The above example shows July's domestic Open Flying allotment for LAX. Take a look at July 13. The first number after this date shows the total amount of Open Flying trades allowed for that day. In this case, it's 60. The second number shows the amount used thus far. In the case of July 13, there have been 51 trades with Open Flying awarded for that day, with only 9 to go before that day's allotment is completely full.
When considering the Open Flying allotment, remember that the quota is based on days you are trying to trade out of. It doesn't affect days you are trying to trade into. This is extremely important to remember when arranging your trade preferences. Take another look at the example above. If you had a two-day trip on July 15, you would be unable to trade out of that trip with Open Flying (the allotment is full on July 16).
Our current contract allows for not less than 4% of the active flight attendant population for each type of flying assigned to the domicile. Of course, "If the needs of the service permit, Onboard Scheduling may allow the daily allocation to be exceeded."
Also: Same day trades have a set of different allotment amount. This allotment is 10% above the 4% allotment mentioned earlier. In other words, Same Day trades will be processed beyond the 4% allocation to the maximum of 10%. You can view your domicile's Same Day trade allotment with Open Flying on a screen called SAMDAY.
