Section 12.C.4 of the JCBA provides that days off preceding and following a scheduled vacation period as shown in a Flight Attendant’s schedule shall be considered part of that vacation period, if she/he so desires.  This provision was implemented in November 2016.

“Days off preceding and following a scheduled vacation” are based on the Flight Attendant’s original line of flying, are considered part of a Flight Attendant’s vacation and are “sacred” days, which are treated in the following manner:

  • The company cannot assign training on those days, unless a Flight Attendant has specifically bid for the training.  It is still the Flight Attendant’s responsibility to ensure that she/he maintains her/his qualifications.
  • The company cannot schedule a meeting on those days, without the Flight Attendant’s consent.
  • The company cannot reassign a Flight Attendant to infringe on those days, if there is an ability to return the Flight Attendant to base before the start of a sacred day.
  • Flight Attendants may not be drafted on a sacred day.
  • NOTE: A lineholder who picks up open flying on one of the days off immediately following a vacation period has signaled the end of her/his vacation. Any remaining days off are treated simply as regularly scheduled day off - not as additional vacation days.
