Vacation Award Process Clarification

Recently, we have received inquiries regarding the vacation bid award process, specifically, in circumstances when Flight Attendants bid separate vacation periods in the first round.  

To clarify, the computer will respond to all bids placed on file during the first round at the same time before proceeding to the next Flight Attendant in seniority order.

Keep in mind, if you are unable to hold any of your bid selections, your bid will be considered insufficient.  Any bid vacation periods that are not awarded will be considered “insufficient bids”.  Section 12.F.2. of our JCBA provides “… all vacations shall be awarded in Vacation Bid Seniority order within each Base.”  

If you have additional questions or need clarification on any part of the vacation bidding process, contact the Vacation Team or your Local Council Office.
