advise Crew Scheduling whether you elect to:
  • be released from duty; or
  • deadhead on an earlier flight over the same routing, if seats are available.

      3. If you elect to be released from duty:

  • You are entitled to positive space travel (PS5B) over the same routing as the original deadhead, for a period not to exceed 24 hours from the departure of the scheduled deadhead segment.
  • Crew Scheduling will book your positive space travel at the time you provide notice/receive approval not to fly the scheduled deadhead segment.

Example: Scheduled deadhead LHR-ORD departing at 12:05 p.m. on February 27. If you receive approval not to fly the scheduled deadhead segment, Crew Scheduling will book a PS5B flight to ORD for you as long as it is scheduled to depart LHR no later than 12:05 on February 28.

LHR-EWR-ORD would not be an acceptable routing.

  • If you elect not to utilize the PS5B pass, you will be responsible for your own transportation from the deadhead origination station.

       4. If you elect to deadhead on an earlier flight over the same routing, if seats are available:

  • Crew Scheduling will book your earlier deadhead at the time you receive approval not to fly the scheduled deadhead segment.
  • By electing to deadhead on an earlier flight you are deemed to have waived any duty time limitations necessary to complete the deadhead segment.

      5. Per diem will be paid based on the scheduled deadhead segment or the segment on which the Flight Attendant actually deadheads, whichever arrives earlier.

A Flight Attendant electing not to fly on the scheduled deadhead segment as described in Section 3.I.13.b. shall receive her/his regular pay for the scheduled deadhead segment, but shall not be entitled to any additional or premium pay related to her/his election.
